Keep the War SHORT (Sun Tzu – The Art of War)
In relation to war, the role of “time” plays a big part in determining the outcomes. War is so costly and resources get consumed much more quickly than you realize. War should never get prolonged. Time is a critical variable which must be considered.
Same for trading.
A prolonged Bull fight hurts the fighting bulls to the benefit of waiting tigers. When 2 leaders are in conflict, they become easy prey to a third party waiting in the wings. Even when one bull survive the long struggle, victory is short lived, for he has been weakened. A patient tiger is a hungry tiger, and will surely pounce on the injured bull. The prize of victory will be too tempting for the tiger to resist. The sly tiger will not wait but will instead pounce, fast and furious. Any strategist will surely advise the tiger to seize the opportunity.
How do we apply this theory to trading?
