The trade worksheet helps put you in control of your trading. Calculating your profits and losses ahead of time lets you know if the risk you are taking is a risk worth taking. This is how you gain control of your trading. You become prescient on whether the opportunity you are taking is a good one or not. This puts you ahead of the majority of traders who simply fly by the seat of their pants.
Maintaining this information lets you know what you are thinking and feeling when you enter and exit trades and lets you know if your trading tools are working properly. It also shows you if you are exiting too quickly or if you are going against your trading plan.
The children also compete locally, state wide, and on the national level. The experience is invaluable. There are also other mathematical games and clubs that children can join that will help develop skills and are fun. Parents should contact their local school district or state level office of Gifted and Talented Programs for this information.
