How can I outsmart the stock markets as a trader?

As a trader, your focus should never be on outsmarting the market. That is not the purpose at all. The purpose of trading is to read the signals of the market and trade accordingly. What do we understand by the term, “outsmarting the market”? When you start believing that you can actually fool the market and steal opportunities in trading; that is when you go wrong. Remember, the market has an uncanny method of being right in the most trying of circumstances. Hence as a trader your focus must be to be humble enough to accept the superiority of the market and trade within the signals given by the market. The market always has a story to tell you. It is up to you to listen to the story, grasp the intent and trade accordingly. If the market is displaying a trend that is illogical, it only means that the market is trying to tell you something you do not know. More often than not, you will realize that the market knows more than you do.
