Thanks for your journal Stray.
In my case, I just make use of myfxbook.com. It automatically tracks the trades I make, gives me these history details:
and these summaries:
Again, those information are automatically generated, I don’t have to manually type them in. Trades I make gets reflected in that myfxbook account, automatically. (I lost track how many times i used “automatically” :D)
Here is my journal from that website. Please don’t laugh at me, I’m still negative, still learning
Oh, you can also choose which of the data you want to share. Like in my case, you don’t get to see how many millions (or cents) I’m loosing. LoL. But you get to see my performance. I have also enabled viewing my open trades, past trades, history, etc, except my actual money.
Though I admit, it doesn’t completely give me all the information I want, such as my take profit/stop loss (in pips), reward to risk ratio, and percent risk (although you can type these information on the “comment” section of the trade). For that, I simply make use of a google document I can view almost anywhere, as long as I have internet connection (and of course, a web browser). No need to carry the document with me, and end up having different versions of the document. You can edit it anywhere, all the PCs on which that document is open gets updated as well.
So I simply would recommend a google document spreadsheet instead of creating an excel file. Well you can convert Stray’s excel file into a google spreadsheet file easily.
Here is my google document for those who want to have a look at it.
