There's Nothing Noble about Chasing... a Woman!
Pffh! I got you hooked! This is going to have a lot more open rates than usual.
Heck! Why’s he talking about women today? Did he get a dose?
A few years back in school, I had this friend; “Gift - not real name”. Pretty, lightskin, dimple, slim & curvy. She was every man’s rêve. Of course, she had a steady dose of admirers.
I happened to be close enough to Gift a few people thought long enough we had something going. You could bet - I was FRIEND-ZONED! That zone crushed me!
You wouldn’t believe who she liked; one nerdy slim smart boy who wasn’t into her (literarily treated her like piss). She wanted so bad to hear from him the earth-shattering flows all the other boys showered her. F**k! This kid had no juice!
Sometimes I felt like strangling her. It took me a while to figure out that a lot of women are like this. They don’t want you overly chasing them.
Doesn't matter if you’re genuine.
The moment you do, you begin to lose bargaining power.
It’s just human psychology.
It happens to virtually everything. Begging for a seat at the table, a job, love… whatever.
The typical mantra is to attract - not chase.
This is very important for trading as well. You’d always realize that your best trades are reactive trades and never the predictive ones. You need the patience to wait for the right setups, reversal confirmations before pulling the trigger.
The market is the pretty girl! A lot of experienced traders (handsome, rich, hot guys) are wooing her. She’s got a ton of choice about who to give the greens.
Desperation can be sniffed from miles away!
That’s why things like revenge trading, neglecting invalidation areas will never be a good strategy for a winning trader.
Just like pretty Gift, remind the market that you have options, and you’re not going to do the chasing - lest she sends you to the trenches!
Reminder… there’s nothing noble about chasing… a woman
