Things No One Tells You About Becoming a Trader

Posted on Jul 19 2017 - 2:29pm by Sharpe Trade

Well, it seems that while I was slumbering away this morning … the Q’s decided to rip higher along with the S&P 500 Index.  Yes, we’re still long the Q’s from months back.  That particular process is up over 16% this year and is part of the ‘major indices’ position process we mentioned yesterday.

Back up for a moment.  Slumbering away Dan?

Yeah .. well … there are things about being a self-directed retail trader that no one really ever tells you.  For instance …

Your sleep schedule will more than likely be completely screwed up.  I feel asleep yesterday around 6:50 PM EST.  I woke up at 9:15 PM.  I was then awake until the London Open at 3:00 AM EST.  Feel asleep around 4.  Woke up around 10:30 for 15 minutes.  And then just woke up about 20 minutes ago.  And I am by no means alone in this.  Most other at-home traders I talk with have such screwy sleep patterns.  It’s pretty ‘across-the-board’ in the profession.  At first, it seems pretty glamorous; as if you’re leading the life of a rock-star.  But you need to keep a handle on it, somehow; because if you’re not careful it will completely screw with your ability to function and your health.  

Just one of the many, many things … that no one tells you about becoming a successful, consistently profitable trader.

Anyways … yes … still long the Q’s.  Still rocketing higher.

Don’t forget that the ‘Reconstructed Sharpe Report‘ is now only $15.00 per month, from now, into perpetuity.  At the same time, the ‘Short-Term Trading Course’ has a promotion that is ongoing for those interested …
