Trading Coach: Avoiding afternoon impotence


Denise Shull on laying the problem out.


Almost every single day of trading, I start off as a whiz-kid. I make oodles of dough in the AM but way too many times, like 3-4 days a week, I give most of it back. I just don’t get it. Clearly I know what I am doing – or at least I do in the morning. What happens to me? My CIO/mentor and CRO have about had it. It’s becoming crystal clear, through their tone and their body language, that I am on a very short leash.
