In order to stop over trading and get consistent, I started using goals. Basically if I'm down X amount from the high water mark of the day - I shut down. And if I'm up X for the day - I shut down. This way I: - Stop overtrading. - Limit Losses. - Protect Gains. - Improve Consistency. - Save Time. - Avoid the aggravation of being up X by 10:30 then trade the whole day and end up being up less than X - what a waste of time and effort. By avoiding this aggravation, I go into the next day with confidence. The problem is that I've been hitting my profit targets early in the day. And I have nothing else to do the rest of the day. Maybe I'm just experiencing withdrawal symptoms from over trading and being hooked to the screen the whole day for so many months.
