As the old adage goes, if you forget your mistakes, you’re doomed to repeat them. The quicker you learn from your past successes and failures, the better your chances of becoming a successful trader. As you finish your trading day, take the time to evaluate how you did, and make some notes about what you did wrong and what you did right.
In this chapter, we talk about how to evaluate your trading and keep a journal you can use as a tool to hone your skills and improve your strategies. We also talk about how to take advantage of your strengths and get control of your weaknesses.
