There’s much talk of routine and rituals when attempting to trade the markets successfully, at the moment this seems to work best for me…
Having a healthy state of mind and being relaxed is important, but not so relaxed you’re not focused of course.
It all seems a bit superstitious to me (and I completely don’t beleive in anything like that) but there does seem to be a link between certain things I do and my results as they improve.
Kopparberg… it’s where it’s all at!
For me a cheeky Kopparberg seems to get me in the right frame of mind, my fridge is fully stocked!
Some of the other full-timers I’ve spoken to think it’s sheer lunacy, but it works for me. Everyone needs to focus and some need to work on that, where as I think I just need calming down half the time. One or two of these mid session go down quite nicely. Also it’s one of the things that make this the number one job for me! Where else could you do it and not be in trouble? Sometimes the little victories count the most haha.
With the summer weather on its way I’m really going to have to convince myself to sit in and trade the evening cards. I fully realise it’s an opportunity I shouldn’t miss, but if you don’t enjoy the fruits of your labour what’s the point? A little balance is in order im sure.
Come the end of the summer things could end up like this…. no joke
On the serious side of things though, trading drunk is a bad idea. Don’t do it! (I had to put the obligatory disclaimer in didn’t I)
