If you have read some of those books written by successful traders, you will know that keeping track of your trades is one of the important activities that you must do in order to be successful in trading. I guess the main reason for doing so is that you know whether you are doing good or you should stay off trading for good.

I have sort of made it a point to blog my trades so that I will not forget about it like how I would when placing a bet at the casino. With online trading nowadays, it can get dastardly easy to just fire and forget when it comes to trading. So by making it a point to blog every trade, suddenly, it’s not so easy to trade anymore because you have to sit through the whole strategy and come up with at least 3 coherent paragraphs of why you are doing a particular trade.

You must be wondering why this crazy guy keeps blogging about his options trades as though anyone cared to know. Why not just keep a notebook or something.  

True, the world may not care but because if I somehow think that they actually cared, I take more responsibility in updating my trade diary. This blog begins life as some sort of a diary or journal to keep track of my trades. Well, initially, I thought no one will ever read my blog anyway but realised that it is not the case when I got an email from one of my readers. Moreover, my handwriting sucks and somehow, using WordPress software, every word I write turns out to look so good in those beautiful themes that they provide.

So in the end, it actually became ‘fun’ to keep a note of my trades. Yep. There you go. This is just a diary of my trades and if you intend to follow any of the strategies that I recommend in my posts, please bear in mind the following important paragraph.
