dodgin bulletsChess players play speed chess to exercise their minds under pressure and hone their instincts and reflexes. A question– do or have any of you put yourself in a position of making rapid-fire decisions about a market direction as a way of warming up or practicing reaction time and decision making under pressure? I understand that some of you probably do this in your actual trading, but does anyone do it for practice, either on paper or with small amounts of money with actual trades?

Example of a possible scenario. After the market has opened, someone calls out to you rapid-fire a number of futures markets or stocks, and you have to instantly answer– without hesitation– buy or sell. And you measure the results over a given holding period. I wonder if the results would be random? Would the results be different on paper vs. actually trading the answers?
