Bigger is better, right? Well, traditionally, yes. However, sometimes a new way or an original idea is just downright better than conventional methods. Take, for example, a fight between the big guy and the little guy. What advantages does each one have, and who will win?

Big Guy Little Guy
Muscle Mass Not muscle bound
Powerful hits Fast, successive strikes
More damage per connection Better angle for body striking
Better long range Better short range

Delusions Every Trader Faces

Usually when we think of delusions we imagine mental disorders: someone struggling with schizophrenia or hypochondria. We may even imagine somebody we know–somebody who is high-strung with anxiety and convinced the world is out to get them. There are some pretty bizarre delusions out there:

Indecision In The Markets

[fa icon="calendar'] Apr 12, 2018 12:24:36 PM / by Cassidy Lucas posted in Apiary Fund, Trader Development

One thing I’ve struggled with is indecision. While it is good to want to the best decision, sometimes indecision has the ability to freeze us – which is not so good while trading. Feeling stuck between two choices while trading can lead to lost opportunity and money. My father recognized my reluctance to make choices when I was still pretty young and has tried to help me recognize the value in making correct choices quickly.

Have you ever watched those inspirational videos about people who do amazing things, and you commit to becoming a better person? I love those videos, and I think that they do a lot of good in reminding me of the person I want to become. However, sometimes I set up unrealistic expectations for myself.

Positions, Risk, and Buffets

[fa icon="calendar'] Dec 8, 2017 10:30:00 AM / by Cassidy Lucas posted in Apiary Fund

You don’t want to have too many active positions open; it’s like eating too much food at your favorite buffet. Buffets can be good. Buffets can be very good. However, you almost always–or at least I do–walk (if you still can) away from a buffet in pain–sometimes in a great deal of pain. I like the illusion that I have control over myself around food, but that disappears as soon as I see a soft serve ice cream machine paired with caramel and hot fudge pumps. There’s this mode that I enter when I’m in a buffet. I become this mindless food eating machine that inhales plate after plate of mediocre greasy food just because I can. Forget the fact that I’ve been working on not eating carbs for the past three weeks, I’m have four or five rolls with honey butter.

We all know everything in California is known to cause cancer, right? How could you miss it when there are warning signs posted on your grocery bags, in your hotel room, a restaurant, and even as you enter the Disneyland Resort. If simply entering the state is known to ‘cause cancer and birth defects,’ then why do 38.8 million people live there?

It is essential to understand money management before you enter the market. In fact, learning the essentials is important before you try anything. I learned this lesson years ago while caring for my neighbors animals.

Yoda Quote #1, “Much to learn…”

“Much to learn you still have, my old padawan, this is only the beginning”

Count Dooku grew strong in the dark side and wasn’t afraid to show it either. Yoda, however, understood something that Dooku didn’t grasp–the dark side may be powerful, but when a sith lord believes that they can control the dark side then it controls them.

Yoda Quote #2, “There Is No Try…”
