When you have a trade plan, it helps you know in advance what to do as the markets are moving. Sometimes, the markets are moving quickly and it does not allow much time to think about each trade. 

We use a simple trade plan that include what we call "trade models". The trade models help us understand the pattern that is taking place or about to take place. With the trade models, it sets up expectations to how to enter and exit the market. 

We Start with the Cycle direction, then pick from the trade models, trade entry, and profit target and stops to use for each trade in advance. 

Feel free to go through the models and if you only get one great idea you can use, then it may be worth your time.
