Colors have a massive impact in our life, none of us can deny it, they effect the way we think, the way we act and essentially control many aspects of our life. In fact there is not much aspects in life that are not influenced in some way by colors.
Firstly, let’s look at some examples, at a young age it is not uncommon for boys and girls to see particular colors differently, young girls tend to favor pink and young boys tend to favor blue. This seems normal yeah, but is it really? It is confronting to think and ponder on, is it not? To think a young boy could be scared stiff by pink and not wanting to associate with this color is serious, well at least it is for a young boy and I remember, no way was I going to have pink on my school bag or pink on my lunch box..
… But, wait on here, pink is just a color and a not a bad color at that.
… Now, here is the kicker, it does not stop here does it? It continues on with red being a color associated with the aspect to stop on traffic lights when we drive a car and green being a color to go. It also creates influence in symbols such as what the Police use in there lights or what a Ambulance uses for an emergency. Overall colors and symbols have a massive impact in our day to day life. Certainly, some of these effect us more than others on a psychological level.
Now, before I move onto addressing this impact of colors in Forex, first stop, close your eyes and imagine driving to a traffic light intersection. Then driving on a red light at the intersection or stopping on a green light at the intersection.
Now, let’s look at remote societies for a moment which are not effected or less effected by western influence, do they have these same psychological effects or reactions? Well they could be completely unbiased to pink or colors or even green may mean something completely different at a traffic light. They may also, think psychologically different to certain colors.
… Now, hopefully that is making you think and if so, good, that is what I wanted.
Now let’s go to the Forex Chart and look at some colors and there effects on the mind. Could it be that certain colors can effect us the same way on a Forex Chart in how we see the chart.. Let’s have a look?
Firstly Normal Green and Red Chart – Looks Right Yeah?
What about the Opposite with Red going up and Green Down, How do you feel?
How does Complete Red Make you feel? Are you feeling a little confused and strained?
Green seems better, but is it really..? Does it seem like the market is up always..?
Let’s go back to basics again, the Standard Black and White Template I use on Regular Weekly Outlooks. How does that make you feel? Should be okay again yeah?
However what about black as up and white as down. How do you feel now?
