FYI. Just to say you have posted a link to @JimmyB 2011 's trade journal by mistake.

July Journal Challenge

Hi Traders!

Currently I'm doing a One Up Trading Challenge and I'm sharing my process unfiltered here.

I've been a student of trading for a while now and at this point my trading style is very simple price action based trading, mostly what I've learned from Mack at PATS.

Right now what I'm certain of is that it is possible to trade consistently profitable and executing on an edge will get you ahead on the long run but there are days when I forget this and go mental. So most of my work at this point is to grow mentally and follow the plan unquestionably.

Best trading to you cheers

Nevous Nelly's Jorunal

I'll throw my hat in the ring, might as well, right?

Does it matter if my journal is in the elite section only?

Failing and anxiety are apart of learning something new. If you fail, get back up and push through the pain, and it’s okay to be uncomfortable.

The great big bund trading journal

Wanted to put in my journal as well.

A pure price action journal. No trading of indicators or whatever - pure PA.
Honestly only for myself as I had some particular goals I wanted to become better at, but apparently beneficial to others as well.

  • In realtime, jot down the the action I see while it's happening
  • In realtime, jot down the emotion I have when putting and pulling a trade
  • Become better at trading mechanically
  • Review my action, correct mistakes and feel more confident.
  • Set and track a small number of goals to work on for the next period
  • Make myself accountable

Also, I'm always happy to answers any questions in the journal or provide more explanations about what I'm seeing or doing.

July Journal Challenge

I'll throw my journal in the challenge as well.

I've been journaling here on FIO since June 2016 with a few extended breaks interspersed throughout. I trade spot forex and focus on EURUSD, GBPUSD, USDJPY, and USDCAD. My style is pure price action.

Page 1 of my journal with my introduction can be found at the link below and my recent restart this past June can be found here.
