The secret to making the big money is to maximize the big move

This principle took me a long time to learn, and most traders never will understand it. You might not have many trades that turn into big movers. The big movers are rare. Generally, just one or two trades will make a big year for you. Capitalizing on only two or three major trading campaigns could mean a lifetime of difference for you!

When I first started working on the floor of the Grain Exchange, I would see this one member, a relatively young man at the time, who'd visit every so often. He'd appear maybe once or twice a week, joke with some of the traders, check the markets, and at times, place a few orders. Then he would disappear for weeks or months. Over time, I got to know him better and learned he lived a happy life. The reason we would not see him for months was because travel was his passion. He could well afford to pursue his passion, because he was independently wealthy. It wasn't inherited money; he came from modest means.
