For TJS Elite v3+: go to any TradingLog sheet, then scroll to the right (beyond the graphs in the top-header). Locate the icon buttons and click the appropriate one. That’s it, done!

FYI, the Milestones sheet is already set-up to give you Avg MFE and MAE stat’s, per trade!

If your version does not have the icon buttons, you can either upgrade to the newest Elite product, or follow the instructions below.
