If you are trading the markets everyday you understand that they really never sleep. If a trader wanted to make money trading stocks 24 hours a day he or she actually could do it. Just think about it, if you live in New York City then the Asian markets open around 8:00 pm ET. Eight hours later, the European markets open around 4:00 am ET. So you can trade stocks in the Asian markets and roll right into the European markets. Next up, we have the North American markets starting up at 9:30 am ET. Basically, a trader can go around the clock and really never stop. These days you even have crypto currencies trading on the weekend so a trader could be involved in the markets 24 hours a day all week long.
These days I speak with traders who will actually try to trade around the clock. The problem with this is that in order to really excel in this business your mind needs to be fresh and rested. This is a business that requires all of the brain cells working at full capacity. Remember, coffee and energy drinks can only last so long. Traders need some sleep and often a well deserved vacation. I remember years ago someone asked if I could help them trade the Asian markets. After a couple of weeks of being up for so many hours I really couldn’t continue to work with that trader any longer. I was just too tired the next day when the U.S. markets opened and I could not focus on my business. The bottom line, make sure you get adequate sleep each and every night. These days I require about 7 to 8 hours of sleep a night, but this can vary depending on the individual. The amount of sleep you need is something that you can decide for yourself, but make sure you get some solid sleep every single night.
Some of the benefits of sleep which will directly affect your performance as a trader include:
1. Improved concentration and productivity
2. Improved immune function
3. Better mood
4. Healthier heart
5. Better athletic performance
6. Steadier blood sugar
7. Better weight control
As a smart trader who’s main goal is to make money in one of the most competitive arenas in the world, you must understand you body. Becoming aware of what allows you to operate at your best and maintain peak performance is key. Take your health serious as it is one of your most powerful tools in achieving great success!
