Is it allowed to make the diary with the sim101 account of ninjatrader?

Yes. Ultimately, the members decide by voting using the 'Thanks' button. But there is no rule that says you cannot.

You don't have to be trading a live account to benefit from keeping a journal, and you don't have to be trading a live account to enter this journal challenge either.

yes you are right, the reason why I have always been using dollars is that the trades that I post are made for TST combine, which measures everything (max daily loss, max drawdowns, profit targets etc...) in dollar terms.

It's your journal, which you keep to help your trading. So do whatever is best for you, to help you improve.

There is no necessary format. Use the journal the way you would use it if there were no contest. Probably others will understand well enough, and it is about your trading, in any case.

Thanks, that's what I was thinking. What's the benefit of the journal if the only objective is to win the challenge. But I will try to keep it clear, to the point, and reflect my progress or failure.

Why be so obsessed with Money?

How about being a trader because you LOVE being a trader?

And that probably is the secret of being a SUCCESSFUL trader - just BEING!

Just be, let go of the profits.

Let go of the losses.

Let go of the missed trades.

Let go of targets, schedules, over-analyzing, over-journaling, over-planning.

Just Be!!

And watch the magic happen to your account, and how you naturally buy low and sell high!!

Side benefits:

Ego: Dissolves! Greed: has left the building! Fear: is denied entry!


P.S.:

These are all of my rules,
lest you think they are for fools,
Let me create this journal,
And show you my process so simple!


A simple Thanks to this post
Will do service to the most!
