Welcome to TradeJournal. A platform where traders can review their trades, share their knowledge and learn from each other.

Where It All Started

Our co-founder, Alex Winkler has been trading since 2011 and at that time he just noted ideas down on pieces of paper. Ideal entries/exits, some reasons behind the trade, and so on.

Eventually, as Alex's passion for trading grew so did his pile of random trade notes. Therefore he would dedicate the next 2 years to building a public Google Sheet trade journal that would organize all his trades and compile statistics; so he could learn from each and every one of his trades.

It wasn't long though until he soon outgrew the Google Sheets as well. There was more to explore in the numbers and charts. There was more to share with his students as a mentor. There was a larger community to learn from as a whole.

That's when it was decided a cloud version of the Google Sheets was necessary.
