The articles discuss topics of trading which include: emotional intelligence, trading journals (especially, but not limited to, the ones that document benefits of using Trade-Ideas), size management, P/L performance, and many other dimensions of the trading process - not just pre-trade analytics and idea generation.Downtown Trader Spreads the Word
