"Bulls and Bears make money, Pigs get slaughtered"?

Before computer algorithms started to affect the money that flowed through the stock market investors could hold trades for long periods of time and see consistent gains with little drawdown.

Those times have come and gone. Of course, the credit or blame for such a change does not solely rest on the shoulders of billion-dollar institutions dedicating large sums of money to developing sophisticated “trading algos”.

Technological advances in smartphones and web access have opened markets to the entire world and with this increase in liquidity fueling the markets, what use to be yearly gains are now 30-minute trades.

Bears aka Sellers and Bulls aka Buyers often have a long term bias that prevents them from realizing gains. People who actively trade the market, changing positions frequently while limiting their exposure to potential losses have been known as Pigs.

Like many techniques and strategies being used the opening statement above is outdated. Market pigs do get slaughtered at a 95% failure rate, but Bears and Bulls aren’t exempt from similar suffering. You can call yourself whatever you want, labels won’t save you from the killer sharks and whales that seem to have agendas that are not aligned with the interest of the people.

Most traders never make a dime in the financial markets. Risky Markets are here to stay and the only thing you can do to stop fund managers and big banks from taking advantage of the dollars you earn is to take control of where your money is allocated while orders are flowing.

The system is designed to look unstable from the outside it is imperfect and it is set up for most people to lose due to inaction or confusion.

I am neither Bear nor Bull, I attack the markets daily using techniques that I have learned from years of experience. I don't have to become a part of the war between buyers and sellers or hold long-term positions an effort to prove my bias is correct. I can execute 10 trades in a single day confidently in any direction because I understand how the market operates and I take advantage of opportunities the markets HAVE to offer to the people to justify its existence.

Order flow is what moves the markets, both buyers and sellers are present and needed in the market. There is more capital at risk in the market now than ever before. Some risks are not as calculated as others and learning how to manage risk is an entirely different story.

Here in the Price Investing Group, the focus is to eliminate all bias and move in unison with the markets. I want to find the best tools and instruments to help me execute risky option lotto’s that will allow 1000% gains and place large positions in seemingly worthless penny stocks to double my capital on a daily basis. I will not continue to buy every dip because I refuse to learn risk management and cut my positions when I see red, nor will I place a short trade and go hibernate hoping for a propped-up bull market to finally reverse. I want to sniff out the best opportunities and conquer my greed with risk management.

Bulls, Bears and Pigs
