    friends,

    This thread has been ignored for long and need a revival. I think, still there is lot to be discussed on this and also on the subject of Money Management.

    I have just finished a small portfolio tracker in Excel using the above model (Position Sizing Strategy), but not that precise.

    I am still fine tuning the Excel File and will post it in the forum pretty soon.

    So, keep watching this space for more and please add any new ideas here.

    hi satya,

    it's really great news to hear about the position sizing excel worksheet getting ready to be gifted to the members of this forum.

    referred by some seniors in this forum, i have been using the two position sizing software 'ToneyOZ' and 'MMCalculator'. but your one being made with the Indian investor in mind will be more relevant to us. and moreover additional features and support service can be incorporated as per user requests.

    i look forward with excitement the relwease of the same for public use.

    thanks for the generous gesture.

    all the best.

    Murthygaru,

    I am developing a very basic one. Let's see where it goes.

    friends,

    I have updated the Excel File. The updation include the below corrections

    1. Stop Loss is now based on Column "Higher Close" rather than C.M.P (Current Market Price).

    2. Calculates Stop Loss Accurately and Paints a Red Color when the C.M.P goes below the Stop Loss

    Please let me know your comments and any difficulties you face.

    As told, this is a basic Excel File based on 2% Risk per Trade based on Total Equity Investment.

    Regards
    Satya
