But day trading is much harder than swing trading as I'm sure you know.
...

Just saying it's the reverse for many of us. Swing trading was harder for me in that I eventually gave it up. I'm sure a lot of us went to day trading so as not to worry about gaps turning swing trades into losers overnight. If you don't mind recommending an effective swing trading education book I would sure be interested.

Congratulations on your journal!



In the spirit of our March Trading Journal contest, I am asking everyone to spend a few minutes and share their journaling experience.

A) What are the top five benefits you have seen as a result of regularly posting in this journal?

B) What are the top five problem areas you have identified as a result of regularly posting in this journal?

C) Were you initially reluctant to start this trading journal? If yes, why?

D) How do you feel, overall, about your journaling experience?

E) Would you recommend to others that they should also start a trading journal?

Thank you for taking the time to answer my questions. I appreciate your posts, and I hope you have benefited from your journal. I also know that others will benefit as well, just by reading about your own experiences.

Enjoy your weekend,
Mike
