Welcome to

Welcome, Guest!

This forum was established to help traders (especially futures traders) by openly sharing indicators, strategies, methods, trading journals and discussing the psychology of trading.

We are fundamentally different than most other trading forums:
  • We work extremely hard to keep things positive on our forums.
  • We do not tolerate rude behavior, trolling, or vendor advertising in posts.
  • We firmly believe in openness and encourage sharing. The holy grail is within you, it is not something tangible you can download.
  • We expect our members to participate and become a part of the community. Help yourself by helping others.

You'll need to register in order to view the content of the threads and start contributing to our community. It's free and simple, and we will never resell your private information.

@madLyfe, thanks yes its great for data entry PnL/targets/stops in ticks and all that, I recently switched to it myself.
However Im more interested how people journal new ideas, their mistakes in words not numbers, if they use video recording with commentary rather than taking screen shots and writing into them. I believe just to record where you entered in ticks, where you did exit in ticks and say MAE/MFE is not enough.

How do you record you mistakes in execution or trade management, how do you review it?

there is a section for notes in there.. i just review daily trades on my own and sometimes in my journal on here..

dont believe anything you hear and only half of what you see
