A Trading Checklist is a series of questions that Traders will ask themselves prior to entering a trade. It will include Technical Analysis entry criteria, in addition to any additional questions that the individual Trader feels are appropriate prior to making any entry decision.
A robust Trading Checklist is an integral aspect of becoming a consistently profitable Trader and should be designed to ensure nothing "slips through the cracks". The actual list should be continually evolving and improving as the Trader gathers more data about his/her trading results. It should be designed to limit exposure to mistakes or oversights as much as possible
