5 Tips For Part Time Traders – Become A Successful Fulltime Trader

We all know what a drag a day job can be. When you come home at night you barely have energy left to talk to your partner, let alone start up your trading platform and pull yourself together in order to have the patience and discipline to make good trades. Additionally, all the time you spend at your day job is opportunity cost – and the currency is called trading experience. It’s a vicious circle.

Without a day job you do not have an income, but with a day job you do neither have enough resources nor time at your disposal to become a profitable trader. And how the hell is a trading journal going to help you with all this, because it takes even more of your trading time away? Well, whether you want to keep your day job and make trading an additional source of income or you want to go fulltime one day, Edgewonk will help you reach your goals in trading. How? Let’s take a look.

All Your Edgewonk Metrics And Numbers Explained

Edgewonk is much more than ‘just’ a regular trading journal. Most trading journals, especially the free alternatives on the web, are data graveyards where you just get a summary of all your trading data blended together into meaningless figures.

Edgewonk is the first trader development suite where we combine the most important journaling features with our unique trader development tools: analyze trade management, review your emotions, simulate future account developments and actively improve the way you set trades and your orders.

Edgewonk comes with all the important statistics a trader needs to know, but then we take it one step further. By leveraging the tagging-function you can create a personalized journaling and review routine. Start by tagging all your trades based on the setup you took, but don’t stop there. Utilize the unique Custom Statistics and create personal categories and tag each trade with your own descriptions. Furthermore, the entry, exit and trade management functionality allows you to analyze each part of your trading separately. Only then, reviewing your performance and trading data provides real value.

To help you understand your trading data in Edgewonk better, we have compiled a list with all the metrics and statistics in your trading journal:



9 Tips That Will Help You Deal With Losses Like A Pro Trader

You probably know that you can’t win all your trades. But understanding that a winrate of 100% isn’t achievable and knowing how to effectively deal with losses when they occur are two very different things.

A baseball player who strikes 30% is considered world class, a basketball player who scores 45% is one of the greatest of all time and the best soccer player in the world has a shot accuracy of less than 40%.

In trading, traders go broke with winrates as high as 50% or above. Theoretically, a winrate of 50% should be more than enough for any trader to achieve all the success he is after. However, not knowing how to deal with losses is what breaks traders and it’s one of the main reason why traders struggle so much.
