I wanted to share something I have been doing for the past year. I joined this forum years and years ago and have found myself back on it. I am curious what some of you traders do to build out review materials for daily trading. I fill this sheet out every day and it really has worked wonders in identifying patterns so that I can tweak and/or create rules to raise my baseline performance. I re-calibrate every week and re-baseline every month.

Can you explain some more about how to use it in the various fields that you have? For example are your numbers subjective measurements of performance?

A very interesting "intention." Like you, I'm from Chicago... and I have lurked and used "Big Mikes" for years. I do my thing. It works and I don't want anyone telling me it doesn't... because, confidence ( "mental acuity" ) is what separates the winners from the losers in this game.

Full disclaimer: Being a Sunday afternoon, on the back of a successful week... I'm having some "Lynchburg Lemonade" and relaxing, lurking for things that may give me an Edge next week. I got a email saying no one had responded, so here it goes...

In the mid '90s I use to correspond with two Wall Street Legends... I mean Real Legends. This Internet thing was just starting... professionals were dabbling with it, while not losing The Main Focus, i.e. Risk vs. Reward, many would kill time in between trades trying to be "social." Your post reminded me of what one of them told me regarding the copper market: "... your odds of success are less than 1 in 20. If you fold in a family, normal mid-life phases etc. your odds drop to around 1 in 50." I've never forgotten it... he was "on the nose" 100%.

So, that brings me to your matrix: it's way of controlling the normal emotions we all face everyday. With any experience, you realize entires have very little importance... it's the "methods" or "systems" you have in place to deal with the unpredictability of the Markets. Thus, one needs an algorithm for the emotions and an algorithm for the entries/exits.

Your "matrix" provides one piece of the puzzle. But, there's a third component: the Discipline to follow the discovered knowledge. The Legends don't waiver... they stick to their "knitting."

I'd be happy to discuss with you more... off-post. Let me know...

Yes I grade myself at the end of every session. just an honest thorough assessment. As I have shown in the additional picture I use this solely to identify patterns with the conditional pattern. by identifying patterns I can see where I can implement a fix. Could be a rule, a routine or some other fix. the cool part of trading is if you have 5 things that aren't working you really may only have to make one change...but stick to it! execute flawlessly!
