breathing = trading

June 12, 2010 6 comments

  • ask yourself: “what is the crowd waiting for?” “What do they need to see?”
  • What would confirm in their mind that the trade is NOW?!”
  • learn to see it before it happens
  • create separation between you and the crowd
  • be on the edge of them, so you can sense the mood, but don’t be inside the crowd
  • be aware of the crowd but be OF the crowd
  • be positioned in the quiet moment before they take off running
  • let their energy propel your position
  • if you are using “Red-Doji-Green-Go” on the 5s, consider the 1s or 3s as you see the front end of a doji occurring
  • what’s a doji look like as it is beginning to form?
  • a change in the downtrend that was the big red candle….failure to fail further, created the beginning of the doji
  • that’s the time to dial in and listen carefully
  • do you hear the absence of further failure?
  • do you hear the quiet pause between exhale (fear, selling, money flowing out) and the inhale?
  • (beginning to generate the energy of the next leg up)
  • this is the “natural respiratory pause”
  • this is the moment we train in marksmen
  • to pull the trigger at a moment of stability
  • in between the exhale and inhale
  • it’s the most stable moment in the body
  • there are 3 points in the breath: inhale, pause, exhale
  • in your practice of meditation, do some breath work:
  • 4 counts inhale, 4 counts pause, 4 counts exhale, 4 counts pause
  • learn to recognize and feel each state
  • learn the quality of the pause
  • feel your smooth emotional state
  • sip the air in, hold, let it seep out, hold
  • now feel price breathing
  • learn to dial in to the pace of the breath in the cycle that seems to be in force
  • sometimes at the opening its 5s and 1s; later it may be 15s and 5s, or 60 and 15
  • try Ken Cohen’s CDs on breathing meditations
  • monitor the breathing of the crowd
  • but don’t breath with them
  • stay true to your cycle of breathing
  • dont match their pace
  • watch cats stalking and watch their breathing
