There's always a bull market somewhere right?

You really need to consider and analyze the emotional factors that influence your trading. It is not fun sitting in cash on the sidelines. It's much more fun checking your stocks on a daily/hourly basis watching them go up and down making you lose or gain money. There really is a psychological draw to want to have a position and check the position's profit/loss repeatedly. The problem is, you're not supposed to be doing what's fun. You're supposed to be following the strategy.
