So, I've been at this trading game for quite some time now... yet to be consistently profitable. Within the past 6 months I have come to realize (finally!), that my trading will never again rely on lagging indicators. I am in the process of studying price action, support and resistance, etc. While thinking about my daily routine, I realized that much of the time that I should be fully engulfed in watching the charts and movement of price, I'm reading message boards, chatting on Skype, watching youtube videos, and perusing the net. I think this could be a major reason why it has taken me so long to become successful (still in the process 6 years later). Although I spend hours doing "research" as I call it, I'm not focusing on the most important aspects. I would like to hear from others who have taken the journey to success and wonder what they did to get there. Did you guys stare at your charts and analyze all the movement real-time for the entire trading session? Did you have to put all your net surfing on the back-burner, because you found it to be a distraction? Basically it comes down to this. Although I've convinced myself that I'm learning and studying, I have yet to fully emerse myself in price action for a long period of time. This could be my downfall until now. How is one supposed to learn price action if they glance at the chart every couple of minutes or so? Any advice or opinions would be appreciate.
