This is an open-ended poll. If you trade the markets intraday and must keep your eye on the screen at almost all times, how do you, personally, maintain the required focus throughout trading hours? Do you have any methods for regulating the ebbs and flows of your attention span? I occasionally find myself missing setups because my mind was elsewhere (watching the news, reading ET, etc.). It doesn't happen often and is a not a big issue for me, but it is annoying nonetheless. However, watching the charts exclusively to the exclusion of all else is rather a challenge. Suitable music seems to help, but not always. I probably just need a breather or a vacation. Even so, I would still like to know how you folks deal with it.
