That’s their very nature.
Are we in the game to be manipulated?
What’s your answer?
Mine is no.
It’s a pretty emphatic no.
I’ve backed my no with action.
How do I stop the markets from manipulating me?
The answer if found in one’s trajectory of action.
Is there anything in one’s market actions that can be easily second-guessed by the market?
For example, is one acting upon plain vanilla technicals?
Is one acting upon news? Results? Announcements?
Let’s not base our action upon anything the market is doing or telling us to do.
It’s as simple as that.
With that, we’ve already shut out all avenues for manipulation.
Where does that leave you?
What to do now?
You must be asking this.
Well, build your own system.
Let it expand and explore.
Let it gain complexity.
Let it boil the complexity down to simplicity.
Let your actions be based upon your unique bridges.
Yes, build your bridges.
Make your own market landmarks.
When you act, nobody knows that you are acting.
If nobody even knows that you are implementing an action, well, then nobody can know what that action is, or how it is implemented.
You’re done already.
Enjoy your non-manipulable existence.
I wish for you that it is lucrative!
