4 Now there are diversities of gifts, but the same Spirit.
5 And there are differences of administrations, but the same Lord.
6 And there are diversities of operations, but it is the same God which worketh all in all.
7 But the manifestation of the Spirit is given to every man to profit withal.
8 For to one is given by the Spirit the word of wisdom; to another the word of knowledge by the same Spirit;
9 To another faith by the same Spirit; to another the gifts of healing by the same Spirit;
10 To another the working of miracles; to another prophecy; to another discerning of spirits; to another divers kinds of tongues; to another the interpretation of tongues:
11 But all these worketh that one and the selfsame Spirit, dividing to every man severally as he will.
(1 Corinthians 12: 4-11, KJV)
As a trader, you may have a gift to trade a certain futures product (e.g., S&P 500, T-Bonds, Oil or Gold, etc.) within the following broader markets: currencies, energies, financials, grains, indices, meats, metals and softs. Explore certain currency pairs within the forex. Explore ETFs, mutual funds–and the stock market through a certain favorite stock or stocks.
I recommend specializing in a single product and continually learning everything about it both fundamentally and technically. This presupposes your having discovered your gift in trading this specific product. Once you know what to trade, you need to know how to trade it.
Are you gifted at scalping, daytrading, swing trading or investing? Be careful in testing for your gift because your gift may be swing trading oil whereas you may fail miserably daytrading oil. Also, you need to discover whether to trade the product (futures contract, stock, etc.) directly or through a derivative such as an option. Some people are natural born option traders.
The Holy Spirit
So Terry, the Holy Spirit is actively involved in dispensing individually tailored spiritual gifts to specific traders? Yes. Alrighty then. Remember, trading can be a spiritual journey for spiritually inclined individuals—as well as others.
