For 2014 I would like to wish all of you discipline and patience in your trading!
A few words on why I think discretionary, day traders should limit the number of hours they spend in front of the screen….
The longer you trade, the more chances you give the market to frustrate you, tire you and get you to a point where you can make mental mistakes that will cost you quite a bit….
My recommendation is to work your trading hours into your life style and not vice versa unless you are a professional trader that actually makes a living from trading….
Few ways one can try to preserve their “trading career”, almost like an athlete who should not play the full game, every game as he/ she increases wear and tear, risk of injury etc….
Place a time limit.
Set a daily profit target
Set a daily loss limit
Learn what reports or possibly times of the day are not as friendly to the market you are trading. It can be because of light volume, perhaps around certain trading reports etc.
Learn to step away and take a break, ESPECIALLY when things are not going the way you would like them to.
Have patience and discipline!
