The point of this journal is to help focus on the losing days, winning days are easy to deal with. My trading system, if followed correctly, gives me on average 48 losing days a year. I day trade, so these are closed out losses at the end of the day. I do not get signals to trade every day. I have had 19 Losing days so far in 2017, up to the middle of May: -5530 -3130 -756 -4379 -265 -2732 -4187 -2058 -4974 -103 -2807 -2766 -3243 -4107 -3778 -5209 -3513 -8699 -4668 All the above losses are in GBP so add 25% to each loss to convert to USD. I will continue to update this journal after each losing day. The latest losing streak is 2 days long (-8699 and -4668), this streak is still ongoing.
