I am planning to start a journal to review my trading day and track my progress and emotions. My goal is to get over my psychological barriers and iron out any technical kinks in my strategy. I have more than $50k in my account but I will use only $1k out of this for trading plus any future profits. My goal is to keep this journal till the end of 2018 and see how I perform. If I am successful I will know for sure by the end of 2018 and if I fail that will be $1k well spent in tuition. Constructive suggestions are welcome. For now I only trade stocks and etfs.
