I have been having better luck turning CNBC off during the day. I am finding that it distracts my attention and slows me down. The information on CNBC is often always late and sometimes plain bad. It can poison your decision making. One doesnt need the news to see what is happening with their stocks. The traditional bond/stock market indicators will tell a trader all they need to know about what is going on. Jim Cramer and his buddies are just noise that take you away from the mission of making money.
