starting an equity trading journal. last journal was more about options, and if i learned anything, it was that my trading should probably be relegated to equities, unless i enjoy blowing up. which i dont... basically looking to put into practice the lessons and the patience i believe i've been learning recently. attempting to put my ego aside as well, which thus far has been a monumental task. geez, i mean look at the title of this thread. my trades are based on TA. i don't plan (right now) to hold overnight. i believe my targets and stops should be met intraday if done correctly. hopefully i will recognize i'm doing something wrong if that begins to happen and the justifications start rolling out of my mouth as to why im holding overnight. historically, this has not been the mark of my winning trades. i also believe in only trading a couple of stocks at a time, and becoming an expert (assuming that's possible) day in and day out of how those stocks move. this journal should not end up reflecting the moves of a person who overtrades (I'd like to think I'm well past that). This journal will hopefully be a lesson in ass kicking (hopefully not my own). any input is welcome.
