Just a suggestion; I have been reading the metrics journal and find Big Mikes metric journal the most to my liking.
I posted a Sierra Chart 'spreadsheet for auto trading' in the Downloads section and then realized that not everyone is familiar with the technical details of Sierra Chart, so I included a 'how to' for updating your Sierra Chart folder, how to modify what I had submitted and dangerous things you should not do because of how Sierra Chart works.
Would you spend some time to put together a 'how to use' list for this spreadsheet. Something that would include Post #13, #88, #119. A brief overview of what each tab is for, which data to enter (is date yy/mm/dd or American mm/dd/yy) and maybe some reference links to Expectancy, MAE, MFE. Maybe some limitations, for example: is Instrument List restricted to 8 entries? Since you are posting using RAR, this could be easily included once it is done. B.T.W - I do not mean a tutorial on Excel, as this can be found with Google, just some guidance on using this wonderful tool. I know MAE and MFE are well documented in futures.io (formerly BMT) and in Investopedia - just a suggestion. If not, I am sure there is enough in this thread to figure it out.
Opps - I see that I should have read to post #122 - perhaps a Word document in the RAR file with a summary of the 'read me' would be useful

Reason: bit of an apology for not reading journal to end

thank you VVHG
with the great exchange between you and Madlyfe, I was able to comb some tips from this thread and put into my own readme. I include it as a word file. I look forward to using Journal 2, thank you for all of your developments in this project.

Sure - go ahead
I had experience with Excel 2002, so was unfamiliar with many of the features you discuss. I viewed the tutorial video and found out Excel 2010 is so much better.
I include an updated version - just a few tips on how to use Excel 2010.
