Taking breaks

Another good day with a profit of €189. I won't be trading tomorrow as I'm at a Christening so that ends a fantastic week.

The 'Wall Street' character, Gordon Gekko famously said that 'Lunch is for wimps' but in all seriousness, it's important to take breaks from trading. You can get so sucked in and spend hours staring at the screen. Performance suffers if you don't take breaks so I took 20 minutes out today during trading and walked the dog.

It's also important to keep hydrated and I always have plenty of water beside me when trading.

I may get to trade on Monday - not sure yet. Off out tonight for a much needed few pints!
