Had to go down to trading at 2 per pip and I was up at 6:00am EVERY morning going through charts etc. and working through 'til 9 or 10 in the evening 6 days a week. I was 'full time' at that stage, so I had to succeed ~ it was never an option to fail.

In comparison, I find the 'working day' is now a lot more relaxed ~ I just check the screens every 2 or 3 mins waiting for my set-up to appear, and when it does ~ in I go.

Hope that helps.
