Yea, tv is a no no here as well. I don't need rubbish talking chickens for a brainwash. Funny thing is they talk about internet addiction but nobody talks about tv addiction while I bet most ppl are tv addicted, lol.
I start with looking at my bot parameters. If some show there is no trade the day then I look for something else. If there is a trade the day then I watch them and shift that looking for something else to a later time. What news comes out I usually know the evening before, but it doesn't change a pip for my bots.
If I do not watch my bots I answer emails, sometimes try to search for new edges while looking at price action or make a backtest of a new strategy or try to find the "holy grail" indicator. Plus every day I ask the same question: Do I need a new vps provider or not?
