When you master your craft (trading system) and can execute flawlessly - There is a price you pay - Work (trading) becomes boring.
However, the financial rewards become astronomical, just ask Tiger Woods or Roger Federer. ....And when you ask them how
they MASTERED THEIR 'CRAFT', they will tell you, it isnt the mechanics or system of their game that takes them to the top, but rather,
the six inches of space between their ears that they have learned to manage and master. Trading is no different. ~

In my opinion, trading momentum is for the investor that wants to get paid right now. It is nothing more then participating in a trend. However,
momentum investing is 'NOT' a good 'risk/reward' trade. In fact it is risky because you are betting on other investors to keep buying in the face
of higher prices by chasing prices. We are trying to profit from investors' fear of 'MISSING THE MOVE'. However, you can manage this
risk well. How? Because you can always sell (if your wrong).

The term TAILWINDS describes some condition or situation that will help move growth higher. For example, falling gas prices will help a delivery
company be more profitable. Lower gas prices is said to be a tailwind for the freight services industry. HEADWINDS are just the opposite. Its a
situation what will make growth more difficult. For example, if the price of beef goes much higher, McDonald's is facing headwinds.
