Adaseb you were right, I didn't like what I read but I totally agree that a trader needs to watch the market live. From your side do you just mean watching the market any timeframe/tickframe or even switching between timeframes/tickframes? I mean the point is just to spend time in front of the screen watching the market and get used to it?
I tried to do that in the past. I ll be honest, it is really boring especially if you stick with just one pair. But if you say it works I ll try to do it for a month or so.
How much time should I spend per day just watching the markets?
I know these questions sounds like newbie questions, I m not one. I m used to answer to newbies all the time. But after 3 years restling with trading my mind is so confused and overloaded with so many garbage I ve learned so far that I really don't know what to do.
What sessions are you available or during what sessions do you trade? NY? London? Asian?
By the way, when trading starts to get boring, that means you are doing something right.
I sometimes stare at the charts 16 hours a day throughout all the sessions and I just wait for opportunities. Trading is all about waiting, and its suppose to be very boring.
I am surprised that I put up with all this because I quit a white collar office job because it was boring as fvck and I couldn't sit infront of the computer for 8 hours a day. Now I do it for 16 hours a day and I do something that's even more boring. I guess its the money that motivates me and working for myself instead of a boss.
So you got to ask yourself. Can you spend all those hours in-front of a computer? Are you willing to brutally suffer?
