045: The Power Of A One-Page Trading Plan

The Power Of A One-Page Trading Plan (1)

The Power Of A Simple One-Page Trading Plan

I resisted the idea of creating a trading plan for so long…

but the moment I finally came up with my first trading plan, I felt much better.

First, I no longer had to keep everything in my head as I used to do. Second, I had clear guidelines concerning what I was supposed to do.

The problem: that trading plan took 30 days to write and was huge. It was very hard for me to go back in that plan to check something.

A couple months ago, I came up with the idea of simplifying my plan on a single sheet of paper. The truth is, I've always been a fan of checklists and tracking tools for their simplicity, but I wanted to bring the concept further.

As soon as I completed my One-Page Trading Plan, I immediately posted it on my trading desk. I has made a huge difference. Instead of having a set of entry rules, I have everything I need to see on that plan.

In episode 45 of the Desire To Trade Podcast, I share about my experience with trading plans and tell you precisely how to create a powerful one-page trading plan.

What is discussed in this podcast episode?

  • I used to hate the idea of having a trading plan.
  • Most people you see online recommend a trading plan that looks like a business plan…it never worked entirely for me when it comes to executing.
  • How to create your one-page trading plan:
    • There are a few parts:
      • Vision (where you want to go with trading)
      • Context (time frames, trading times, instruments)
      • Trading strategy (signal, entry, exit)
      • Support (money management, implementation plan)
      • Examples (at the back of it)
  • Making a plan isn't enough, you must make it visible!
