Hi, thanks for this amazing excel. I am trying to start use it, but I am having problems. When I use the 2nd row in the journal, my results are out of sense. I tried in different excels versions and i have the same problem.

Thank you in advance

There are some hidden columns in the spreadsheet where other entries are stored - but they appear to be entries related to a different instrument.

See the picture with the cells circled in red.

If you unhide those columns and remove those values it should work.

Try adjusting the value in column AZ (Point Value) and BA (Tick Size). The spreadsheet uses those to give you PnL so by varying those numbers you should get the result you want in Forex as well.
