“What if you didn’t watch the markets all that closely…”

‘If you spend enough time in a barbershop, sooner or later you will decide that you need a haircut, even if you are bald.’ Warren Buffet. A common habit among day traders is to sit in front of the monitor and follow the markets and the positions closely. According to experts, it is not the lack of knowledge that hurdles most participants, but its application in the real world. Boredom can easily lead to overtrading or closing positions that are doing perfectly well. Bottom line: Instead of watching every tick in the monitor, how about doing something interesting in between; from reading to exercising, whatever floats your boat?
