Evolution of Price Action Trader: Part 2

Part 2: What is my goal as trader?

I revisited my research question, why this market eludes me, what is this market…………. And it was then my ignorance again came to limelight; all through this years I was trying to capture this market. But this invisible market is actual made of traders like me. The invisible force that drives, that gives momentum, is made up me…. If that is so why should I chase…….. Why can’t I be the market???

If market is made up of me, however little I am (as a retailer), I am still the market; if so, then I need to understand myself so deeply, that the very essence of my existence should be the existence of the market. So I changed my thought process and said to myself that “I want to be the market and that is my goal” I did thought for a second , am I thinking crazy, arrogant to say that I am the market??

However with my firm goal to be “THE MARKET”, I started exploring further on this line of thought. The whole series of numerous questions that started bombarding my brain, which was very different from my starting point of “just making money as trader”. I should confess, I started observing my existence so critically that I started questioning myself what gives existence to me? How do I know I am alive? How do I know I am stressed? How do I know I am relaxed? How to I know when I am going to run?? How to know when will I return back? Is there any place for me to rest after returning?? if so where? The thoughts were running very crazily, but I was seeing very different perceptive, which I have not seen as price action trader. During this experiential learning process, all that I have learned is the same the basic fundamentals and terminologies, but the approach was very different and enjoyable, rewarding and made my thought process very clear at the end.

While this experience of mine may be very very trivial for many professional and on this professional platform, still I thought I will share the same, for all the learned and professional to critically comment on the process. Further articles are useful only for beginners and not for seasoned players.
Thanks for your precious time……
The thought process shall continue………
