It’s a learned skill with the quality of your results being attributed via the mother of all learning, ‘Repetition’ & in proportion Ω to your level of intensity of focus. Meditation is an important piece in the ‘Super Traders’repertoire.

During meditation all intellectual thought is temporarily bypassed with external forces & distractions also being consciously suppressed.

For the ‘Super Trader’ once within this meditative state, his thinking relates only to the object he is focusing on or the process of focusing itself.
Being in a relaxed state makes you ‘more’ rather than less alert.
