No signals the last two sessions. So plenty of video.
I read Gladwell's book Outliers and the discussion around the 10,000 hours required to achieve expert status is certainly important to traders.
I have been watching charts full time for about 5 years now. So with 52 weeks in a year minus about 10 holiday days that's roughly 250 days a year. At 5.5 hours per day that puts me around 6875 hours of screen time.
3125 more hours and I'll be an expert.
If the 10,000 hours holds true for trading, and I see no reason why it wouldn't, then it does explain the large failure rate in this business.
Traders simply run out of capital before they get the 10,000 hours in.
Sim trade for 10 years?
No but capital preservation is certainly the most important aspect of this business.
