I am interested in knowing the format traders keep their journals. I am looking for ideas to become more efficient at keeping notes about myself and my trading. I am more inclined to be electronic as I have the tendency to collect massive amounts of paper. All ideas are welcome. I have been tinkering with different formats for a while and would like to get some feedback from others. So: Do you keep your journal in a notebook/leather binder type [handwritten] or the electronic/pc type, or perhaps some other? Are you using some type of trade prep/management worksheets during the trading day which you transfer the information to your journals later? Also, are you updating your journal in realtime or is it only after the market closes? Finally, if you keep the electronic/pc type of format, are you using a separate pc other than the machine you trade on? Thanks in advance!
