I just recently couple of months ago fully automated all of my trading. It took me a few weeks to get use to it, but now I feel it is a very liberating experience. I have noticed the following: 1) Reduction in Stress. 2) Freeing up more time to do research, work on myself. 3) I find I am much more disciplined with automated trading. My constant life long need to 'beat' my strategies is greatly reduced. As someone said watching the market during the day is like playing the slot machine, you end up feeding it all day long. Automation seems to help break that habit, in my case. I was wondering if others who use automation have had similar results? PS. when I say I automated all of my trading, I mean that the strategies have been programed in and the computer executes the orders unattended.
