Posting here for those interested:

Greg from Tradervue will be here on Wednesday, September 26th @ 4:30 PM Eastern US. I've asked Greg to talk to us about journaling. He will be giving a detailed presentation on the metrics to record and analyze and how to make your journal best work for you.

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.

The bug should be gone now, no other changes since 4.1. There are Beta versions with extended commissions calculations which should better suit some other financial products.
I would appreciate some feedback if I should include that in the next release...

Hello Vvhg

Wow! nice work....I just downloaded your work and start to look at it

I'm working with Forex. I see that that I may need to modify the sheet to reflect the Tick value. I adapt my position sizing for every order with the #pip that i risk

Does anybody use it with Interactive Broker. I will try to work with a code to download order / position data from TWS.

Have a great Weekend.

Hello again

Question: Importing old data

Maybe a dummy question. What is the format of the file . I see that it look for a file. I will work to adapt IB data with the file.

Does-it have a protection for double entry in case I import data that had been already installed in the sheet.

Martin.

PS. Hope I'm clear enough with my not so good English

The migration tool is only to migrate an old journal (from this thread) to a new (empty) one.

You probably are looking for the import tool from @petrmac. Unfortunately I am not involved in its development, and it seems that it is not being developed any further.

There is a tab labeled "Instruments" you can add currency pairs there, then everything is calculated correctly when you select it on the journal tab.

For who trade stocks and have a fixed commision rate, for example i pay 5USD per lot of stocks I buy and not per share. How do I change this?


Thank you for an excellent tool!!

Current Version ?

@vvhg

When I down load Version "4.3" (which I believe to be the latest) . . .

And I open the Overview Page it says it is version "v3.2Beta50" . . .

Is this an incorrect posting on the Summary Page . . . or is the link for download giving me an older version ?

Thx for this great tool . . .

Rick

I believe it is likely the correct version and I forgot to change it on the overview tab. To be sure I will check as soon as possible.

Great work on this Journal.

Has anyone in this thread used Openoffice or Libra office to open the document.
Unfortunately I use Open Office which does not open the file and have tried to convert it to xls or xlsx but then I get an error 508 on some input tabs or Macro errors.


I can view it with the free Microsoft office viewer but can't save it after changes.
