Price alerts in your trading routine can help, but more so as a day trader, in my HUMBLE opinion, or if you are watching lots of different prices.
Some traders prefer placing entry orders at their levels, some prefer price alerts so they can gauge price action.
It depends on you; your risk tolerance, your trade plan and your rules.
(If you need help with deciding this, and many do, please get in touch with the CTI team.)
Some people will rant about don’t spend time on TV, sleep etc work on analysing your trades—yes analysing your trades are important.
But some of these guys are wackos. You can tell some of them have really never traded or do not actively trade.
You can absolutely do those things, but do not slack. Book some time, focused time to really review your trades and build some expectations for the week.
Depending on your lifestyle and priorities, Friday night-Sunday could be a good time to consider. Bear in mind that the FX market opens 10 PM UK time, however. You get so called “motivational” people, trading is no different.
Regarding how much focused time to take. If you have not done it before, start small, maybe try 20 minutes- then the following week 30 minutes, then work your way up.
