A member asked:
I assume the Mastery Course is a whole and complete work.
Can your one hundred and a few public (not only for members) blog posts that you have posted before completing the course, supplement the course?
Could those posts complement the course in a way?
Or the mastery course is so complete that if one would read the public posts after thoroughly reading the course, he wouldn’t profit from it, as there is no new or any other plus info in those posts that can’t be read in the course?
Let me ask this separately about the Order Flow Exercises post (http://orderflowforex.com/resources/order-flow-exercises/);
is it to be followed – or I would rather follow the things suggested in the course instead?
Everything I have written can supplement the course. I made made posts on FFactory and blog posts on OFX. Some of them were from my early days when I was a noob. But if you want, you can go back and see my evolution. Or you can just read my trading journey section and the mastery course where I discuss how I came upon the revelations and challenges I went through.
Since you bought the mastery course, I would spend most of the time on that. It is my most complete work up until this point. It isn’t everything I know because I have much more information about trading philosophy, systems , psychology and personal development and hedge funds that I did not have time to include. It would of taken me 5-10 years to complete it and I didn’t want to spend so much time. Better to release it now and add more content later. I will be going over my thousands of notes and pages and extracting the insights into free blog posts and premium lessons over the next few months.
The thing with my free content released years ago is that I was kind of afraid to talk about order flow and share all my secrets. So that came across in my writing. I tried to keep things a secret, because I felt it would hurt my profit potential. But now I have since shed any inhibitions and released everything I knew in the mastery course. So I would focus on the mastery course.
Follow the order flow habits in the course. Or use them as a template to develop your own. You may like some of them or throw away other ones. You may develop your own. Just try to make your habits revolve around the universal principles of speculation that I have talked about over and over in the course. Try to make your habits revolve around the liquidity, volatility, information flow, news, expectations, scenarios, sensitivity, positioning, macro, ODVE, MDMM, GM moves, etc and every other principle I have shared.
You may tweak others. For example, I stopped recording the news in my Microsoft Word files because it was taking too much time. Now I just read the article and only copy and paste the relevant snippets that I feel are important. Then I write in 1-4 sentences where I explain the market action for that day in the specific financial instrument I am trading. That saves me 20-40 minutes per day now.
