Connect the Dots

Three years ago, in the month of October, Steve Jobs lost his battle with pancreatic cancer at the age of 56.May his soul rest in peace. This man was brilliant and inspiring. His commencement speech to the graduates of Stanford University in 2005 was considered as one of the best (Watch)

He always spoke about connecting dots. Till recently I could not get what it is all about.Here is a famous quote from Steve

 “Creativity is just connecting things. When you ask creative people how they did something, they feel a little guilty because they didn’t really do it, they just saw something. It seemed obvious to them after a while. That’s because they were able to connect experiences they’ve had and synthesize new things. And the reason they were able to do that was that they’ve had more experiences or they have thought more about their experiences than other people.”

Now I can relate this to my trading journey. I had spent thousands of hours searching the internet and hanging around in trading forums for a clue. This gave me a lot of ideas most of which were garbage. Finally I was able to eliminate a lot and retain a few which were useful.

Connecting all these things together and making an “Actionable” method took much more time. To be frank, I do not know when it happened. All I can say is one fine morning everything fell into place magically and price moves started making sense. Human brain is capable of doing it. Just give it sufficient time and adequate exposure. We can’t force it.

Hang on ensuring the survival. Focus on “Actionable” concepts and get a lot of exposure.  
Growth is always happening underneath. Success is always a Chinese Bamboo.    .  


  1. Hi ST

    Thanks for sharing with us all the efforts which you have put in to come up with a beautiful method. I just can't measure how much time have we all saved as you have shared your method. Thanks a lot.
    Steve Jobs was a great visionary. The world misses him. May his soul rest in peace always!!


  2. Dear ST

    Thanks for sharing the trading system which is very helpful for intra-day trading.


  3. Dear ST,

    Malcolm Gladwell in his book "The Outliers" talks about 10,000 hours rule and substantiates it with examples. I am sure that you will also concur that it takes around 10,000 hours to become world class in any given skill/activity/sport. You are definitely an 'Outlier'.

    Thanks a lot for your continuous guidance.


  4. Sir,

    Nice Video.

    You have connected all the dots after removing the filth and arrived at a unique and effective method. More importantly, you have offered it to one and all without any expectations. Further you post your trades every day and are willing to help out the newbies by clarifying their countless doubts.

    One could not have asked for anything more. All that every new trader has to do is to stick to this method so long as it takes without losing much money. Anybody having patience to put in the required time and energy in this method will eventually start winning consistently.

    Thanks for everything.
