splasher started this thread Maybe my post title was wrong. Boredom is a more accurate description and the feeling of stress i described is probably better described as energy with no immediate purpose.
On reflection stress is worrying about events you have no control over like ill health. The stress in markets comes from having no control or more accurately no plan.
I wish i could say that never happens but i do sometimes lose sight of my trading plan and then stress ensues.......fortunately a lot less than it used to.
So the problem is boredom which is easier to deal with as many of you have said by altering timescales.

I think the problem probably is that my natural style is to swing trade (which i take to be trades put on with a timescale of several days) but sitting in front of my pc gives me itchy fingers and i try and turn swing trades into day trades and thus instant profits and gratification

Not sure of solution as i like to know what is going on at all times in the market in case of any short term opportunities, but clearly need to seperate this from my swing trades

I do use 2 seperate accounts

Hmm more thought needed i think
