Hi guys,

It is my pleasure to announce our 327th webinar event and welcome Peter Davies @ Jigsaw Trading & Journalytix on Thursday, December 6th @ 4:30 PM Eastern US.

The title of this event is "Trader Improvement - Implementing a Practical Process to Improve", and bullet points include:

- How-to compete, train, and improve your weak spots
- Stop re-inventing yourself – instead work on sustainable incremental improvements
- Best practices of trade journaling using Journalytix
- Trade tagging and analytical reporting/analysis
- How-to properly do a Daily/Weekly/Monthly recap, with a focus on improving and understanding outliers
- Live Q&A session during the event



With any sport (and a lot of professional endeavors), keeping your edge and improving is something you do separately from competing. You compete, you train, you improve your weak spots.

For a lot of traders, there is no process of improvement. Retail traders tend to be either clicking buy and sell OR looking for a new way to trade. Very few people are engaged in finding and correcting their weak spots. Rather, they keep re-inventing themselves.

For some people - like the trader we'll discuss at the start of this webinar, they are closer to success than they think, they just aren't taking steps to locate and rectify their weak spots.

In this webinar, we'll look at the weak spots of one trader, how we found them and how we'll move forward. We'll see the potential benefits of ironing out those weak spots.

This won't be the end game for this trader, once we iron-out these weak spots, we'll find a different area of focus.

In the process, we'll take a look at best practices for getting the most from your trade journal on Journalytix.

We'll look at this from 2 perspectives - how to operate the tools & how to put information into the tools, so you get the most out of them.

For example, we'll look at methods for tagging trades in different ways, so that you get the most from the analytics. We'll look at how to focus on specific issues in your trading and understand if you are improving in that respect or not.

We'll take a look at the daily/weekly/monthly review process and how to focus outlying days, so you understand whether or not that's something to consider moving forward.

There will be plenty of time for Q&A in the session.

If you are looking to make the most out of your trade journal and in turn your trading, this webinar is a must see.

Great webinar!

Very interesting on how to have a good journal.
Love the hashtags, the #FOMO is for sure the BIG one

I confess that I don't have much patience for journaling but you are indeed make things easier for us.
It's almost impossible now to complain how hard it is to keep a journal.

Thank you for bring this tool to the market.
For sure the best app for 2018.

If I become half a percent smarter each year, I'll be a genius by the time I die

Hi All



As the market was closed during the demo - here's the process of entering notes with/without voice dictation.

Cheers

Pete

Thanks, Pete, for the webinar.

I use journalytix in my (almost) everyday trading as it makes my life so much easier. And even though most of it is still demo, it is a great tool.
The most useful features for me are:
Economic news pop-ups
Journal the trade pop-ups
Daily, weekly, monthly performance charts

To be honest, I have always been horrible at keeping a journal. I had several Excel versions but none provided enough insight into what I was doing badly or well. I tried other journals as well but I have always stopped using them as it all seemed too much work not to mention journals written by hand...
Beta testing of Journalytix came at times when I was thinking of what to do with my trading. Since then I am trying to overcome my monkey mind and do stuff that is not always comfortable including having a journal and reviewing it.

The first thing that I have soon started to really appreciate is the pop-up “request” to journal a trade. At first it was annoying but then I realized it does several things:
At first, it helps me clarify whether I really want to be in the trade (I have always struggled with FOMO. It does not prevent me from taking FOMO trades but it helps me realize that I am doing it.)
It helps me remember the criteria of my setups.
It makes me think of trade management and sometimes prevents me from second-guessing.
The added option of talking about my trades instead of writing notes elevated it even higher 😊.

I also like the performance charts with various criteria and filters. I know it sounds a bit silly but reviewing all the colors during my daily, weekly or monthly reviews satisfies my sight. And yes, it sometimes reveals behavior patterns (not always, some of them are not easy to spot) which direct me where dig deeper and see what results such patterns bring.

Also, adding the hashtag seems great (it is new to me – learned from the webinar) and I will definitely use it.

I do like journalytix complex yet organized nature. I think I am not using it to its full potential but it still serves its purpose.

H.
