It’s all very well writing about this stuff, but what does it look like in practice?
To give you a taste of the real thing, I took a series of screen shots while I was trading. It’s not something I like to do, because any distraction is a bad thing, but I hope you find it beneficial. I decided to focus exclusively on soybeans. Normally, I put off this decision until I’ve observed the open and see which of the grain markets I prefer, but I can’t do that and take screen shots, so I will stick to the beans.
The illustration below shows my trading screen at 00:22:56.
