So far, I have been waiting for breakouts to happen and trading them the following day. I thought: “I am waiting to long-term trades to come along, so I can afford to miss the first percent or so”. But I am not sure that that is right, because after the main breakout has happened, it is much harder to get a good entry level.

I am therefore watching intra-day the few markets that look like they could be close to breakout levels. I can’t watch everything 24 hours a day, of course, but I hope it means that I will be more likely to catch new moves as they happen.
