Thanks lindsay for your kind sharing so that we can safeguard trading at the wrong time segment.

To make my life a little easier, will you provide me with the hours you trade in your time zone (Sydney, Australia) so that I can find out the corresponding EST hours. Thank you!

Beth

Hi Beth
My ideal trading hours are
1900hrs- 2200hrs and then
0030hrs -0330hrs

My local time is 16 hours ahead of EST ( GMT+11) [EST is GMT -5 as no daylight savings]

So EST time that would be

0300hrs- 0600hrs and
0830hrs-1130hrs

Of course this isnt to say that you cant trade from EST 0600 to 0830 its just about trading when the liquidity hits the market which tends to liven things up a bit.

Good luck with your new approach.

My trillion thanks Lindsay for answering my sos request so promptly! Smile. You even save my finding out the corresponding EST hours .. haha ..

The suggested hours are now on my VI book. Will go with the second session unless I become a night owl in the future.

I almost forgot to provide a quick update on my health. I took an ultra-sound test on my petite heart per my Dr's suggestion. The results do not indicate any major health issues - good news! Having said that, I started modifying my lifestyle. For example, cushioning 1-2 short exercising sessions most of the days, a few hours away from the computers in the afternoon, and watching some relaxing episodes at night (this is very effective in safeguarding dreams on trading charts I've found). When I am getting some warnings from my body, say heartburn and headache, it's time to pause and re-group.

Soooo, I'm certified to be "healthy" again though I am currently fighting a cold (running nose, soar throat and occasional coughing) this weekend.

Beth, our profession is stressful and stress can lead to many maladies. Manage stress and better health will follow.

Do you think birds worry about getting food or shelter?

hi Beth ,
I have found this chart very helpful , you can print it out and hang it close to your computer
NB: The most active trading times are when 2 or more equity markets are open.

Thanks Hard 8 for your kind reminder. Yes, to trade at ease is what I am working on though I don't mind to be fed with good ideas from experienced members! Smile.
