Trading Journal: Updated Learnings & Guidelines
I have not performed anywhere close to what I projected back in July upon launch of the Trading Journal channel (see here, here, and here). My process correctly identified that a top was close a hand in July, but I didn’t take advantage as intended as a result of not appropriately managing profits into key tactical lows in August, September, and October. However, what came out of this period was a far more robust tactical trading framework that puts me in superb position to manage through what is likely to be a structural SPX bear market through 12/31/2025 (as I’ll write up about length in an upcoming Outlook piece).
Below is a rough sketch list of updated learnings and guidelines.
