Intuition Comes Unbidden

This comes from our Language of Markets Live session on 8/9/21 where we chose the GBP/USD 20 minute to do a lesson on how to map a market simply and objectively and to start with “what is”. The lesson was about much more than mechanically following objective instructions for a setup. It was about facilitating true learning. The focused, simple, and objective has the effect of relaxing our minds. It’s in this relaxation that intuition and our accumulated experiences become available to us in a way that brings a trade together.

Beginners Mind

What if there were no books or any instruction anywhere on how to trade and you figure it out by just observing and discovering? You would begin to trade based on your fresh observations, trying this and trying that, until you found your way, getting more efficient at it as you went, like a child learning to walk. If you did this, you would be learning from the price itself as it flowed, from a place of discovery and not-knowing. In our live Language of Markets session, we did an exercise where we took an active Emini-S&P market and learned as we went. I did this video later that afternoon to demonstrate how that exercise led me to my own beginner’s mind.
