Habits and hobbies of the work at home trader


I'm curious what hobbies other traders pursue while they're watching the market or trading at home. Also post some off-hour hobbies, related interests, superstitions, music listened, or mid-trade habits if any. So, If your reading this please post. Don't be discouraged by how eccentric your habits or hobbies may be!

Thank you

running a forum

Mike

Due to time constraints, please do not PM me if your question can be resolved or answered on the forum.

Need help?
1) Stop changing things. No new indicators, charts, or methods. Be consistent with what is in front of you first.
2) Start a journal and post to it daily with the trades you made to show your strengths and weaknesses.
3) Set goals for yourself to reach daily. Make them about how you trade, not how much money you make.
4) Accept responsibility for your actions. Stop looking elsewhere to explain away poor performance.
5) Where to start as a trader? Watch this webinar and read this thread for hundreds of questions and answers.
6)
Help using the forum? Watch this video to learn general tips on using the site.

Personally, I like to drink a couple cups of flavored coffee(hazel nut cinnamon) and eat a little something before I even think about the market. I like to wait a good 20 minutes or so watching the market to get a good feel / zen like state going on. I usually review all time frames from daily down to minute and check the economic calendar before trading. I put on some Pandora, usually classical/80s music to set up an upbeat mood. If the market is too erratic or lackluster i'll play some league of legends. I read popular news and science articles on digg, newspulse, yahoo or other sites to waste time.

Hi,

I play Battlefield Bad Company2.

It reminds me that the market can kill you if you are not careful.

I don't anything ... and I don't even start that until after lunch.

I take a lot of naps.

I eat Cheeze Whiz right out of the can and share it with the dog
