Woke up this morning and wandering what would be the items you would include in your trade journal.

Here is some of mine,

General

Pair Name
Entry time
Exit Time
Trade Length

More Detail

Stop Lose Target
Profit Target
Profit Amount
After Thought

Weekly Summary

Please advice some of your pro tips and advice if you don't mind me asking 😭😭😭

Thanks. 😁

Don't allow yesterday's success to lull you into today's complacency, for this is the great foundation of failure.

Hi! My advise is to not make too many details/columns in trading journals. You have to make sure its quite
lightweight to update. Myfxbook stores details of the trade anyway.

I would put there pair/SL/Profit-target/Risked-amount along with a reason for the trade, and afterthought which
should also describe/rate how well you followed your tradeplan..

Trading for me has been successful whenever I have kept my work up-to-date AND also followed my trading plans.
