I love this post. A while back I had to create a daily schedule for myself (I'm trading full-time from this month),because I would go crazy just watching the monitor. The other thing that I'm used to so much is time worked=money earned. In trading that's only half true. I needed to create the schedule to force myself not to stare at the monitor the whole day and 'see' trades that didn't exist. I still have to work at that, because I created a trade this afternoon, which went sour by the way.
Anyway, I'm going to simplify things to the point where I watch the market before the candle closes and ask myself one question: "Do I like what I see?". I believe that after all the backtesting etc. I have somehow hardcoded my favorite setups into my subconscious. From now on it almost becomes 2nd nature. Let's see if I'm right.....
That is true, I work maybe 30min a day at the most, I spend more time posting here then anything lol.
Keep taking CT trades, I need more money :)
