Read? I don’t know what I don’t know In investing or trading, some people know what they don't know; but believe some people know what they don't know. For example, I heard someone saying that his broker is good as he sent him some TA charts with some views. Actually, when you go around visiting investment, finance and trading blogs you will see lots of charts with convincing views presented in these blogs. They know what you don't know??? Don't be foolish to believe it. They are probably like you; they don't know what they don't know and act like they know. BTW, you don't need to have high IQ to do TA charting and present views or give 5 pointers. Anyone after seriously read a few TA books should to be able produce decent TA chart and present their views. It is not rocket science! I believe the most honest answer came from one Head of Research from XXX Securities at investment seminar after been scolded by an old man for causing him to lose money following her calls for years. She replied something like this: "If I really know; I won't be standing here giving stock view." Yes. That is absolutely true. She knows what she knows. She doesn't know what she doesn't know. But, some people like to believe what they hear and read and foolishly think that they know what we don't know. You don't know what I am saying??? hee hee!
