I have recently transitioned to trading full-time. The last several months have been spent getting my systems, hot keys, etc. set up the way I want and establishing a basic comfortable level since it has been over 7 years since I last traded full-time. I also have been adjusting to the differences in the market today versus the specialist-based system of trading I used to use predecimilization. I am starting this journal to track my progress and formalize the process of assessing my trading and continuing to enhance my performance. Today, market action this morning was quite chaotic in the stocks I was trading, and I do not want to be involved in any positions going into the fed meeting, so I have flattened out my positions and am calling it a day. Analysis of Daily Trading. Action was very chaotic this morning with huge spreads in the symbols I was trading. I did well maintaining my discipline and waiting for things to settle down, even though there were a few trades that I could have been involved with. I made a few higher risk trades with very small size to test the waters a bit, and then had a great setup and loaded up and took a nice profit on it which made my day. Up 654 gross on 12,000 shares.
