Hello, I' m now a profitable trader, living off trading, which faces serious boredom issues. My kind of trading cannot be automated and is really repetitive, but it must be done, of course... I'm the kind of guy who must be intellectually occupied all the time, instead of what I can go quite depressed and weird... I've spent the whole last week worrying about something( girlfriend's health ) that I would never have if I was occupied... As bizarre as it sounds, happiness didn't came with profitability in my case, or not in the extent I would have thought... I can recall being really enthusiastic and happy studying the market and not making a penny at the beginning...happiness is in research of happiness for me... I'm not making large sums of money, but I'm at an intermediate level where I live well and don't want to work harder, evolve in trading, at least temporarily. I want other things... For those who have faced it,how did you deal with that? For the moment, I try to always read something ( forums, novels, mags) in front of the computer but sometimes it doesn't work...What can I do? BYE.
