The Trading "Groove"

I believe that a HUGE part of trading is being able to relax your brain, and let yourself focus on the trade. For me, and i know for a lot of others, music is a huge part of completing tasks where your brain must be in tip-top shape. What i am interested in, just out of curiosity, what other traders use to help get into the “mindset” of trading.

For some reason, it’s music for me. I play the following 5 songs when i first open up the charts and for some reason i get into this focused state where i kind of dance or bounce my head or whatever youd like to call it :o and analysis just happens automatically.

  1. Tune Up! - Ravers Fantasy
  2. Tune Up! - Colours of the Rainbow
  3. Tune Up! - Feel Fine
  4. Alex Gaudino - Destination Calabria
  5. Young Jeezy - Go Getta
  6. Darude - Sandstorm

Look them up on youtube, all are excellent songs if you like techno.
Anyways, lets hear em!

Wow! I must be getting old and un-cool fast. I don’t even know who they are. But if they put your mind in a neutral state where you can be a rational thinker, then something as simple as listening to music may be a nice psychological attribute.
