What do you do to keep your mind sharp and your plan on track when the markets are trading slow(volume)?
For example this past Friday, mainly the afternoon seemed to be slow, I lost focus and made some undisciplined trades and lost because of it.
I don't enter positions during slow, stagnant and choppy periods. I'll either continue to watch the markets or turn the computer off.
This past Friday afternoon, market was sideways slightly negative until 1PM Eastern when Goldman Sachs made very negative comments about motherboard sales in Asia, and the whole market dropped for rest of the afternoon. Good shorting opportunities in tech stocks for rest of the afternoon.
