11:45 Final thoughts on when to be aggressive in a trade
When should a trader be aggressive? How do you recognize that?
Like I laid out: it’s mentally, financially, and statistically, all of those things have to line up. They don’t have to be perfect, but they do have to line up.
There’s no way for me to really tell you exactly when that is the right time for you as a trader. This comes through experience. This comes through time. Give yourself time to get to the point where you do understand when you should be aggressive.
I put this tweet out the other day, when markets are busy, we tend to feel like we have to be participating because we think we should be making money in busy markets over my career.
My best days aren’t the days that the market’s busy. It’s the days that I’m in rhythm with the market. Focus on getting in rhythm.
