It also allows you to identify areas of your trade plan that can be improved. If you trading according to your plan but underperforming it can show you what area of your plan may need adjustments.

There are sample trade plans you can download as a guide. Identify your edges, build your rules around them, write it down in your trade plan and do your best to stick to it.

We have given an overview here of some of our favorite platforms.
Further There are links to sites to help you compare brokers. When you get to the point you are trading with a mentor they will likely be able to give you some guidance in this area.
