Okay, this may be more of a trait than a skill, but if you aren’t naturally curious, it’s a trait you will want to develop. Traders who are genuinely interested in the economy, companies, markets, and crowd psychology will be able to find more unique trading ideas.
The more unique trading idea you can generate, the more opportunity you will have to profit.
Here’s a good way to get started. Whenever a price moves in the opposite direction to the way you expected it to move, try to find out why. Try to figure out what you could have known but didn’t. This line of thinking might lead to discoveries that can lead to new ways of generating trading ideas.
