Trend Trading is Like Storm Chasing
You need to find the right catalysts in the atmosphere.
You see news is like a cold front. It can trigger activity if other conditions are favorable.
You see storms are like volume. They can move (price) rapidly.
You go to where you can observe/spot the trend/enter a trade.
You record the event, follow over time closely/monitor the trade.
You recognize when the storm/trade has weakened/strengthened.
You get out of the way if it puts you in danger/start to lose money.
You review/learn from your predictions and your observations and your actions/trade log.
You look for a new catalyst, a new piece of news, a new trade.
