I resisted the idea of creating a trading plan for so long...
but the moment I finally came up with my first trading plan, I felt much better.
First, I no longer had to keep everything in my head as I used to do. Second, I had clear guidelines concerning what I was supposed to do.
The problem: that trading plan took 30 days to write and was huge. It was very hard for me to go back in that plan to check something.
A couple months ago, I came up with the idea of simplifying my plan on a single sheet of paper. The truth is, I've always been a fan of tracking checklists for their simplicity, but I wanted to bring the concept further.
As soon as I completed my One-Page Trading Plan, I posted it on my trading desk. I has made a huge difference. Instead of having a set of entry rules, I have everything I need to see on that plan.
In episode 45 of the Desire To Trade Podcast, I share about my experience with trading plans and tell you precisely how to create a powerful one-page trading plan.
