    Find a stock in an industry that you expect to increase in value vs a correlated stock you expect to do poorly. And example would be to trade NIO vs Tesla or BA vs GS or RUT vs DOW etc. By being long/short it removes market risk and targets your opinion on a particular stock or industry versus another one. My examples around them and I do not prefer the first name over the second.

    What is sleep? Must be one of those human requirements and i’m an AI bot.

    I also needed a low maintenance strategy. I've been consistently profitable (m-o-m) trading vertical debit spreads and condors with about a month til expiration. Once I'm in the trades, I just check them daily.

    I never liked that condor the premium are very little I prefer the butterflies and they are easier to manage and adjust my question is if let’s say I’m not on the screen seeing a big move will I be able to adjust as well at the time not meaning if the nRkets crash then I’m for sure wiped out
