Hi vvhg,

I tried the last version of the journal. First I managed to solve the previous bug which caused the import to crash. Now I am able to load the trades into the journal, but they are not accepted. I'll upload the new import version so that you can try that yourself:-)

We will need to find the way, how to format everything and accept the newly imported rows:-)

Here is the latest version of the ResultsImport.


Please use it in merging mode only (only append to existing journal). The embedded excel is probably not correct.

Exactly as I suspected. The new data is ( at least partially) outside the table.

I will play around with it later to see if the rows get accepted or deleted when I resize the table....

Exit strategy guide:

If you are always all in all out, 'always one target' is your setting

If you use up to two targets/exits you want to select 'up to two exits' In this case if you only enter one exit it will be calculated as an all in all out trade, if you enter two exits the trade will be calculated as a two exits trade.

Up to three targets works as above, calculated as entered.

Now the 'always two/three targets' options are calculated a bit differently. If you only enter one exit it will split that exit in two/three behind the scenes and allocate it to the different exits. This is done for the sole purpose of entering trades quicker, as all three stopped out at the same price only have to be entered once as opposed to thrice.


Hope that makes it a bit clearer, if not, just shout.

Well, you could use the average prices by entering eg exit1: =97.56+97.57*2 In this example two were filled at 97.57 and one one tick lower.
NOTE:You can always enter formulas on unprotected cells.

If you later change to scaling out just change to "up to two/three exits".

i know its a beta, but does the new instrument list need to be protected or no? also, will the transaction tab be copied from older journals that have the transaction tab, like, from 3.2 on wards?

Everything should be protected, so I forgot that, sry.

Yes I have designed the migration in a way that everything will migrate (presumed it is there in the first place. So if migrating from older versions that don't have a transactions tab, the tool will simply skip the transactions tab migration.). It's good old fire and forget style....

I have sent the PM... hope it arrived.

I am having difficulties to add a new row to enter the trade manually though. Am I doing something wrong (I run at the end of the last line and new line is added below, but it is locked and I cannot write anything in it)
