Yes. You could try the whole page (it should work, I think), and if that doesn't work then try column by column.

this time around i did it column by column, and it worked perfectly.. now the only problem left is on sat the TF where 765.90 = 765.9 in the journal..

Please register on futures.io to view futures trading content such as post attachment(s), image(s), and screenshot(s).


also i think the internal calcs sheet should be hidden by default.

TF seems to be right as tick size is 0.1 on your Inst list (see screenshot).

how would you go about making the TF, GC, CL etc. have two decimal places?

As decimal places are now determined by tick size CL would have two decimal places, the others mentoned would have not though.

The only way to work around that is to have a cloumn in the inst list of how many deimal places to show...
What do you think?

i am totally cool with that.. we could maybe expand the default inst list too so that way its already done for people, and they can just delete what they don't want instead of having to go in and add them causing more confusion? anyways yes i like the decimal idea..

looks like awhile since anybody posted here.
Questions
1. column O - is green but it is calcuated automatically, what does the up green arrow mean, if anything
2. Column U - what is column U - Bench mark for
3.
4. I see there is specific logic for VWAP value - is this complicated
4.1 is adding another column (say after VWAP) going to throw out all of the other calculations (not suggesting to do this, just wondering on how flexible this is)
5. I added method - Crossover - I entered 1 trade into journal using Crossover - then went to Pivot Table and only found S/R and Fade Channel listed.
6. Overview - found some invalid fields filled with ######
6.1 Average Net Profit (exit 1 and exit 2)

1. Indicates above/below vwap
2. see readme here
4. Sorry, didn't get your point, what do you mean exactly?
4.1.Short aswer: Yes!
5.There are very likely some filters applied to the pivot tables, make sure to also select crossover method there.
6. Have you entered any exits 2&3?
