The spirit and the active trader

We listen to “the market” as though it makes one statement with one voice each time it speaks.

The market always speaks. We sometimes don’t hear anything at all, but when we do, we hear the voice that suits us.

It aids our navigation to extract one voice from an enormity of signals.

In doing so, we add to the enormity… where sometimes the price may even capture our message.
