Actual trade execution is only 15-30mins a day, but data processing, analysis, and operations adds on another hour or so. Then sometimes I am just watching, going through "what-if" scenarios in my head about what I would do if price does X, Y or Z. I have a variety of strategies I trade, some auto/algo, some manual but systematic, so it just depends on which ones are setting up nicely at the time. I would say usually no more than a total of 2-3 hours a day. Sometimes if I'm dealing with an options position on or near options expiration that can take up more of my time if I'm trying to get my position to expire worthless, I will spend more time watching and babysitting it.
