OK, I finally completed my spreadsheet and I took the time to verify the calculations by hand so I know this should be the final version that works very well. If you want to use the file with the original program I used to write it, it’s free at...(you click on Calc after installation)

www: OpenOffice.org - The Free and Open Productivity Suite

And some tips on how to use Microsoft Excel (the spreadsheet in the free Open Office is supposedly a “clone” of Excel)...

This spreadsheet will calculate the total profits or losses (including commissions as well), your percentage of winning trades (and losers), average profit or loss per trade, average percentage profit on winners (and losers as well), risk/reward ratio, number of winners (and losers) and total profits and total losses. All you have to do is type in your ticker symbols, entry price, exit price, number of shares traded and the commissions column you don’t need to fill. (You can always click to change the formula and insert the right amount instead of \$25. So, tell me if you like it.

thanks this is good.
i like to split my position into 3 portions, and take profit at 25, 75 pips and then trail the final lot with 75 pips trailing. can you design a spreadsheet for me?
thanks
