How to Video your Trades?

Is there a "How to Video your Trades" Thread some where? I can't seem to find it. I don't want the the video you trades for only 30 minutes or an hour. I want to be able to video the whole 7 hours session. So is there a thread or post? Thanks

What's your OS?

I would check out wisdom soft or windows media encoder.

Camtasia is an excellent program but relatively expensive.
It might be worth it though. Check it out.

if you want free, then Hypercam2 is great! It only records in AVI though which are quite large and then need to convert with other software program that is free as well.

Oh, and Hypercam can record 2 screens at once!

For personal journal recording, I've used Camtasia with the picture-in-picture option. What this does is record my trading screen (my entry chart/dom) as well as my webcam, so it lets me see my physical reactions or emotions to go along with the trade.

It's pretty simple, but Camtasia is not cheap (I've had it for years) and if you want to permanently archive these videos you'll probably want to encode them into smaller file sizes, which can take a huge amount of time depending on how cutting edge your computer is. A general approx is 1:1 meaning 1 minute to encode for every 1 minute recorded.

A free alternative, and without the webcam option, is Camstudio. The files it produces are still very large and if you want to keep them permanently, you'll need to encode them. While Camtasia comes with the encoder, Camstudio does not. However, you can download HandBrake for free and it will encode the Camstudio files with ease. I recommend you select High profile as your output option, it will be compatible with VLC or WMP players and be the smallest file size/best quality.

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.

As a replacement to camstudio you could use the easy to use BBFlash express. Or might just as well work, subscribe to anymeeting and record your screen, video cam etc.. No need to store your file on your computer as they take care of it.

If you find yourself in Mac OS X, Telestream's ScreenFlow is good; it works like Camtasia - you can capture your screen at the same time as you capture your video through your webcam; I purchased it for my Mac for £81 (incl Shipping & VAT) over a year ago.

I also vote for camtasia. I'm in the process of creating a trading strategy. Got camtasia recording the indicators and chart setup so that I can review how everything moves in realtime. I can then go back and review the vid and sometimes see things I didn't see before.

I would also go for Camtasia. I have used it for many years now, and although quite expensive it does the job extremely well. I also use it for the videos I post on my own website (in Danish):

As an owner of Camtasia, I have to caution that I don't give it such stellar reviews... the main problems seem to be related to large recording window sizes and/or large file sizes. It crashes frequently if you attempt to do any post-production editing, which is something you would likely do (to remove dead space) in the case of a personal trading video journal.

If you keep it simple, no post-production, then it doesn't crash much or at all. But even then, the encoder is really subpar compared to even free offerings like HandBrake (subpar in that it isn't flexible enough on the output options/parameters to optimize quality and file size).

I strongly recommend the trial before you purchase it, and make sure you do exactly what you intend to do in "production" (post trial).
