Trading and Exercise

Oscar Reed started this thread Not trading full time at the moment, but have in the past.

Currently working in the office(accounts) 3 days per week and 3 days in the stores area of a manufacturer company.

With the fitbit reading I'm doing under 2,500 steps in this period for the office.
But in the stores area doing 10,000 to 12,000 steps in this period.
Store over 10.5 hours and office over 9.5 hours.

If you sitting there over a long period trading and also have poor food and drink choices.
It's not going to help the mid range area and the ability to focus.
Keep a glass water next to the PC.
Buy a resistance band or kettle weight and do a 5 minute or shorter workout.
The kettle weight is a great short cardio workout.
Plus walk everyday or run if that is your thing.

No guarantees but hopefully exercise can help make you a better trader.

Show your Hand Mr Market

Oscar Reed started this thread Talking ASX only.

Seem to get strong defined levels(S/R) after Monday and Tuesday morning session.
Gives you something to work with for rest of the week.
Just need the patience not to jump the gun too early at the start of the week.
Also not saying that I won’t trade the early part of the week.
Stop now.

Just when you think you got this game mastered.

Oscar Reed started this thread Given too much time to make decisions this week.

Just take it or manage it simple.
Weekly reporting helping, but iress needs a lot of help.

US rally on Tuesday undone or did not help both accounts.
Managed to control Saxo, but not Iress.

3K Account

Oscar Reed started this thread Looking at setting up a 3k account to run along side the other two accounts.
Account will also be a swing account because of working and time restraints.
Will update when set up.

CMC Markets

Oscar Reed started this thread Gone with CMC, they allow fraction orders.
There charts don't look great, but deal tickets seem okay.
Don't think that you can place orders on the chart, shame.
Would have rather gone with IG but order size is a bit big for 3k.
If scalping would have been fine, but with this swing trading CMC seemed the go.
Also had a look at Axi trader and IC markets.
Will update more after using.

3 Accounts

Oscar Reed started this thread Third account added and running.
Funny yesterday was away from the markets for about 6 hours during the day.
And it was hard to know where to look first when back at the PC.
Time and experience will help.
Have also added CAC 40 to the mix.
And removed NZD/USD and GBPUSD.



Think once in the rhythm should take 10/15 mins.
Only need to check open and pending orders and close or adjust.
Might need to spend more time on big moving days.

It's just getting into the flow.
