What's up guys? I talk a lot about the importance of creating a routine for each portion of the trading day, including weekends. In fact, in my Laws of Trading blog post, I arrogantly stated that,
"A structured daily routine (a.k.a. process) is the single greatest predictor of a successful trader. Don't focus only on trading successes & failures or swings in P&L. Focus your energy on setting a clear routine for each portion of the day, as well as weekends, and adapt that routine as you evolve as a trader."
So in this post, I wanted to give you a better idea of what I meant and what my daily and weekly routine looks like. This is just my routine and hopefully it you gives you some ideas to work with in order to craft and refine your own routine to tackle the stock market.
