Your Point of View Changes Your Trading Opportunities

I just spent the week celebrating Chinese New Year with Jennifer's side of the family In Jakarta.  

Gong Xi Fa Cai … which translates to "Best wishes for a prosperous New Year!"

Interesting to think how many New Year celebrations there are.  In addition to CNY, the Muslims have Hari Raya Idul Fitri; Jews have Rosh Hashanah; of course there is January 1st (and there are many others).

Which is correct?  

It's all a matter of perspective.

The same is true in trading.  At some level, there really isn't a correct answer to which trading style is best.

Whether you are choosing from fundamental analysis, technical analysis, trend following, channel breakouts, or statistical arbitrage, people have their opinions, but sometimes one works better than the others.

It is a lot easier to go to a party, when there is a party to go to … the trick is finding the celebration in the first place.
