My trade Journal

I’ve made a copy of my trade journal, for those of you who don’t have one and dont know where to start.

there’s two versions, one for excel 97-2003 users and the other is for excel 2007 users. i made it using excel 2007 so the 97-2003 version might look a bit funny, some of the conditional formatting doesnt work but there should be no loss in functionality.


1.calculates the units required to achieve your risk goals(mainly for oanda users, but the you can doctor the formula’s to suit your own needs if you deal with lots)
2. calculates p&l automatically
3.calculates weekly pip performance automatically
4. equity growth chart


when you open the spreadsheet, input the prices for GBP/USD and EUR/USD at the top on the ORDER BOOK worksheet.

any coloured column is where you input data (except the units column and stop loss pips column*)

There are two ways of calculating your SL, either you can enter a price in the SL column, hence your stop loss will be shown in the SL pips column or you can enter a value in the SL pips column only.

Let me know if you have any problems.

there are two demo transactions to show the functionality of the sheet. (362 KB) (105 KB)
