Note how price dances with geometry
We expect that many/most visitors to the geometricthinking (GT) site will be familiar with us already. Word-of-mouth, Twitter, blog posts, and ample exposure via such well known crypto news sites as Hacked.com, cryptocurrencynews.com, etc, have made us a fairly well-known entity within the crypto traders community. Many realize that we have a very unique trading methodology, which while not always 100% accurate, is nevertheless remarkable in it’s efficacy.
Geometric Thinking debuted in July 2017. We had a wildly successful run going into the December 2017 high. Some of our members literally became millionaires in those short 6 months.
We are quite familiar with the common trading tools and techniques. The problem is that 90+% of all traders use these same techniques and they routinely lose. Not a one of the typical trading tools is predictive. Who can look at a RSI divergence, or Bollinger band and say: “It looks like a low might be made ~ 7100, ~ 12/4/19?” Our guess is that no one can. But there are tools which will allow such forecasts to be made.
While we make note of such common indicators as divergence, trend line breaks or other such well-known techniques, we rely heavily on esoteric techniques not well known. What we have learned is that the universe does not operate the way we have always understood. Our eyes can only perceive a very limited slice of the entire electro-magnetic spectrum of light, right? 90+% of the spectrum is there, right in front of us all the time, but we can’t see it. Ponder that for a moment. Some 90% of what is “real”, is staring us directly in the face, yet we are completely oblivious to it. That is our reality.
Similarly, we have learned that humans overall (but traders in particular) move like a school of fish (or a flock of birds) changing direction all at once – as if they had run into an invisible brick wall. Why? What is the “invisible wall” that forces a change in direction? We don’t know that (yet), but we know that the walls are often found at certain geometric constants, Once we know where the walls are likely to be found we are able to enter and exit trades with a surprising confidence.
Those who have been with us for even a short time make great spokesmen….
In 2017 we taught several classes on such things as geometry as a trading tool, Gann insights, astro-trading, various esoterica, such as how to calculate energy points in time (We call them EPs). (We have learned so much more since 2017!)
We intend to begin teaching again in 2020, but this time we will include the cost of lessons in the cost of joining the community, so that all our members will be able to study together. This will be a marked difference over the way we operated in 2017.
We will spread the courses out over a much longer time frame to give people more time to practice what they are learning. We will also reduce the cost significantly compared to the 2017 cost. We expect even newbie traders will be able to afford to attend GT University.
These is but a small sample of the things we study.
We continue to harbor a goal of building a “Dream Team” of traders able to compete with the best of the Wall Street houses. We have learned that it takes time. People learn at their own pace – some quickly, some slowly, some never at all. But there are a handful of people who have stuck with the program, and so we are closer to our goal now than we were in 2017 when we started.
Regretfully, humanity is beset with psychological nuances that make success difficult. For traders, fear, greed and arrogance are our biggest enemies. All traders understand fear and greed right? But arrogance is often overlooked completely.
Despite all manner of coaching, after that awesome 2017 run, many young traders came to feel like they were like superman. Having made so much money so quickly in that spectacular bull market, they subconsciously felt they got rich because they were “geniuses”. Despite being “newbie traders” they nevertheless left to trade on their own, or followed the advice of unworthy charlatans, just as one of the most brutal bear markets of recent times was beginning. What could possibly go wrong – right?
We suspect that many of those traders lost their fortunes. This pains us. We wish we knew of a sure-fire way to make each unseasoned trader understand that arrogance is a killer in this business. In our opinion, only constant learning and study, coupled with a humble awareness that we are always, at best, making ‘educated guesses’ will lead to long-term success in this profession.
Regretfully, those who are the best, the “star students”, are the most susceptible to this curse. Others recognize their growing skills and unintentionally feed the demon. As teachers we do our best to prevent the best and the brightest from falling into that trap.
