Any ideas on how to get decent sleep - or a low hour sleeping strategy?

I think you should ask Mike (although I am sure he would like to sleep more). Sleeping is a vital function, reducing the daily needed hours of sleep can cause damage to your body (as prooved by the attached studies) and your decision making process. If your are succesful with the existing sleeping situation It doesn't mean that you'll be with less rest. I am of course speaking for myself, let us know your future feedbacks.

Perhaps a personal experience of mine may be of interest to this tread. In early 2000, and my 20th year as a NASDAQ market maker at one of the most active and prestigious houses on wall street, I wore a Pulsar Heart Rate Monitor with chest belt to work. For those of you that remember this period in the equity markets....it was nothing less than insane. At the time I was a recreational runner of 30 miles a week. One day it dawned on me that I should wear the HRM to work check my HR at the opening. Openings were simply crazy and I was very interested to see the results of this experiment. But to my surprise and astonishment THERE WAS NO NOTICEABLE CHANGE IN MY HR. I could not believe my eyes.

Thanks for your contribution, in the last 2 days I have been recording my pulse before during and after a trade. I am coming to some conclusions, but I guess it'is too early to take conclusions and I want to increase the spectrum of casualties.

Thanks for the info - should have just started a thread on the topic - I know it can't last.

This is also off topic, but not having anything else helpful to say - I've heard that negative ions in the air are conducive to less risky decision making. I found this out reading about a military camouflage manufacturer that actually patented a camo suit with a tube releasing neg. ions at the collar. They used research which included stock traders behavior in different levels of neg. ion air - but I can't speak to it's accuracy.

I plan on getting an neg. ion generator for the office to see if it helps/hurts and will start a thread if there's anything worth talking about.

@redratsal, I'm eagerly awaiting your data. Anything new you can report yet?

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)

I am collecting data since the 25th of May, I haven't looked at the output yet I think it's too early to take any conclusions, I would like to take measures during my sleep as well.

Heart rate monitors don't measure Heart Rate Variability

Redratsal - just wanted to let you know that what you're measuring with the heart rate monitor is not HRV but simply variations in your heart rate. The terminology sucks - a heart rate monitor is going to tell you how many beats per minute your heart is beating. HRV monitors (like heartmath's) measure the beat-to-beat variability - in other words the variation in how long a beat takes on a beat-to-beat basis.

Certainly variations in heart rate could be interesting to monitor during trading - but they will not give you the same insight into your HRV. There's a whole field of neurocardiology that is fascinating - studying how the neural circuits in your heart are similar to your cortex and how heart neurons can secrete the same growth factors, neurotransmitters, etc that brain neurons can.

follow-up - some HR monitors do measure HRV

Redratsal - I did a bit more reading and it turns out some newer HR monitors can actually measure HRV. I couldn't figure out how to tell which ones did or did not on (for instance) Polar's website but some certainly can. So I apologize for the erroneous info - hopefully the one you have does in fact measure HRV.

Please do let us know what you find out if you're measuring your HRV's and how you think it benefits you.

thanks!
