MAKE JOURNALING YOUR HABIT

Import and review your trades regularly (doing it at the weekends works the best). Don’t forget to include trade Screenshots (if you trade with DARA systems trade Screenshots are saved automatically). Review your performance to find the areas you need to improve and stop the mistakes.

As a professional trader and managing partner of a trading firm, I cannot take you seriously as a trader if you do not journal.
