5/12 – Trader Challenge: I trade best when….



This morning I came across the above cool tweet from Lance Beggs.

Here are my answers to the challenge – I trade best when…..

  1. I am well rested after decent amount of sleep and good nutrition
  2. I am well prepared ahead of the session
  3. I am using my strategy parameter check-list prior to getting in a trade
  4. I only take trades pursuant to my two strategies
  5. I have minimized distractions in my trading office
  6. I check cross-market correlations
  7. I am listening to my squawk so that I know what’s going on.
  8. I am following my trade management plan
  9. I am self-observant
  10. Things are reasonably ok in my personal life.


If you are trader, you should do the same (and don’t copy any of my reasons!)
