Just wondering how many hours a day people on here do stuff related to trading. More so the people who are at the more elote side of trading or who want to be. Personally I get the feeling that if I dont read a book or look over my charts that im a failure or my dreams will crumble or im not doing enough. I work every day since recently and ive been deeply effected by anxiety recently. To the point where I felt like I was losing my sanity. Im getting that under control but the fact that I also got kicked out of uni makes me feel that I have to develop my knowledge of trading at the rate that my peers are fmgetting educated in their fields. I fear this sense of urgency is detrimental to my trading. Ive got a diary and have picked a few stocks, got a hypothesis of the general market conditions and have set predictions for what I think will happen. More like paper trading. For example would jesse livermore hone in on a stock, strike then let it be or was he constantpy in a manic depressive state. I have this attitude that I cant succeed in this field unless im pushing my self to spens 1 hours a day thinking about trading. Any thoughts on this?
