Today i worked on the outline of my trading plan and began answering some of the fundamental questions that make up my trading plan. Here is a list of my trading plan elements that I am using. Note that this is only a partial list and is not exaustive. Yourself & Purpose Trading Goals Markets and Timeframe Tools of the trade Pre Market Risk Management Exits Strategy and Entry Post Market Discipline I would like to thank Tim Wilcox from the T2W forums for providing me with the template for my trading plan. I would also like to thank Dr. Van K Tharp for his template in his book Financial Freedom Through Electronic Day Trading. What i found when i started answering these questions is a lot of them are yet to be determined. Since i do not have live quotes yet for the market I will be trading it leaves a lot of blanks in my trading plan but i worked on what i could. I feel not having quotes yet is actually beneficial because it allows me to work on my trading plan in areas that most people often neglect.
