The Weekend Trader Part 1 - Time to Sling It
We all know the how the story ended, as Tom Brady quarterbacked one of the greatest Super Bowl drives ever to win Super Bowl XXXVI.
What some may not know, is the advice that Drew Bledsoe (for whom Tom had taken over during the season after a devastating injury) gave Tom on the sidelines just before beginning that drive.
He told Tom to "go out there and sling it".
For there are many phases in one's trading career, beginning with the huge learning curve and capital draining period that all must go through, yet few get past. Then, for the minority who do indeed weather the initial storm, one enters the fairly consistent phase where it's all about capital growth ... which at times will be rampant.
For after yet another helluva personal comeback, the score is once again tied and the game is on the line.
It's time to stop playing for overtime and go for the win.
It's time to sling it.
