I day trade USA futures full time. I want to get some insight from only full time traders who trade the US markets about how they manage their schedules. That has been the most challenging thing for me personally because of the time zone issue. US markets open here (Syd, Melb time) 11:30pm - 1:30am (depending on standard or daylight time) so trying to manage sleep/peak state for optimal trading overnight is a challenge.
I've tried many schedules and timings from full 5-7hr sleep patterns to bi-phasic sleep cycles whilst incorporating diet and exercise into my days. I've done a tonne of research on sleep, etc. So I have a reasonably good routine set in place now but there are days where inability to get that needed sleep becomes frustrating (which is natural as I'm fighting my body's circadian rhythm to stay up at night0
So insights into what works for you and what doesn't to manage sleep / peak state?
Oh and moving to US not an option. my boss (wife) said no go
