Ah I wouldn't know how to write down a record when it's based on gut feeling as no two days are the same. I don't understand how you guys have set defined setups. But then again you guys are the profitable ones and I'm the utterly hopeless non-responder with an IQ of 7 so I'll just shut up
LOL ... I hear you Sam.
Re "Trading Plans" ........... The best trading plans are those derived from "experience".
Having to write down and test a myriad of mathematical possibilities to prove what may or may not work in the future has not been a method I have personally found productive
However ... Screwing up, then realizing why you screwed up (it took a while!) .... then trying "not to do the same thing next time" has proven to be the greatest trading plan I have found
On that note ..... To be successful ...... If you like Stocks, Paper trade ..... or if you like Futs/ Forex, Sim trade with dedication and honesty until you learn what does and doesn't work ...
In my own "very humble" opinion ..... Its best not to complicate things too much no matter what you are trading Cheers.
