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

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


I'm just a simple man trading a simple plan.
