PREP FOR THE TRADING DAY
I enjoy your articles and hope you can help me. I am not a newbie trader, and I have been doing okay for the last three years. I have friends who tell me they spend more than two hours each morning before the market opens getting ready for the session. I daytrade some and swing trade some, and I spend time on research. Mostly I look at fundamentals and technicals, and seek breakouts and other anomalies. I rarely spend more than two hours per week at this. Is there something I’m missing? What do your traders spend their prep time doing? Any help would be appreciated. — evolution4
Thanks, and please keep reading Stocks & Commodities. I have to say that S&C is one of the longest-running, solid trading resources available. Yes, I’m a bit biased, but I respect what they do here.
