Why You Should Keep a Trading Journal and How to Do It

Keeping a Trading Journal will help you form a deeper understanding of your trading process by making you more aware of your progress. By recording all of your results, you can confidently track your trading development which will bolster your knowledge and help you secure your spot as a more efficient trader in the industry. 

“By keeping track of your results, you will gain insight into yourself and your trading that no book, seminar, indicator, or system could ever tell you.” 

• Mark Minervini, author of Think and trade like a champion.

“Successful traders know that a consistent and systematic review of their daily trading activities is the direct path to growing and improving.”
• Dr. Van Tharp, author of Super Trader.

“If you do not have good records, how can you measure your performance, rate your progress, and learn from your mistakes? Those who do not learn from the past are doomed to repeat it.”
• Dr. Alexander, author of Trading for a Living
