When does trading become over-trading?
Some trading days are easy, but we all have days where we just have to grind it out.
Our studies show that the frequency of trades taken in a day can really impact your returns.
If you have days where you take a lot of trades, make sure you understand if you are having a positive or negative impact on your trading.
Emotional states change as we trade more, so we are invariably carrying a lot of emotional baggage into our afternoon trades.
If you measure and see this habit in your trades, you can take steps to rectify it.
Many professional traders go to the gym at lunchtime. They return to the afternoon session as if it is a brand new trading session, leaving the highs and lows of the morning behind.
