I think you might benefit from this:

Jimzipcode put together a 6-part MI tutorial for newbies. The link above is to the third of the six installments, and some discussion of hold strategies is included there. When you have some time to block off, I'd also recommend reviewing the other five posts, found immediately before and after this post numerically.

This was helpful to me when I started MI. It was posted in 2006 and obviously doesn't include events subsequent to then, but it is still a relevant primer IMO.

Personally, I trade screens weekly, and don't face the same issues you are considering with the monthly holds.
