When I first started out with futures 5 years ago it was 8-10 hours a day learning, failing, learning, repeat.

Now I usually reach my target in 1-2 hours unless I get myself in a pickle and have to fight my way out for the rest of the day. Could trade more and make more although I follow the adage that if you try to pick too may cherries you are bound to pick more rotten ones.

But having most of the day free to do as I please is more valuable to me than money and is the main reason I got into trading.
