Yes it’s October. More importantly, it’s late October. The Boston Bearded Boys are taking on the Scrappy Red Birds in the World Series (PS, I can’t stand the Cardinals as I’m a DIE HARD Cubs fan…but I have much love for their fans as we have the most respectful rivalry in baseball) after VERY intense NLCS and ALCS! Both teams led their respective leagues in wins during the regular season, but during the playoffs, things like that don’t matter very much and anyone has a chance to win. Both the Boston Red Sox and the St. Louis Cardinals almost didn’t make it to the World Series during some very tough postseason play, but managed to get it done with both amazing pitching and some EXTREMELY clutch hitting (including a couple of historic grand slams for the BoSox).
WAIT A MINUTE! “I thought this was a forex article”. What am I pulling here? There’s lots to learn from postseason baseball to apply to forex. After trading for these years that I have, I often look outside financial circles to find lessons within them. As an avid hold em’ player, I have found many parallels there although few of them have to do with gambling. But that’s a discussion for a different time. What has the competitive, quality play of postseason baseball taught me about trading forex?
As many times happens in life, we can draw comparisons between things that might not initially seem correlated, and find out much about one from the other. I hope that you do the same and have enjoyed this little look at how postseason baseball is like great trading. May the best team win and may your trades be filled with pips!
