Thanks: 799 given,
Using the sports analogy and deliberate practice model.
Any drills a trader could isolate or work on to improve their trading? Like the batting cage, shootings dry fire, golf putting, punching mitts, shadow boxing, etc.
building that inuition and subconscious competence.
I heard you and Dionysous mention DOM reading at speed(I've yet to use the DOM, and will eventually).
Risk seems to be the largest issue for most people, retail or prop. Maybe the marble game 2-3x week. And. Or the market at speed in replay while identifing risk or looking for patterns?
Homework levels seem to be the other ...maybe HYPO1,2,3 multiple markets per day then check back. Relating price action to Hvns and Lvns.
Maybe a mental though process.
How would you structure such? Frequency? Intensity? Duration?
I am highly impressed by Stage5 commitment to helping their traders and am going to contact them this week because of it.

Looooong time twitter follower, I am having trouble with a standardized date (to use across the board) to roll Treasury futures because the pace of the roll is always different and for instance during this roll, some treasuries had a later or slower roll while others had an earlier or quicker one. The indexes are much easier with with the second Thursday of H,M,U and Z, unless I am missing something.
Thank you, I should have added I am trying to use a specific date so the data will be adjusted, this is a feature you have to build into continuous charts in TT, which is what I am asking for, it is built in to IQ Feed.

I am not Morad, but there is more to a data feed than unfiltered data. For example, breadth tickers, historical data, continuous contracts, etc.
