I love this graph. It plots both my win% and my avgwin:avgloss on the same graph, so you can see how they interact at the same time, it also shows how my "style" drifts, and what I might need to focus my attention on improving. Trust me, it's always something.

Over the last 20 trades, we can see how my avg win:loss ratio has steadily declined, while my win% has gotten steadily better. Definitely due to me changing trading styles to more scalping.

I can recognize some application of Lance Beggs's ideas in your journal. Did you study his material? If yes, how did you like?

Awesome Journal

Indextrader7,

A daily video racap of your trades is great! Do you review your videos after you make them a few days later? Also I dig your detailed statistics, definitely one of the more transparent traders Ive ever seen, keep up the good work!

Wojo,

I'm glad you enjoy the trade recaps.

Yes, sometimes I go back and watch the recaps. I walk though a combination of:
A) My written trade journal thoughts/feelings/expectations/things noticed about how the market moves/etc for all my trades

B) Go through one of my video recaps (or what I used to do was simply take a screenshot of all my trades on the charts) and visually see what I did in the context of market movement(I'm a visual price action trader of course), so going through this teaches me things I did well and possibly am not doing now. I spot things that subconsciously I have learned a lesson on (but not consciously), that I didn't know then, and it kind of "clicks" and creates a nice learning moment.

To me, stats are a part of the trading process just as trading itself is.

Transparency is my gift to new traders. Through my trading journey, I've been alone and not known much other than what Alexander Elder or Mark Douglas told me about trading. For me to be able to SHOW what it looks like, is very gratifying from a teaching/sharing perspective. Actually, even to this day, I honestly don't know how "good" of a trader I am (among "good" traders). I know I'm consistently profitable, but I don't know if I'm an excellent trader, or just barely consistently profitable. Would love for someone to share here, or PM me if they want to be private about it.

Transparency is also accountability for me. I don't want to have to report to you guys that I did some terrible trading!

Happy hunting

Are all of your stat charts done in TradeStation? I haven't used TS in years and I recognize the equity curve chart but not the others. I like the presentation of them so I was just curious what you are using.

I only post the equity chart on the TS platform to provide some legitimacy to my performance on the forum here; I don't use it at all for my own stats. I wish I could, as it would save me some data entry time, but there's no way for it to realize when I scale in/out of a trade that it's still the SAME trade. Someone let me know if they know of a way!

All my stats are done on a good ole fashioned excel spreadsheet I made.
