Al thinks that he looks at price action differently from most traders because he believes that there is significance to every tick that takes place during the day and none of what happens is noise. There is an incredible amount of information embedded in charts of every time frame and he thinks that each of the 200 or so major firms are very familiar with many pieces of the puzzle, but much of the puzzle is actually invisible to all of them. No one has to see all of the pieces to consistently make money, but the more that a trader sees, the more opportunities he has to make a profit. He doesn’t claim to see the entire puzzle, but he at least thinks that it is much more complex and fascinating that what everyone makes it sound, and much of his enjoyment comes from continuing to discover tiny new pieces.
