Hi, Would appreciate hearing the thoughts of some seasoned intraday traders as I myself have little direct experience with trading. I have a mind to stare at the orderbook of a particular product (eurostoxx 50 as it goes) for a few hours each day, for 1 year. My theory is this: if I ignore charts and traditional technical analysis, and focus exclusively on the orderbook (taking no action during major fundamental number releases), I will eventually develop a "feel" for short-term market direction - possibly by recognizing when the big players are at work and following in-step behind them. My reasons for ignoring traditional technical analysis is deep rooted and will never change, so please just take the approach proposed above as set in stone. Is this a sound investment for 1000 hours? Thanks a lot in advance.
