I have reduced my trading activity in the last few months.

My trading volumes this year are much lower compared to last year.

Restricting my trading has helped my in two ways:

1. I can give more time to my work.
2. I make less losses. (I am no good at trading. The more I trade, the more I lose). :D.

Here is a comparison of my FY 2010-2011 trading volumes and my FY 2011-2012 trading volumes.

FY 2010 - 2011:




FY 2011 - 2012:

I too have restricted my activity for the past two years for some reason which lead to increase in my losses by not concentrating.

but Captainjeee with your self moratorium we are missing some genuine quality stock thoughts like IL&FS, VST so on... :listen::listen: I made good money from VST industries though

When I play poker, I look around for people who will never, or only very reluctantly, fold. I believe it's worth my while knowing those who will make me rich!

Pity, trading has lost this quality of a contact sport. How I long for the floor!

Yes agree. Same with me. I have in fact made money by restricting to max lose per month to 2% of my trading capital.

Alexander Elder is a champion on this subject!

I trade 1 or 2 times a month only!

Due to the same reason I too reduced it. Infact I don't trade much but tend to read (spend time) more related to market/stock.

Realised that if I would have spent the same amount of time in my office related things it could have been much more fruitful than this.

I too have reduced trading activity because of the same reason. Its not that i have totally left it but now i try to maintain a balance between my work life and trading.

Well it's not about restricting your trading activity. It's just about knowing the right time to trade. The idea is to not miss out on opportunities. Whether you see 2 opportunities or 50 opportunities, restricting won’t help, trading would be better. Just know how much to trade.

Yes I agree trading is better for some people but not advisable if one fall into blind addiction.
