Marcus Raiyat's key Principles:
As traders, we are slaves to volatility. If the market doesn't move, we have no opportunities. We, therefore, must understand what is driving the price through fundamental analysis, and use historical volatility assessments to determine the risk-adjusted pay-off on all of our trades.
Self-discipline, goal setting, and self-reflection will be the three main skills that determine whether your approach to the market allows you to gain profit.
You can't use just one 'type' of analysis to make money trading. You need a multi-dimensional approach using Fundamentals, Technicals and Business Cycle methods. If you miss one of those factors, the odds of making money are reduced to zero.
