Keeping a journal of trades and writing about them

journalKeeping a journal of trades and writing about them forced me to define, examine, and analyze my trading paradigm and algorithm like never before. I had to systematically think through what it is I do in my trading operations and why. I had to carefully recall the steps I took to reach my current approach to trading. I reaffirmed myself in many of my trading practices. In some areas, however, I now believe I have the opportunity to make my trading plan more efficient and effective. Peter Brandt
