What the market promises us, a reminder.

This is not going to endure me to my fellow traders but I think it is important that we all are reminded what the market promises us. My twitter and RSS feed is blowing up with a disturbing number of comment and posts about the market being broken.

Market Promises:

It promises a playing field, not the game.
It promises to reward risk, not proportionately.
It promises opportunity, it does not promise profits.
It promises a lesson, not learning.
It promises that the quality of indicators and analysis is proportionate to quantity of participants.

Once again I am not without my struggles; this market is not easy for me or anyone I talk to regularly. I have had to make changes that I did not want to make. I thought once 2008 happened it would always be like that. It has been a rude awakening.
