I did a couple very stupid things around the 10th. It was a lesson WELL learned. Will do my best to not repeat that mess. It cost me over 6%. It was not that I was wrong and a stop got hit. I was trading poorly, and deserved to get taken. But, I saw it, corrected and moved on.

I don't know why it is curving down and the end, I'm in profit 2.3% today. Oh, probably because the 28th hasn't closed yet. I guess I'll have to do the "real" one tomorrow.

It's hard for me to do a journal because I stopped using NinjaTrader and DeskTop Pro doesn't have any way of notating trades like NT so it's harder. Hopefully they will add that soon. I would like to post some stats here and possibly screen captures from time to time.

I'm working on finding an Excel template or some other way to visualize my trades like in NinjaTrader. Big Mike, are you aware of any?

In the Period from March 1 to March 18:

I'm guessing a total of 24-28 hours in the market.
232 Trades
589 Lots
13% Increase in Equity
5.5% Maximum Drawdown
<1% Average Drawdown

It's 9AM PST on Friday. Time to sit on my hands until next Monday... But I want to take a trade!!!

If I recall, you might ask @Hapster about that type of Excel workbook (one where a chart is created). I think he has those tools.
