The Spider and the Fly` is a poem by Mary Howitt published in 1829. The first line of the poem is "'Step into my parlor' said the Spider to the Fly." The story tells of a cunning Spider who ensnares a naive Fly through the use of seduction and flattery. The idea is to kill the fly. The poem is a cautionary tale against those who use flattery and charm to disguise their true evil intentions.
The poem reflects market nature,that market also attracts fresh and immature entrant by its fancy things like:
---> No barrier in entering
---> Higher leverage
--> Home based work
---> Get easy quick money etc.
But in the end it shows its reality and draws every penny from the person.Does it mean the market is so evil and it is made only to fool people? Well, Market is not evil,and market does not go to people, the people goes to the market,and most of them just because of their greed and not because of their passion.So a greed evil is present in most of the immature traders and market can trap them easily like a Spider.
It takes 10 years to became a good doctor, 10 years to be a good lawyer, 8 years to be a good engineer,then how can someone imagine that he will be a good trader by just opening an account or by just reading one or two books or by only few months experience! It is also an reputed profession like others so why people do not think to learn first before entering in it.
The conclusion is it takes a long time to be a successful trader and a perfect discipline throughout the whole career. So traders should focus more on learning rather than earning and after that they can easily beat the Spider.
