Hello HenryandSteen,

First of all, best of luck with your trading. Striving for simplicity is a great goal.
However, not knowing what you are doing, and not having a plan does severely limit your probability of success.
Why is it that you trade, what is your objective?

Thanks !

My experience tells me having a strict plan will result in alot of loss. Dont know why? This is my first attemp to do everything backwards.
My objective is to try this experiement out and see if it yields better returns than what I have done in the past.

Welcome on-board and good luck with the journal, it has helped me a lot even though I treat it far too casually. Just a question - which of the 'Trading Experience: Advanced' or 'I have no real clue as to what I'm doing' is true? (I'm assuming the former ) It will be interesting to see if your no-plan meta-plan works ..

Best Wishes and Top Trades to you!

Travel Well

Goodluck to you HenryandSteen,
Trading instinct vs trading a plan is quite unique.
Look forward to following your trades.

James
