How-to record and upload a video journal

We recommend using screen recording software like Bandicam or Screencast-o-Matic:



Both offer free versions with the ability to capture your screen and audio (mic), saving the files to a Video Format like MP4.

1. Download and install the video recording software (such as one above).
2. Open your trading platform.
3. Launch the screen recording software, and set it to record the screen. Make note not to record any sensitive areas of the screen that you don't want to appear in the video journal, such as account numbers.
