I have gone through several versions of the kind of thing I post when I write up a new trade. I am going through another one at present (which is why I haven’t written up my EUR/USD trade — I must do that). My process is becoming less technically-driven and the real question when going into a trade is now: is there a trend?

For that reason, the important thing to write up is why I think there is a trend. So I am going to post fewer charts (which seem to make people think my trading is all about technicals, which it very much is not) and more analysis. When a trade fails because a trend turns around, I will be able to go back and see where I went wrong.
