    Hello everyone,

    We can all agree that a traders state of mind plays a crucial role in a traders performance.

    What do you guys listen to, if anything at all, while trading?

    Personally, I’ve narrowed it down to classical music as it helps the most when trying to keep calm whether i’m in a losing trade or a winning trade.

    This is one of my favorites. Debussy’s “Clair de Lune.” Enjoy!

    Personally I use a phone app which plays Binaural beats. Binaural beats help change the frequency of ones brain to be in a more productive state. The app I use is called Brainwave and I can choose if I want to be in amore relaxed state, high alert and many others.

    Honestly, I listen to whatever plays on apple music shuffle.
    I just pick a song that I am into that day/week and let apple decide what plays next.

    The noise helps me focus at first but when I focus, I end up not hearing the music anyway and forget that I’m even listening to anything.
    When I lose focus after an hour or so I remember that music is playing again. 🎵
    Usually ends up being something very different from what I started on 😂

    Although, if I’m not into a particular song that week, my go to is lofi
