Almost every month I’m scheduled to go 15 rounds …sometimes I win early and the month’s a coast..other months it’s a battle to the last second of the last round. I learned early to hate to lose.. not a round or two..no that’s the game..and I ain’t afraid to get hit a few times.. I take punches like a light breeze on a summer day… and I been knocked on my ass more than once..
During the fight I taste my own sweat and blood ..feel the effort down to the toes of my soul ..want perfection..come up short no doubt ..but at the end when you tally up that score.. all I want is the win..
What’s a win..500 to 1000 basis points ..every active month.. cause I don’t count summer..I take em off..and check out early before Christmas ..so it gives me a 9 month year to make my living…
I was lucky to be around for the greatest era of boxing … in 2 waves ..the heavyweights Ali Frazier Foreman Norton..and the mids.. Duran Leonard Hearns Hagler… these guys went 15 rounds..and that is super human..inspiring..and almost unbelievable.. especially if you ever experienced going 3 rounds..Ha!
Watching these guys …put it out there..almost every fight ..affected me.. This was competition..like none other before or since …a dazzling display of genetic gifts, skill, style, strength, grace, willpower, determination and self control.
These fighters made me realize you had to reach ..really reach for your talent.. and it’s a two sided battle..all the time..in the ring and out.. them vs you and you vs you…
So trading FX is like that for me.. I train myself ..I have no team..no support ..no staff ..no salary.. no pension..no connections..nothing..it’s all on me.
Trading can be like a boxing match.. I’ll take punches.. just to measure your power.. I’ll move left ..and watch what you do ..then vanish in a flash if you advance to strong..cause I’m no target, almost an Ali dance or Sugar Ray shuffle..almost.. if you come to far and get off balance, I’ll wait there on the ropes with a strong counter punch as you tire yourself out.. You will never see me toe to toe in the middle of the ring slugging it out.. my early days maybe… nowadays I match my style with my opponent and the day..patiently look for the weakness …let him lead ..I follow..if I can ..safely.. if not I’ll take a round off or two…but stay safe..stay safe..wait for my opportunity.. I’m no famous champion ..I have no knockout punch.. and I’m not putting on a show.. I’m just a mutt.. I need to go 15 rounds 9 months a year… and stay out of danger..so I can fight again ..next month. Why is trading easier than pro boxing..? ..because we can choose ..every trade when if how ..we engage.
So I wait ..I have all month ..I have to win ..I need 500 basis points
