We just released a new update for Edgewonk in mid-October and here is what is new:
Do you like challenges and enjoy working hard for your success or are you one of those people who try to look for shortcuts and avoid solving hard problems? There are mainly two types of people when it comes to the attitude towards progress, improvement and success: growth and fixed mindset people.
Most people are not aware which group they belong to, but being self-aware of your personal mindset and attributes is essential for success – not only in trading but in life as well.
In this article, we will help you identify which group you belong to and how you can move forward and start improving.
Checklist are used in different professions to standardize procedures and to minimize the potential for errors. When someone is doing the same task repeatedly, it’s easy to get sloppy or not give it the seriousness it deserves when you believe that you know how to do it anyway.

When it comes to journaling and recording trading performance, there are two types of formats a trader can choose from. Both have their pros and cons and in this article, we want to help you understand the differences so that you can find what is best for you.

Most traders don’t keep a real journal, but what they have is a diary. Traders with a trading diary mostly use Word, Evernote or just a physical notepad to write down thoughts, feelings or ideas about their trades.
In its essence, the idea of a diary journal is good but the execution is usually less than optimal and there are no benefits from keeping a written journal if the notes just disappear in your drawer and you never look at the again.
If you want to access the same journal from different machines, you can do that by using DropBox.
Important: Do NOT use any other cloud drive service such as oneDrive, Google Drive etc. Those platforms are known to be unstable and erase complete Edgewonk journals.
In this article I will show you step by step how to get your Edgewonk cloud-ready.
