DON’T Look at a screen all day!

Stop Watching Your Trades All Day

Have you ever found yourself glued to your screens, watching every tick of the market, and feeling the stress levels rise?

If so, you’re not alone.

You might find it productive and what is essential but it’s actually a more dangerous habit than you might think.

Watching every tick will rise your cortisol (stress) levels.

It might cause you to take impusive trades.

And you might adjust your trading levels when you shouldn’t.

And so in this piece of writing I’m going to show you why you should stop watching the screens all day.

The Cortisol Rush

Every time you check the market and see a fluctuation in your trades, your body responds by releasing cortisol, the stress hormone.

While cortisol is useful in fight-or-flight situations, in trading, it can lead to quick and unnecessary decisions.

And you’ll end up taking more lower probability trades than you should.

It’s time you lead a more balanced, stress free and calmer trading life.


Distraction from Higher Priorities

Trading should be a part of your life, not the entirety of it.

You shouldn’t obsess over every market movement.

Your job is to wait for high probability trades to line up, take them and then let the market take over.

Also, you the trick is to focus on other vital aspects of your life like: family, health, and even your full-time job if you have one.

Balance is key to sustain success in both your personal and professional life.

Now there are a number of benefits when NOT looking at a screen all day.

Benefit #1: Beter Decision-Making

When you’re not constantly reacting to market volatility, you have more time to analyze your strategies and make more informed decisions.

This way you can priortise in what is absolutely needed to act on when you do trade.

Benefit #2: Improved Quality of Life

Life is NOT just about trading.

So once you’ve taken a trade and reduced your screen time, you will be able to free up time for other activities that enhance your well-being.

I’m talking about things like exercise, hobbies, and time with loved ones.

A well-rounded life supports better mental health, which in turn can improve your trading performance.

Benefit #3: Increased Productivity

Believe it or not, spending less time watching your trades can actually make you more productive.

You will also have the right amount of energy and focus to set specific times to check the market and stick to a trading plan.

Time management is everything.

This disciplined approach can lead to better outcomes than erratic, all-day monitoring.

So how do you use your time for when you trade?


ACTION #1: Use Alerts Wisely:

Analyse and set up your trading alerts for specific price levels, when your strategy lines up or wait for my trading ideas where I do all the work for you.

Let technology or a mentor help you t so you don’t have to watch the markets to do the monitoring for you.

ACTION #2: Create a Balanced Schedule:

You should also take the time to Incorporate other important activities into your daily schedule.

This could include exercise, reading, or spending time on a hobby.

It’s all about creating a healthy work-life balance.


ACTION #3: Check and review your Trading Plan Regularly:

When you review and check your trading track record and journal, this will tell you whether you’re on the right path to growing your portfolio.

You need to base this time on looking at the stats, metrics, seeing the mistakes you made.

And where you are with your trading in total.

This only requires you to do this once a week or so.

And it will reduce the time you think you need to constantly check the markets.


As I always like to say sometimes less is more.

Drop the screen time and focus on what is important.

Lower your stress and keep to a well-balanced trading life.

This way you’ll be able to integrate trading in a more effective and profitable way.
