In order to master a setup or an idea you need to be at it day in and day out. In order to do this I run 2 scan for bullish and bearish. After running the scan everyday I study these moves.

Studying immediate past winners tells you what is working in the market and what kind of setups to look for to find those kind of winners. One of the best reason for doing this is it is based on actual past winners in immediate time frame. Doing this regularly alerts you to subtle changes in setups or market environment. Doing this daily everyday builds incremental expertise. This is a daily habit. A daily effort like this cumulatively builds your understanding of the setup you trade. I prioritise this kind of an effort at start of the day. This kind of study should be regular habit.

Study these 8% moves closely to see how the move happens. As i trade two types of setups, one looking for big moves and another looking for short term moves, I focus my efforts on studying that timeframe and magnitude move. Knowing what worked ten years ago may or may not be useful, but knowing what is working in last one week, month, quarter or year is more helpful as it reflects current market situation.
