Example Journal for Guidance

Hello All.
I see a lot of posts regarding Journaling and questions. I was once a nubie and asked the same questions. From support from others and tireless efforts I have created my own journal process. The important words are ‘my own’. Copying another’s work is alright but making it your own is most important.
Below is what I use to record my trades. I hope it helps guide someone to a greater understanding of what can be used.
*the images are screen images taken from the journal. All the sheets are linked together so that the information is useful on other pages. It has taken a lot of time of tweaking and still the layout is evolving. This is the beauty of my journal, it is an evolution. Even after these pages are posted it has changed based on new ideas that are being incorporated to the changing market.
**load the images below to read the text that goes along with the image.

Feel free to ask any questions you may have and I will help as much as I can.
