Quotes for reinforcing key ideas and a dose of inspiration.

  • “I found assessing my daily stress, energy and mood to be very
    valuable for prompting a think about my state in which to trade. More importantly, they also caused me to think why they were what they were. Why was stress low? Why was energy high? Or the other way around, of course.”

  • “Performing at your best is something that can be learned. Once acquired it still needs a diary/monitoring to make sure it is sustained. I really liked the trading performance scorecard, with the 8 factors to assess myself against each week, and the daily sheets are great - writing down my observations, evaluations, planning was particularly helpful.”

  • "I really enjoyed the consistency of staying in tune with my psychology. Writing things down brings awareness to it which really helped me. The flow of the journal works really well, and at no point did I feel a burden on my time or energy like I have in the past with some note taking exercises I have set myself.”
