Being humble means acknowledging that the market in its collective wisdom is bigger than all the participants. The market has no axe to grind and so it can afford to be as transparent and as dispassionate as possible. You as a trader can never be so dispassionate because there is your own money on the block. The first thing that a trader needs to learn is that the market normally sings a tune that we are not willing to hear. The fact still remains that the markets can tell us the truth and that is what matters. When we try to outsmart the market or seek revenge on the market, we are actually missing out on these cues. As a trader, you are the loser in the process!
