I've heard a lot of people say that trading is hard work. I'm relatively new to the industry but from my two years of trading experience I would have to agree. I was wondering what makes trading hard work. Is it the preparation before the market opens? If so what type of preparation do you traders undertake? Is it the research involved after the market closes? I just feel that I'm missing something. A piece to my own personal trading puzzle if you will. I guess I'm just looking to get better at what I do. Any input/opinions would be greatly appreciated. Cheers!
