Trading Journal Software


Hi ,

Can anyone share some thoughts on the availability of Trading Journal / Tracker / portfolio management software to track both Stocks and Forex trading . I am preparing my own version of Excel sheet with the key elements that I want to track , but couldn ' t find any nice product already available . What products that people normally use ?

I came across Excel Trading Spreadsheets, Journal and Log for Stock, Futures and Forex traders, which offers excel version . While I find it helpful , I feel it little bit difficult to configure and use . I am surprised that no one offers a product in this category .

Thanks ,
Ram

trade journal


FXCM produces an extensive excel spreadsheet of trade history . Has there been created a spread sheet to plug - in this data as a bases to produce a & quot ; scorecard & quot ;... crunching these numbers to produce what David has stated to be important to a trade journal ?

Hey Dntconcord ,

Not that I am aware of but this is something that I am sure a lot of people would be interested in so maybe a project I can take on in the future . If anyone knows of one out there that I am not aware of please share .

Best Regards ,
Dave

on the subject of trading journals that folks can use for forex / stocks / futures trading , i wanted to note the trading journal software created by IT member Magic. it ' s a downloadable application that ' s pretty powerful .

As far as desktop programs for tracking and documenting trades , I found that both the Trading Journal Spreadsheet by Gator Trader and the Trade Journal Software by AlphaMindSet are both reasonably priced and easy to use . I hope that Quicken by Intuit, Inc. will someday incorporate a trading journal in Quicken for traders that can be integrated with their TurboTax. Currently , Quicken Premiere can track trades , but there ' s no provision for documenting each transaction in the same manner like the other software I mentioned .

StockJock

PS . Google Docs has some basic trading journal type templates .

I didn ' t find the one I needed on the web so i created my own . Mine is simple and it keeps track of the most important information ( No Charts ).
You should probably create your own or you could buy mine :
