brownsfan019 had this idea, so here it is . This is not a paper trading journal!. I give the symbol of a stock, and a "buy", "sell" or "short" rating, and a time frame. For each symbol, I will give a grade of 'A' , 'B', and 'F' after the time frame has expired here is how the grades are rated: F - the stock went in the opposite direction of my call (pt missed) B - the stock traded sideways ( pt missed) A - my call happened at, or before the determined time frame (pt reached) -- Prices will be given, but the # of shares will be left out for the reason I stated above. I will use the prices to track %'age p/l performance. .... I hope this works If you guys have any suggestions on how I could do this better, please let me know.
