I have traded off and on for nearly 10 years as merely a hobby(very small positions) in stocks and commodities- oddly more profitably in commodities & futures than stocksconfused: ). I never ramped up for a number of various reasons including access to a sufficient starting capital base. Anyhow, after this long a period of training I feel reasonably confident( ) to try to gradually scale up my operations. Numerous sources recommend creating a business plan(since it is going to trading as a BUSINESS) will contribute to success. My question is where might one find an example or a template of a TRADERS business plan. I can find examples of plans for restaurants, consultants, retail but they always focus on sales, marketing, suppliers, customers, blah, blah. . . . .(thankfully trading doesn't need any of this ) I do NOT need a trading system or methodology- that I have(although always being refined, bit by bit). What would be helpful though would be a sound plan to wrap around the trading strategy.
