Me: “How is trading going trading”
Greg: “Im too busy at work I cant find the time bro I dont know what to do”
Well this is a typical message between me and some of my guys.Usually this happens because of a few reasons but wont be covering much of that today will go over the best ways to trade while at work.
1.Trade larger time frame frame- Only nuts like us sit in front of the pc the whole day and trade.Even so trading larger time frames is best for a lot of people in general due to the high intensity required to maintain focus during the ups and downs of the market.When you trade larger time frames you have the benefit of staying in trades for weeks or months collecting profits as opposed to us who enjoy trading withing a few minutes profits and getting out because of our strategy.Although learning both strategies can be great you do need to know a longer term approach in general
2.Make Time-anyone looking for more than 24 hours in a day will hard a hard experience in life .You dont go down the street and bump into an extra hour or two and say ” Hey wena I’ve been looking for you” nope you have to make certain that you make time if you truly believe that trading is for you if not then even better.1 hour everyday scheduled could mean the difference between success and failure.
3.Use lunch breaks to observe markets- the best way to trade better is to be engaged in the process.It could mean using your “gossip time ” lol ” what are we doing this weekend time” to open your laptop or smartphone and learn about the markets you trade rather than going through the same routine that you probably tired of anyway/
4.Make sacrifices – Everyone will need to make all sorts of sacrifices to make trading work.For some its the time with family,some it might be friends and going out and for some it might be health then for a select few, like myself ,it might be all of the above .You just need to know is that mastering trading takes time doing it while you have a job is the best for me the midnight hours were always the best or simply waking up 2 hours before normal time which was 6 am just to get some trades in while my mind is fresh .
Bonus-The last one has to be quitting your job,when the time is right and your profits are stacked up and you have something else to keep you busy then you can trade full time without stress
