All Top Traders Share this Crucial Habit

If you have been trading on E*TRADE for a while, but haven’t started making consistent profits, the best thing you can do today to stop losing money and improve your trading is to keep an E*TRADE trading journal.

“A trading journal is probably the most important, and most often neglected, tool in determining your success or failure in the market.”Toni Hansen, professional trader, educator, and author of 9 books.

Sure enough, keeping a journal requires discipline, and you may not see results overnight, but it’s what makes the difference between top traders and everybody else.

Every successful trader has a journal where they record their trading decisions and review their progress. That’s precisely how they became successful in the first place.

Why Keeping a Journal is Crucial to Making Your Breakthrough on E*TRADE

  • You have a clear record of all your trades. With an E*TRADE trading journal, it’s easy to go back and assess your past decisions to understand your mistakes and why you made them. Self-analysis is the key to improvement, and doing that is hard if you don’t have all your information organized in one place.
  • You will master trading psychology. A journal pushes you to develop discipline, accountability, and stick to your strategy. Plus, your notes will help you understand your emotions so you can better manage them.
  • You will discover your trading edge. Make the data work for you and find out where you are losing money and where you have an edge over the market. With a trading journal, it’s easy to uncover trends and adjust your strategies for better results.
