Do you keep a daily trading blog? Do you write what you’re feeling down on paper and marry those intentions and feelings to your trades and your habits?
Measuring your activity is a good way to begin improving your trading.
You can add a qualitative aspect of it also by calculating the sum total of all your trading activity each day.
Do you use Excel or or Google sheets or whatever you have available to document what you’re doing and why you’re doing it?
By the end of the week, you'll be able to see what you're earning per hour in your own trading. Your expected value, your “edge” will make itself manifest and evident in what you do.
Marry your feelings with your trading journal and you'll be able to determine what your time and efforts are worth fundamentally.
How effective and how efficient are you at what you're doing?
Trading is HARD but I can promise you that the most amazing thing ever is the moment when you know the variance between what you think you’re doing and what you are REALLY doing and that’s very valuable stuff.
Challenge yourself to always get the most insightful information you can on your own behavior.
Be brutally honest with yourself. No one else will do that for you and you don't want to mindfuck yourself into futility chasing an endeavor that isn’t working (and “working” means profitable)
Focus on what is controllable - and all that you can do is follow your rules and accept what you get. If you know that you do has an edge - then you know that all you must do is follow your rules and be patient as the profits appear.
