Sierra Chart Excel Journal

I created an Excel Journal for Sierra that can accept trades exported from the Trade Activity Log. It'll give you Cum P&L, Pts Per day, Expectancy, Win%, Long v Short P&L, P&L By Entry Hour, P&L By Day of Week, Avg Win and Loss Size in Pts. I have it populated with some old Sim trades so you can see how it looks.

drw,
Hello. Do you still have this spreadsheet journal available? The link doesn't work.

Or does anyone have something similar?

Thanks

If you find it, please attach it to the forum so this doesn't happen again.

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)

I am not the thread starter but I did download the file and as he has not yet responded I thought I would upload it myself.

Exporting to this journal

I am on Office 365 and the most recent excel.

I cannot upload to this file from SC to save my life. I am exporting from trade log and saving as csv and trying to cut and paste in the data section of the journal. Doesnt line up or even come close to what the example is showing. I tried importing from excel from the file saved and still comes out all jumbled.

I know this is an old thread, but just seeing if anyone can give me a tip on importing trades from SC into this fine spreadsheet.

Cheers

After you save the CSV file, open it in Excel, Using the Delimited option, with Tabs as the delimiter. Select columns A through U and copy/paste into cell N1 of SC_Journal.xls. To make the date/time formats match, select columns P and Q and right click >Format Cells...choose custom and then m/d/yyyy h:mm and add ":ss" to it so it looks like "m/d/yyyy h:mm:ss" then click OK.
