Hi All

This is a newbie question, but I am looking for some software that will either run in the cloud (web based) or run on my desktop. These are the must haves:

-export from MT4
-reporting, charts, analysis of trades
-diary journal for notes
-attach screenshots (nice to have)

Here is a web based site I am very happy with: https://www.myfxbook.com/members/sneakers/sneakers/268503
where I can switch on the option to display my results to public or private.

I also tried The4xJournal here: https://the4xjournal.com/ (not aff. link) but its pretty clunky and
not impressive at all.

For desktop based, I have tried the Forex Control Center here: https://www.forexcontrolcenter.com/ (not aff. link)
and its pretty good...but last updated 2007 (?), so is there anything more recent and more powerful?

Yes, I know people use spreadsheets in excel and google etc....I am hoping to find some higher powered
software up to $300. And again, its not an EA, Robot or idiot tool....its analysis, journal, maybe some
risk/reward calculator thrown in.

I am not looking for 'FREE' so dont post any free software, its usually hopeless....

Hi Sneakers,

I've used this for a few years, excellent bit of code. My only beef is its of course all manual entry... but if your not a scalper, it's really not very time consuming once you get the hang of it. Greg is always quick to respond to any issues you may have also.


I just trade.

myfxbook is the best online trade journal if you still have not noticed. It give you a general picture on how you do what and you do. At the end of each trade, you may leave common and photo commons. How cool is that? cheers.

Don't allow yesterday's success to lull you into today's complacency, for this is the great foundation of failure.

yes June Storm - but I am asking about software based on my PC, not online.

I'm afraid you won't get what you want. The developers get money from site visitor and they get nothing if they make it offline, unless users willing to pay. But nobody willing to pay something they can get for free.

I think you can make your myfxbook private, if that's what you want. And you can combined it with other blog site

stick to myfxbook or ask some developer to create one for you.

I have not found a journal which can store my data by cloud.

There's one called fxlogger I asked the developer he said he'll add it to his features but it will take some time.

Sorry i meant to say I dont think it can export from MT4.

It can, however, export your log into excel. Which is really handy.
