    What are your thoughts?

    I tend to have the news on the TV on but since I trade forex on those weird hours i find music soothing to fill the void of quitness and to allow me to focus better

    I find Jazz or Classical music enhances my concentration. I only have CNBC on for a few minutes at the beginning of the trading day and during economic number releases.
  3. Yeah, I use Wagner -- scares the hell
    out of the shorts!

    80's pop
  5. punk rock.....diesel boy, guttermouth and the satanic surfers are a few of my trading favorites
  6. Enya, Slayer, The Carpenters, Cannibal Corpse

    Trance music. :D

    Nothing like a bit of PVD, Armin Van Buuren or Ferry Corsten to listen to while studying or trading. Though for me, trading right now = watching/analyzing the markets while monitoring position trades.

    if the market's slow i'll listen to jazz or pop but when we are in a mean downtrend and i'm trading volatility names i like to listen to black sabbath, guns & roses, or blue oyster cult.
