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.

I did the free one, which is kinda crap because they don't give you the BPI score. But what's interesting is I couldn't get past level 10 on the box thing. I kept nailing the 9 level over and over again, but as soon as there were 10 it seemed like I could only remember about half of them. You would think I could remember 8 or 9 of them, but I couldn't, it was like memory overload. I was working on half my normal sleep and no coffee, so it will be interesting to see how it changes tomorrow on a full night's sleep and coffee. Maybe I'll do a full night's sleep and no coffee tomorrow and then next day do full night's sleep and coffee and see how that compares.

LOL, I forgot all about this until BM's post. I guess I do need Luminosity.

Lumosity is really a great challenge!
I started some months ago and had several "highlights" during the games.
They are becoming more and more handy - and the approach to train the grey cells
seems gaminglike easy.

Even though a great progress is to see over the time there are some drawbacks
in the game's nature:

1) if you are not speaking english by mother tongue you get
a) problems with bird name guessing which diminishes your extra points
b) problems with quick word findings in "Word Bubbles" or "Word Bubbles rising"

2) if you have a lame internet - the speed games are working so slow that you never
can reach certain levels... These are very important to raise your BPI.

As a conclusion - the brain training skills are getting better - and the concentration
needed to trade is quite higher.
I left university long time ago: this fun game is really recommended for the daily brain training.
Since one can compare the BPI within the group of same age - the results are quickly to see.

The best of all is that new games arrive and make it more interesting to play all levels.

Congrats

BPI looks great! Have seen one better result here only from dead @ LORNZ

To see a comparison with the same age group - the comparison chart is revealing more

I have subscribed for 2 years, i'm really thinking of getting the life membership next.
I find it very helpful for a lot of reasons.
Playing my daily games/training is part of my morning routine.
I don't even turn on my charts until I'm done my training session, or if I skip it I'm not turning on my trading platform at all

Thanks for your input, I'm considering a 2 year subscription as well.

And I like the idea of making the training a daily routine before I start trading, this might help building up more discipline.

very true: younger means higher, older means lower BPI
