I have a child that lives in California and visiting her is is great. I'm usually done trading by 9 am PST, eat breakfast and hit the links. Be your own person & don't CONFORM for anyone. Trading in California takes a little discipline just like learning to trade. It's worth it if you like the area and are willing to put for the effort. If not you will whine about it . . . mmmmmmm . . . . just like trading anywhere.
