I realize saying something is “next level thinking’ reeks of exaggeration and being overly dramatic, but in this case, it’s not. There was a recent event that took place in the markets that illustrates how we as traders and investors need to be thinking in “next level” ways. To be fair to all those who fall into the trap (including me when I first got started), you aren’t stupid. In fact, you are thinking in a rationale and logical way. The problem is though, within the world of trading and investing the logical way to think is oftentimes the worst way to think. What do I mean? Let me explain not “in theory” but rather using a real life event that just happened serving as an excellent case study.
