Smart Bees During Fall

Fall is here and this is the last chance for bees to prepare their winter supplies. Flowers are rare, wind is getting stronger and temperature drops. It’s not a good condition to collect honey. As a smart species, during hard time like this; specially in cold, rain ,or windy, bees will stay in their hive. They don’t want to take high risk moves that give them very little benefit.
During the Fall, bees fix all cracks on the hive and reduce entrance size using propolis. It’s a smart action for little bugs. The egg laying of the queen bee tapers off or stops completely as the temperature drops. As the temperature getting colder, the bees will form tight cluster to keep the brood (eggs, larvae, pupae) warm. Bees are smart and hard working creature , but they emphasize smart above hard work. When the weather is too windy or cold, bees will stay in the hive. During winter, bees will form cluster to warm each other, the colder the weather the tighter the cluster.
Same like bees, traders should observe the market prior to trading execution. We need to recognize profitable trading hours, understand market volatility, plan trade strategy, know pair characteristics, etc. For example, when the market is quiet and in consolidation pattern, it’s not a good ‘weather’ to trade breakout strategy. It is wiser to stay out of market and make preparation for incoming volatility. Same like bee; bee’s job is to find flower and collect nectar, not grow the flowers. Trader’s job is to identify market trend and volatility, not to move the market.
Traders are supposed to work smart same as bees, not only work hard. Trading is supposed to be something to enjoy, not stress up.
