FAQ

How is Trading Consistently any different from any other platform?

Most trading platforms are simple journals with some added statistical functions. While this is nice, it doesn’t necessarily improve your trading results. The Trading Consistently platform is not only a trade journal but its also based on behavioural psychology and when used correctly can help you prevent mistakes, improve your discipline, manage your psychology.

What studies is it based on?

The TradingConsistently platform was built around the same principals that underpin one of the most disciplined professions in the world - Airline pilots. Pilots routinely use checklists as a means to plan for the flight ahead and make good aeronautical decisions. According to the Aeronautical Decision Making report from the U.S. Department of Transport Research and Innovative Technology Administration one of the ultimate ‘antidotes’ to poor decision making is through a ‘personal checklist’ which encompasses all factors of checking the plane as well as their psychological state. The TradingConsistently platform is designed to incorporate both your trading criteria as a series of checklists but also manage your psychology through reminders and/or trading affirmations. By filling in your checklist each time BEFORE you place your trade you are ensuring you are following your plan with discipline and consistency. After a series of 100 consistently executed trades you will learn the true profitability of your trading system. Only then can you judge if your system is effective or not.

Our Trading reminders/affirmations is a powerful tool to abolish bad trading habits. No other trading journal to our knowledge contains this powerful feature. Research has shown that when viewing the reminders/affirmations continuously over minimum 21 days traders can improve their cognition, problem solving skills and eventually their behaviour even when under chronically stressed individuals.
