Direct from the desk of Dane Williams.




When I first sat down at my desk this morning, I had it in my mind that I wanted to be short the SPI200 and the S&P500.

God Dane, what the fuck is wrong with you? You know that stocks only go up!

"Trump! Trump! Trump!" - Right, @trumpman?

After once again failing to make money the last time I tried to short the S&P 500, I've somewhat learnt my lesson.

So don't worry team, I'm not going to go down that path again today and instead pivot today's blog a little bit.

Using Your LeoFinance Blog as a Trading Journal

Before I came to LeoFinance, my journaling and trade review system was sporadic at best.

Most of the time I just straight up couldn't be bothered, because the benefits were initially hard to see.

I knew that I needed to journal my trading and more importantly the psych behind the setups, but found it so hard to maintain.

Enter LeoFinance.


Advantages of using LeoFinance to Journal your Trades

  1. You get paid: Extra motivation is always nice.
  2. You're held accountable: The community will let you know if you're a fool if you can't see it yourself.
  3. It's social: LeoFinance is a social finance and trading community after all.

The bottom line is that If you can't convince yourself of a setup when you start writing, then you definitely shouldn't be taking the trade!

Just take today's stupid indices shorts that I decided to let slide because I couldn't come up with the words or charts to show why I should take the trade.

Best of probabilities to you,

Dane.
