Lions are the ultimate apex predator. But despite their deadly reputation, not every hunt is successful.
When hunting solo, lions have a kill rate of just 17%. In other words, they only catch their prey in one out of every six attempts.
When they hunt as a group, their success rate goes up to one in three.
During a night hunt, their odds are even better. And in areas with tall grass, the rate of success jumps to above 50%.
This is where the lion has an edge.
Trading is not much different…
Buying stocks based on gut feelings and whim is unlikely to achieve a high rate of success.
Choosing from a filtered list of names with strong fundamentals will improve your results.
Further screening for those in confirmed uptrends will lead to additional success.
And buying the best of those when they are breaking out of tight consolidation zones should tilt the odds squarely in your favor.
The difference between traders and lions is that traders don’t get hungry.
There is no reason to ever force a trade out of desperation.
Lions must feed every three or four days. Otherwise, they will starve.
But we can go weeks or even months without a kill.
That is our edge. And it is our biggest advantage as traders.
The Epitome of Trading
This reminds me of one of my favorite quotes…
It comes from a legendary trader named Stan Weinstein:
“Although the cheetah is the fastest animal in the world and can catch any animal on the plains, it will wait until it is absolutely sure it can catch its prey…
It will wait for a baby antelope, and not just any baby antelope, but preferably one that is also sick or lame…
Only then, when there is no chance it can lose its prey, does it attack. That, to me, is the epitome of trading.”
