Price action goes into Map Syntax, answers come out. Listen to your MAPS.
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. ~

0000 TSLA 2013 - Case Study - 'Model Analysis'

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).

0002 4008:1 Cycle MoMo [MACRO Cycle Analysis]

The term TAILWINDS describes some condition or situation that will help move growth higher. For example, falling gas prices will help

NOTE: Cycle MoMo is NOT to be used in deciding if you should or should not trade a particular stock.
The chart of the stock you are considering taking risk with (micro) should be your guide. Cycle MoMo (macro) simply tells
us if there are TAILWINDS or HEADWINDS when taking risk with a momentum stock. For me, Cycle MoMo comes at the END
of my decision process to take risk, NOT the beginning. In Map Syntax land, MICRO always takes precedence over MACRO.
