Trade Log Spreadsheet

My spreadsheet that I've personally developed and use on a daily basis. I thought it might help some people out considering how many people have downloaded my Calculator and my Success Notes.

The Basics:

  • Win/Loss Percentage
  • Average Gain/Loss in Dollar amounts and Percentage amounts
  • Profit Per Share
  • Percentage Gain/Loss of account as a whole
  • Net profit
  • And a lot more

Advanced Analysis:

  • R Multiple for each trade
  • Expectancy
  • Profit Factor
  • Equity Curve Chart
  • Potential Profit per trade
  • Potential Percentage gain per X amount of days (you can specify the time period)

I've spent a huge amount of time coming up with formulas to calculate this data. I'm constantly going over my stats to see where I'm at, where I'd like to be, what I need to do to get there based on how I'm performing, etc.

The boxes in Orange represent data fields that can be altered/entered in by the user. Everything else is automatically calculated and doesn't need to be touched. If you need any help with certain fields or don't know what a box means, leave me a comment and I'll help you out. The data that is currently in the spreadsheet is data I've made up as an example.

I hope you enjoy my spreadsheet. I find a lot of joy and feel good when I share what I've created with people. Happy trading.

I managed to grab real time price from Yahoo Finance to Excel. But I want to compute 1 month return, 2 month return, 6 month return, YTD return, etc... Do you know how to do that? Thanks

Mmhh..I'm not exactly sure since I haven't used Excel for a while but an easy fix I think would be to create seperate columns. One column for 1 month, another column for 3 month returns, etc. It doesn't sound very practical. I think you'd find better luck on an Excel forum site where you can ask those Excel masters, lol.
