Is this the best Trading Journal for Notion? (Template Walkthrough)

Learn more about my latest Trading Journal Template for Notion:

In the last couple of years, I have invested in tons of different assets:

Bitcoin, Stocks, Currencies, and even Gold and Silver.

Some of my investments paid off, others didn’t do so well. However, my main problem before I discovered Notion was that I didn’t have a good overview of how my investments were performing.

This was because I tracked them all over the place: Some of them in apps, others inside of Google Sheets.

Basically, I had no idea how rich or poor I actually was. Just when I started using Notion for my personal life and business did it occur to me that I could use this app for tracking all of my financial investments inside of one dashboard.

As a result, the idea for the Finance Compass Template 1.0 was borne.

The Finance Compass was a good template for portfolio tracking. However, it wasn’t suited for day trading.

This was the reason why I totally revised the template in the summer of 2022.

I wanted to transform it into the best Notion template for day traders. And according to the feedback I have received so far, I did succeed with my mission.

In this post, I will give you a quick introduction to the Finance Compass Template 2.0.
