I have decided to post a journal in this forum for the sole purpose of helping myself with discipline. I have found that I eat away at my profits with trades that do not meet the exact criteria of my trading system. I hope to eliminate these 'out of character trades' by realizing before I take the trade that there is no reason to take the trade and I wouldn't be able to enter the signal for the trade into this journal. I have told myself before, several times actually, after a losing out of character trade, that this would be the last time I would do this because my profits would be so much better if I just stuck to the rules, PERIOD. I will explain my system in the next post. I will not give all details of the system being that systems apparently do not work after they are revealed. I'll post charts and identify the signals on the charts. This will be an evolving journal so the manner in which I post to it will change as I see fit.
