How do I know is my current trading or investing strategy still working for me?
Simple. I track, measure, and visualise my performance.

Jan 2008 Bloody Red!!!
Aug 2008 Bloody Red!!!
Sep 2008 Shit Red!

As of now, 2008 is the only year that I was in Red!
What did I do in Nov 2008?

I also stopped monthly review and switch to quarterly review and meeting yearly goal instead of meeting monthly target prior to Nov 2008.
