A helpful note on efficiency for inexperienced intra-day traders

December 14, 2011

FXTrader Paul, Trading Performance

Hey traders,

Here’s a blog piece by Tony Schwartz on the Harvard Business Review Blog Network on how to accomplish more by doing less.

Not surprisingly if you sit at your desk from 7am till 10pm you are likely to reach a point of diminishing returns more quickly than if you work in 90 minute bursts followed by a replenishment activity.


Now I agree with the readers comments that you’re unlikely to get away with taking a nap at your desk in a corporate environment however as traders we can set our own schedules and trying to sit at your desk all day doing intra-day trading is unlikely to be a profitable pursuit financially, mentally, emotionally or physically.

Hope you enjoy,
