I have been using Edgewonk for almost a year now. It has certainly helped me improve as a trader. The 2.x version now allows import from NT8.

There were a few annoying defects in the initial Excel based version, but they have ironed them out. The product is fairly stable now.

I place 2 to 4 trades a day and it works well for me. I would suggest trying their trial version first to get the hang of it.

Let me know if you have specific questions.

yes, its possible to imports from sierra,

i was playing with edgewonk for couple of days, and i didnt like 2 things:
1. it does not get any data so impossible to see best exits, ie how far the price went after your exit, its possible to update MFE manually, but this is no good. This feature is available in tradervue and its very valuable indicator to follow when analyzing trade management
2. if you enter with 3 clicks by 1 lot, it does not combine them into 1 trade, in short, it does not support scale in/out, splitting all scales into separate trades, and i think it is a huge disadvantage. they do explain that they do it intentionally, but maybe they could leave this for traders to decide, and select combine or split trades? this thing was actually the main reason i stopped using them. They suggest some tags etc, and say traders abuse scaling etc. But guys, thats what the journal is for, you have to journal the way you trade, not the way Edgewonk thinks you have to trade and measure yourself.

All the rest i like very much, interface, measurement of emotions etc.

please, just let me combine my scales into 1 trade!

maybe anyone here found a way around this problem in edgewonk?

Couldn't agree more with the scaling in and out issues.
I have written to them several times and just get lectured with the "we know best" meme.

My thought on that is "are you trading my money ?"

If not, let me choose how I deal with my scaling

and have to say, thats a very annoying attitude from supplier who charge one-off fee, with no subscription. this edgewonk is now just lost somewhere on the harddrive and i dont use this, just because of scaling.
