MarketLife Ep 30 – Market Intuition: what it is and how to get it

Podcast-Cover300This episode takes a look at market intuition–a subject that is a bit difficult to talk about. In response to a number of reader questions, I share some concrete ideas for developing and expanding your own intuition. Here are the show notes:


Two kinds of intuition

  • Data-based
  • ESP (can’t really do much with this one, so we will focus on the first)

Open yourself to intuition

  • Must seriously accept the possibility of intuition existing
  • Meditate

Do everything you can to foster implicit learning

  • Immerse yourself in the data
  • Study wide and deep
  • Write things down
  • Work for the right mental attitude
  • Sleep

Develop general intuition

  • Accept everything as a sign
  • Develop a vocabulary of symbols
  • Become sensitive to feelings
  • “sending” exercise
  • Association
  • Dream journal

Develop market intuition

  • Emotional control
  • Journal
  • Decide how you are going to use it
