REVEALED – My Trading Routine
It’s no holy grain, but routine is crucial.
You need to find what works vest for you.
This way you’ll be able to streamline your trading activities.
Here, I lift the curtain to reveal my daily trading routine — a blend of ritual, strategy, and discipline that helps me navigate the markets with confidence.
My routine is not a magical formula for instant success, but a systematized approach that helps me get up and just get to it.
First, the trading day starts with a good cup of coffee, lemon water and yoghurt and muesli.
It’s not just about the caffeine kick, but also the ritual involved.
Brewing coffee and the other bits, gives me time to mentally prepare for the day, clear my mind from distractions, and focus on the tasks ahead.
The lemon water, kickstarts the stomach and neutralises the acids. Try it.
It’s my simple, personal ritual that sets the tone for the rest of the day.
Open My Charting Platform
Once I’m caffeinated and alert, I log into my preferred charting platform. I use TradingView for the charts and a few trading platforms with the brokers.
It’s essential to have a reliable, intuitive platform that aligns with your trading style and strategy.
Over the years, I’ve customized my platform with specific tools and indicators that I regularly use, enabling efficient and focused analysis.
As you’ve seen I have my customised indicators and setups ready to go.
Analyse the Main Market Trends
Trading bias is what sets the mood.
Go onto your daily or weekly charts with different main indices.
And jot down, on your trading platform whether you are.
Long biased (Only looking for longs)
Short biased (Only looking for sells)
Neutral biased (Waiting for a breakout)
This high-level analysis helps me understand the market’s overall mood and possible influencing factors.
Also, I make a note of any significant events or releases scheduled for the day that might impact my trades. You can go to Forexfactory and see if there are any HIGH impact news events for the day, that could have an effect on your Forex trading.
Look for Trading Setups
Next, I start scanning for potential trading setups.
I use my pre-defined criteria and I look for opportunities that align with my trading strategy.
Here you’ll see I send out trading ideas and analyses on Discord https://discord.gg/c8f37kyv35 and if I really see something 100% ready to press the buy or sell button I send it to my Premium Discord group for Premium members only. https://www.timonandmati.com/product/premium-mati-trader-service-new-year-special/
Plug in Trading Levels
After I’ve found potential setups and high probability trades.
I determine my entry, stop-loss, take-profit levels and quantity to buy or sell for each trade.
These levels are guided by my risk management rules and are non-negotiable.
I use my pattern trading strategy accompanied with Smart Money Concepts.
Finally, with all the analysis done and trading levels set.
I just take the trade/s.
This is where discipline really comes into play.
Regardless of the market noise or sudden fluctuations, I stick to my plan.
After all, successful trading is not about making impulsive decisions but about consistently following a well-thought-out strategy.
So that’s it.
There are a couple of other things, like analysing and re-evaluating the portfolio once a week and when to prepare for paying tax and possible withdraws and deposits.
But this is more subjective and is determined in sporadic parts of the year, that changes each time.
This is just a taste.
Remember, a good trading routine is one that suits your personal style, strategy, and goals.
So feel free to tweak, adjust, and make it your own.
