    Red face Falling asleep is the enemy. I missed this easy move!

    EURO took a hit an hour ago, and I missed the move due to sleep.

    But if you take a look, it was really quite a simple short set up. I'm trying out the new FX Trend Bias tool which really is quite effective. Along with our other strength indicators, it really does indicate that price is about to go in the direction it indicates.

    It really is, because there's these trade setups that happen and you only have a small window to enter the trade. Every time I miss that window, I am always tempted to get in the trade against my own rules with the hope of the pair going further in the same direction, almost always at my own peril.

    That's the name of the game, you have to be at the computer to catch the trades you want, unless you have automated your plan accordingly.

    You could always hire migrant workers to watch your computer screens while you sleep. But then will your stuff be there when you wake up?

    I have the same problem, when I run to the kitchen to make a bite to eat and a pot of coffee. I finally got the wifi setup at home, so i now have a laptop in the kitchen.

    Let's not advocate the usage of mind altering substances whilst trading, you must have a clear mind to trade effectively.
