Trading journal app

Hi everyone,

I’m new to Forex trading although I’ve been swing trading equities since June 2013. I’ve been spread betting up to this point but I’m intrigued by open source platforms so I’ve decided to open a Tradable account. Having recently completed a one year review of my trading performance with my mentor, I’ve come to the conclusion that I need to improve my trading efficiency (for lack of a better term). One thing I’m really regretting is not keeping a trading journal which I could use to work out where my trades went wrong i.e. entered too early or market reversal. So I’ve teamed up with Tradable’s in house developer to come up with an app that helps me keep track of my losing trades without having to mess around with Word docs etc.

I was just wondering if anyone had come across a similar app on another platform? Or are there any resources (other than the excellent info provided by the School of Pips) worth checking out that might help me work out what to build into the app?

Hello Keith McG,

thank you for this; I got curious, and I found the following:

It seems like a good app. I am going to download it now; I will review it at some point.

Cheers and good luck with your development.

I installed it…

It looks good…

It only costs £1.63… Money well spent.

Worth Trying.

Thanks PipMeHappy, I’ll have a look.

Does it integrate with your platform? One of the things I’m trying to avoid is manually entering all the trade details.

Let me know how it goes.

No it does not integrate…however, it lets you put in chart screenshots :slight_smile:

For some traders handwritten journal is working just fine so may be you should try that.

That’s how I’m keeping a journal at the moment but I find the manual transfer of info, taking screenshots of charts etc quite time consuming.
