Profitable ETF Trading Strategies: integrating your beliefs about self market and systems
I have already described in a previous article how I examine each of the three components of my total market performance perspective individually and some of the considerations that I am evaluating. These three components are: self, market and system. Each of these domains is a suitable topic for inquiry and self discovery. But this three-part model is much richer than that.
After first examining each of these areas and my beliefs about them, I can then consider the overlap of interest areas between any two of these three domains, such as the intersection between self and system, and self and market, and that of market and system. Each of these domains is an area of goodness of fit that can be explored and understood to find the sweet spot that works for me.
Finally I can consider all three of these domains simultaneously and once again look for a sweet spot where all three areas contribute to my competitive advantage.
Because of the possibility of learning and feedback in evolutionary change, I consider these three domains to be dynamic and ever-changing and so the importance of regular feedback and analysis and reflection becomes crucial to my continued performance.
I recommend beginning the process of discovery learning by reading a popular book or two from a respected author who trades in a manner that is similar to what intuitively appeals to you. Begin deconstructing their belief system, chapter and verse. By itemizing the beliefs you can start constructing a belief network and determine which of those believes resonate most strongly with you, which will then support analysis into determining what actions logically follow from holding these beliefs and how you can test them.
By starting with a recognized author, you will save yourself much of the early part of the learning curve and since time is your irreplaceable resource any savings here can be very useful later on.
