    Ignorance of optimal sleep wrecked me during the first couple CFA exams. Turns out it's a lot easier for me to walk away from the charts than put down an exam book. Live and learn.

      Try trading crypto. 5-10-20 percent in an hour or less and trades 24/7. Get wrecked while you sleep.

    Loads of relevant ideas here. I'm surprised how few people put serious time into using the mental game as their edge. People pay big dollars for data, research, technology, math, smart staff, algos, Bloomberg, etc., but very few invest the money and time to improve their mental game. There is no magic pill; it takes great effort, courage and consistency to make changes to how you operate and think.

    The Algo, poker and revenge trading bits were best. I also liked the idea of emotional parameters. Perhaps an emoji range would be helpful with guidance associated with each, for example ๐Ÿค‘๐Ÿคฃ๐Ÿ˜†๐Ÿ˜๐Ÿ˜ƒ๐Ÿ˜€๐Ÿ˜‡๐Ÿ˜Ž๐Ÿค“๐Ÿ™‚โ˜บ๏ธ๐Ÿ˜๐Ÿ˜•๐Ÿ™โ˜น๏ธ๐Ÿ˜Ÿ๐Ÿ˜”๐Ÿ˜–๐Ÿ˜ข๐Ÿค”๐Ÿ˜ฌ๐Ÿ˜ง๐Ÿ˜ฒ๐Ÿ˜ฎ๐Ÿ˜ฅ๐Ÿ˜ฐ๐Ÿ˜ณ๐Ÿคจ๐Ÿ˜ก๐Ÿฅต๐Ÿคฌ๐Ÿคข๐Ÿ˜ฑwhere you do not allow yourself to open or close a trade if you identify with any of these emojis except for ๐Ÿ™‚๐Ÿ˜or ๐Ÿค”. ๐Ÿ˜‰

    Interested to hear others thoughts on this, particularly if they are/were online nlh regs... in regards to the poker analogy: my guess is that today (not 2000s) 1/2+ nlh on stars is harder than trading most markets....
