I came accross a book that you guys might have heard or read in the past. I found it really helpfully in controlling my emotions and be objective while trading. In my experience I got to the point of frustration that I KNOW WHAT I NEED TO DO, But WHY Can't I DO IT!! The thought process of separating YOURSELF from your MIND (the monkey) helped me alot. I felt like I could concentrate better on the execution (My lacking point). Also, I was able to stop constantly fluctuate between FEAR and GREED. I was little effected by my PnL. On top of all the benefits I was able to enjoy trading a whole lot more. (and less keyboards to stock up on !!) http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/The_Power_of_Now POWER of NOW !! Hope this helps.
