Study those who are a great success in your chosen field. Find out what makes them tick. Not so that you can copy their methods verbatim. (Any trader who has bought an ‘off the shelf’ trading system knows how hard it is to follow a system they haven’t had input into themselves).
Study the successful people in your field so your own views on the markets will be verified and validated.
When did you last read one of the books in the “Market Wizards” series? Chris Tate reads and re-reads them consistently. I can tell you why he does. Not so that he can learn the secrets of how those great traders trade. He reads so that he can test his own philosophies against those great in the trading field.
It’s gratifying and satisfying to know that you, and the one you have chosen to emulate, agree upon so much.
