A matter of record: why good trading starts with good data

At Chasing Returns, we know that to be a good trader, you need to be a great analyst. And for that, you need up to date records that you can trust.

It is vital to keep accurate records of your trading results. Are you better on a certain day or with a particular product? Do you have more discipline in a low volatility market? How do you respond when you lose?

Show me a trader with good records and I’ll show you a good trader.
— Dr Alexander Elder, author of Trading for a Living
