Staying in the Zone: Why I Stay Quiet in Early AM in the Room

I don't like to talk over the mic in the room in the Early AM period. This article from Brett Steenbarger over at http://traderfeed.blogspot.com/ indicates probably that what I have unconsciously been trying to do is Stay in the Zone

The Surprising Reason We're Not In The Zone When We Trade


"The bottom left display shows that I am functioning "in the zone" during this period of coherence.  Over that period, almost all my scores fall into the green (high) coherence category (bottom right frame).  When hooked to the unit, you can see your rhythms, whether you're in the zone, and whether you're scoring in the green area.  All of these give you instantaneous feedback to let you know if your self-control efforts are succeeding. Notice the change in my rhythms (top panel) about midway through the demonstration.  At that point, I began talking aloud about financial markets in a stream of consciousness fashion.  I was *not* talking about anything stressful, but notice that simply taking my mind off the self-control efforts was sufficient to get me out of the zone (bottom left panel) and put my readings in the red zone."
