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.

charting trades

Hi All!

I'm a little unsavy in the world of spreadsheets, but believe they can be useful. Does anyone know how
to chart their trades with a spreadsheet?

More than having the trade statistics, I'd like to chart wins/losses and add a 20 trade moving average so I can chart my trading.

I downloaded the portfolio.xls from the other thread and bmt trading journal.xlsx, but have no idea how to do charting and add a moving average.

Hi lsubeano

I too am not that hot with excel/spreadsheets but I currently use this trading tool: Trading Journal Spreadsheet - Trade Tracking
which allows me to have the data without the initial learning of excel.

I am pretty sure that if you're not able to modify it yourself (which you can) the guys will assist you.
Hope this helps.

Good trading
