That may not fully correct, but that is not wrong either. There are a lot of other things to focus on in trading. But all that may not be useful if you don’t understand momentum. Traders always need to stay on the right side of momentum. Focus on the direction and the strength of the momentum and also keep a tab on the triggers that can lead to shifts in momentum. That is the first lesson for any trader in the market! The really smart trader understands the message but positions himself well ahead of the others seeing the trend. Like the captain in the cricket field, the good trader has the ability to see the trend a tad before the others can.
