How do traders pass their time during market hours when they don't have any position? Some ideas pls. Thanks
Perhaps by looking for a trade
You could focus on fitness… Do simple exercises like push up, some stretches. You can also read books(trading or non trading). I am a discretionary trader, like Karthik suggests to look for an opportunity, thats what I do during market hours. Some one with a mechanical strategy can give you the best answer. Good question though
You can visit tradingqna.com or moneycontrol mmb… You can really pass your time that way. Not the best option though.
i personally fill up my trade journal, trade logs and market structure journal if there is some time between trades…
How about learning Spanish, Chinese etc.
A day at Barclays Trading Firm in New York.
They eat burgers, read some books, analyze a company like its prospects of growth and balance sheet and a few of the time they speak to their wives/girlfriends over the phone.
haha good one… but what if strategy is coded and i get a sound alert when opportunity arises?
Well utilize the time to build another strategy
thanks karunakumari for the suggestions… fitness really is important and i like what you have suggested. would be grateful if others can share what they do when they don’t have any position and are free during market hrs. thanks
