Follow through is a completely under rated skill. Many traders, me included, work so hard to get to a point that we forget what got us there. Here is a reminder of the definition of follow through:
follow-through – carrying some project or intention to full completion; “I appreciated his follow-through on his promise” mop up, windup, completion, culmination, closing – a concluding action.follow-through – the act of carrying a stroke to its natural completion; “his follow-through was straight down the line toward the target”; “squash can be dangerous if your opponent has a long follow-through”
There are two important things that make the follow through easier. Work efficiently as possible, follow through takes energy and it is often when you are most tired. And of course make it a habit. Get use to doing and pretty soon it will take very little energy.
My follow through is intended to bring me back to a neutral psychology and also understanding why I made money or lost money. It is the most important thing I can do after the trading day starts.
