Thanks: 0 given, 5 received

I have been trading full-time for 2.5 years and also have ~20 years trading experience. I trade to generate daily income utilizing very short term trades. My game changers were trading with a plan, active stop management, trading psychology awareness, and keeping a journal to manage what I'm doing right or wrong so I may take corrective action.

I normally trade anywhere from 100 - 250 trades a day so my journal entries will be based on trading sequences. For example, if I catch a trend to the upside I will include my areas of entries with charts or videos. At the end of the sequence I will summarize my winners and losers. I will detail my reasons for entries and exits.

I look forward everyone's comments and feedback,

100 to 250 times a day? This should be interesting!
