Welcome to

Welcome, Guest!

This forum was established to help traders (especially futures traders) by openly sharing indicators, strategies, methods, trading journals and discussing the psychology of trading.

We are fundamentally different than most other trading forums:
  • We work extremely hard to keep things positive on our forums.
  • We do not tolerate rude behavior, trolling, or vendor advertising in posts.
  • We firmly believe in openness and encourage sharing. The holy grail is within you, it is not something tangible you can download.
  • We expect our members to participate and become a part of the community. Help yourself by helping others.

You'll need to register in order to view the content of the threads and start contributing to our community. It's free and simple, and we will never resell your private information.

Trading Cash Flow Spreadsheet

I uploaded a spreadsheet to use for planning how much you can withdraw from your trading account on a monthly basis based on your daily profit goal and number of days trading each month.

It includes a very rough tax calculator... (very rough).

For a business planning cash flow, you would need to add in your trading costs (data feed, charting package, fund for equipment replacement, etc.) as deductions against yield. You could also add in interest on unused funds if your broker does that.

You can create various scenarios for yourself based on "expected" results, "worst case", "best case".

Hopefully it will help you create realistic expectations of what you can expect to withdraw and still keep your account balance at an appropriate level.
