Something for you to think about.
Does working out in gym help your trading? Some people say regular exercise will help trader staying sharp. Well, I think it should be true. I don’t know.
But, the weight training teaches trading. How many times when you hit the gym, watching those big guys training then try to put on another 20 pounds on weight for your bench press? I know watching them is inspirational. "Man, you gotta push yourself to get a bigger muscle." Absolutely. But, what is your limit? A little Asian man like me, trying to train like a huge Caucasian is a absolute stupid move. Most of time, you will tear your muscle, injured your arms, and cause you to stay at home for 3 weeks, and can’t even lift up a 5-pound shopping bag.
Try to relate this to your trading. What would you do in gym?
