How does it work. @MARANATHA the IG diary is incorporated into the IG calendar and is linked to your new platform account history so if you open the diary and click a date any trades you made on that day can be viewed and notes and charts can be  added. A diary is essential to the learning process and a place to assess performance and plan ahead.

Though the IG diary will suit many I myself prefer a spreadsheet format where I can see all my trades listed in one place, where running totals are automatically calculated as well as comments and charts added. Here is a link to download the free Trading Journal V2 (about half way down the page). It has many drop down boxes and you can choose which columns to fill in or change them to suit.

Exactly what caseynotes said - was unsure if you wanted help with functionality or specifically with what sort of things people make on their notes. Would be happy to share an example of mine if you’re curious... 

I would be pleased to see how yours looks!!!

Thanks a lot sir, I will give the spreadsheet a try.

The key is to track the win rate verses the risk reward ratio (both autocalc'd in the overview page). Any change for good or bad to your strategy will quickly be revealed and that is really the whole point of it. If you're not measuring what you're doing you will get lost and be walking round in circles.

Any plot above the red curve is a winning strategy (see pic). I don't bother filling out the money aspect, just the boxes needed to produce those two factors, plus the comments section for the trade and add the chart.

    • US DOLLAR TALKING POINTS: The US Dollar has dropped by as much as 3.3% from the high that was set last Wednesday and many are asking if the USD has topped. Given how aggressively overbought the greenback had become, this retracement looks to be a correction in the trend with no evidence yet of anything larger. However – price is approaching some major supports and performance around those levels will be key for determining near-term strategy. Of particular importance is the fact that the US Dollar is a composite of global currencies so the bigger question is when sell-offs in EUR/USD or GBP/USD might return and, in a related item, how will USD/JPY hold up with the pair pegged to the 145 level thought to be the line-in-the-sand for Japan’s Ministry of Finance?
