Thanks guys, I appreciate the examples and look forward to more!

Mike

Due to time constraints, please do not PM me if your question can be resolved or answered on the forum.

Need help?
1) Stop changing things. No new indicators, charts, or methods. Be consistent with what is in front of you first.
2) Start a journal and post to it daily with the trades you made to show your strengths and weaknesses.
3) Set goals for yourself to reach daily. Make them about how you trade, not how much money you make.
4) Accept responsibility for your actions. Stop looking elsewhere to explain away poor performance.
5) Where to start as a trader? Watch this webinar and read this thread for hundreds of questions and answers.
6)
Help using the forum? Watch this video to learn general tips on using the site.

Here's some different reviews...
Hive Five: Five Best Mind Mapping Applications - Mind Mapping - Lifehacker

I have used an older version of FreeMind in the past for website development. It works great and it's free. Looks like it has been updated
Main Page - FreeMind - free mind mapping software

Never really thought about using for trading rules, etc.... hmmm - great idea

edit -
This is related if you want to look at website relationships in a "mindmap" way

For me tony buzan mind map method was the best - it use creativity just to design it.
IMO the importance is that WE-creators understand and know what we write on our mind map - best way to achieve it, is to draw as nice as it is. somehow it sound stupid but when you *feel all the word that we write, we manage to knew and remember those words/arrangement

Making your trading system to a mind map was a GREAT IDEA !

regards,

Hi all,
I have been a Mind Map user for years. In my corporate role (I'm now semi retired) I would use them to help with meetings, brainstorming sessions and note taking. Often I would use the note taking maps to brief management and staff. Very powerful and easy to use once you have some practice. I now use them to map books that I want to understand better. Attached is a sample.

My software of choice is Mindjet Mind Manager. This is commercial software but is worth a look as it integrates well with Office applications.

@Angelo1 Hi - I'm in the north west near Outer Harbour.

I've attached another mindmap about goal setting for people to peruse. I never got around to putting lots of images on this one, which is a pity as it does add to the effectiveness of the map.

Anyway goal setting is important in all aspects of life. Hope people get something out of the map.

Cheers,
Meggs

When they started as a company i used their first version to organise links and bits of info i needed when i worked for an IT company as a consultant. Was impressed by the user interface. It was innovative.

Hi Meggs thanks for getting back to me, I've downloaded the 7 day imindmap trial great program & thanks for the feedback too

favour to ask,
are you trading these days & using Ninja?

if you are, are you willing to spend a few hours with me as I'm struggleing with Ninja & getting fluent with placing trades on super DOM etc, I'm a kinesthetic learner, goes along way with confidence for me, if you are ok with that I have a large trading office out the back of our house as a place to meet if that suits.

Cheers Angelo

you can email me directly as i can not due to not being Elite enough!

Mind Maps for Macs

Using Mind Maps already a very long time to visualize complex situations (most of them for my own purpose
and others for instructional use) there are many good programs on the market.
One of the most useful and easy to use for Mac users I found here:

MyThoughts for Mac | Mind Mapping the Mac Way

A strong function is to zoom into a branch and see more and more details in there without losing the big picture.
Great possibilities to hide some films / animations / sounds / form letters etc. in a subbranch.

One could possibly add a 3rd dimension to mind maps with De Bono's Six Thinking Hats. I found it to be an extremely useful way to categorize information.

From the Wiki:

"Six distinct states are identified and assigned a color:

Information: (White) - considering purely what information is available, what are the facts?
Emotions (Red) - instinctive gut reaction or statements of emotional feeling (but not any justification)
Bad points judgment (Black) - logic applied to identifying flaws or barriers, seeking mismatch
Good points judgment (Yellow) - logic applied to identifying benefits, seeking harmony
Creativity (Green) - statements of provocation and investigation, seeing where a thought goes
Thinking (Blue) - thinking about thinking"

Essentially, any subject or strategy can be analyzed along those dimensions. Forces one to be complete and look at things from many different angles... reveals surprising perspectives sometimes. Just try it.

"The mind is its own place, and in itself can make a heaven of hell, a hell of heaven." - Milton
