Easy Rider

The best thing I ever did as a trader was to completely ignore the news and simply focus on my technical analysis and system rules instead. A policy that not only has kept me out of a laundry list of bear traps over the years but also allowed me to take advantage of entry opportunities while the majority of participants were left rubbing their backside.
