Today marks the end of a 18 month journey to crossover into the land of profit. It has taken much longer than I ever expected and I hope to help others shorten this learning curve. In this journal I will post my trades as close to my actual entry and exit as possible. I normally take 1-7 trades per day. Trading is not about having the "perfect setup" or holy grail, but it is about how you interpret price and what the market data is telling you. There are many different ways of accomplishing this goal and I try to keep things as simple as possible. I believe that every trader needs to develop their own style and find out what specific settings work best for them. But I hope this journal provides a basic framework to those wishing to improve their trading.
