Time is the most important resource to anyone in the market. Emotion is the salt to let you show the impact of environment and self-evaluation in the environment. The salt would let you feel tasteful in the way for any thing what you really want. So what you want? There are a lot of options. Randomly picking up one and swinging among them? Market could be a game ground or Casino, or Winning battle fields for the resources of your dreams! Trading forum could be easy just to let game players in, or open to all which would promote itself for its own business objectives. What you want and what you get are different! The key is how! Owners of Casino could be wise or not wise! All need have some strategic thinking if they want the market is a winning battle fields rather than the place to kill the time. We could say we don't want to kill the time but we do so consciously or sub-consciously. Graham consciously play to kill the time and all of others want to win but just don't know how to play to winning and actually play for playing! So if you could stand at some level of philosophy, you have to ask yourself: Are you playing to play or playing to win? If you are playing for play, you don't need any motivation to think but just post what you have got! If you just want to keep the old boys for them to play here for free and hope fads come back, everything is fine. If you want to play to win, you have to know: 1. how to maneuver the competitors into positions and markets where they are forced to invest heavily to stay competitive or 2. how to engage weaker rivals in a war of attrition, eventually forcing them out of business. 3. or how to avoid direct competition with any rivals in a war but let the most powerful forces to fight each others and you just collect the rewards in the ruins when the war have short term pauses. 4. how to avoid any competition without good enough reward based on the calculated least cost from your treasure! 5. how to hit back with the least force and defeat any sides of the war who just hit you unpredictably even it looks improbable. War and game are about the art. You should know the art if you don't just want to kill the time, which hasn't an end and should be all about the life!
