Today, I started the day in disarray all because I watched too much TV (ROME from HBO, WOWOWE from The Filipino Channel ) last night and I was not able to do my nightly routine to scan the charts and prepare my trade plan for the day. I decided in the morning to just jump head first and trade my way out. I took 3 positions that can be graded as B- trade setups. By the time better setups came out of the scan, I was busy defending my positions instead of pouncing on these new opportunities.
To make matters worse, I had to switch to mobile platform ( fancy term for can't stop trading but had to do more important things than trading) by midday. Whoever said that you can trade from a far away beach with just your mobile device while watching the babes walk by and a cool pinacolada by your side must be full of B.S. Trading from TREO or motoQ is so uncomfortable, my fingers hurt and it felt like I get the cramps once in a while. To add insult to injury, I kept hitting some other keys from this QWERTY keyboard plus the transmission is still slow.
