How often should I use PlayMaker?

At the start of every trading day, you should log into PlayMaker to see your risk parameters. They are calculated daily based on your balance at midnight on your closed positions. It is important to adjust your size if your account gets smaller, to protect your trading capital.

While live trading, you should keep your Discipline Monitor open, so that you can be alerted if your trading plan might be at risk of a breach.

At the end of every trading day, week, and month, review your Discipline score.
