@ DionysusToast made NT and excel integration some time back. See link here:

https://futures.io/elite-circle/7307-dionysus-xmas-present-ninja-excel.html

SD

It looks very interesting, I will look into that a bit more closely, but I fear that this would be beyond the horizon of a typing monkey like me

Another thought; a new data grid / form within NT could be created and setup with the exact data fields and format you need. Then have it form export the data to CSV file. After that a import function could be created in excel that would populate the fields in the journal with the data.

Sounds simple enough.. Right??

SD

This would be extremely helpful! Changing the grid could make things a lot easier! I would also love the option to not display points but ticks (as points are rather useless in a list with different instruments which have different ticks per point!) also splitting date and time of day into two fields could be interesting....

Thanks @rickr,
as I do see a few things not working correctly that are working on my end, could you perhaps PM me your file so I could investigate?

Might be need for a Help tab in the journal.

Mike

Due to time constraints, please do not PM me if your question can be resolved or answered on the forum.

Need help?
1) Stop changing things. No new indicators, charts, or methods. Be consistent with what is in front of you first.
2) Start a journal and post to it daily with the trades you made to show your strengths and weaknesses.
3) Set goals for yourself to reach daily. Make them about how you trade, not how much money you make.
4) Accept responsibility for your actions. Stop looking elsewhere to explain away poor performance.
5) Where to start as a trader? Watch this webinar and read this thread for hundreds of questions and answers.
6)
Help using the forum? Watch this video to learn general tips on using the site.

Mike

There is a readme tab, but that only covers small parts of the journal. I have to work on that. I also plan on sticking in more in-cell comments. To be honest I hate this kind of tedious work, probably the reason the readme is still rudimentary. I think it is time that I finally get on with it....

The points you mentioned:
If I don't answer a point, it is either fixed in the new version or I first have to look at your file.

1. Rules block on overview tab, input is comment on journal tab (dropdown list)
2. Scratch trades are shown as losers (I am a negative person)
3.on instrument list 0 and - is the same, this is only formatting.
4. on journal tab efficiency, see comment in heading or readme.

Beta20


Non exhaustive changelog:

changed a few format things
added a few comments on journal tab
updated the readme slightly
allowed for zero mae calculation (RR calc on stop efficiency tab for zero is calculated with 1 mae to circumvent Div/0 error)
Pivot tables do not display blank cells and the heading anymore (changed to dynamic range)
on Overview tab exit 2&3 only display when there is at least one exit in the column 2 respectively 3

That's about it...I think...more or less...

vvhg

P.S. I really could use help with the b&&%y readme, haha
