Hello Traders,

For 2016 I would like to wish all of you discipline and patience in your trading!

Greetings!

I have written in the past about the importance of keeping a trading journal.

Many benefits for doing so. From the mental / emotional aspect to the bottom line of keeping notes on market behavior which you can use down the road.

A good example is trading on the last trading day of the month ( example for me is that I dont run one of my systems for bonds on the last trading day of the month). Another example is behavior of markets ( look at stock index futures) on the first trading day of the month.
I think part of the reason for the unique market action ( not always but quite often) during these two days is the activity of large traders, CTA’s who need to report monthly performance, institutions who may need to establish longer term positions on the first of the month etc.
