Since 2007, TJS has been a leading provider of Excel-based spreadsheets for traders, and a small business dedicated to providing the best Trade Tracking & Analysis software.

TJS is based out of Summerlin, at the edge of the Spring Mountains, about 12 miles west of the Las Vegas strip.

Greg Thurman, developer of the TJS, devotes his days to maintaining, progressing and supporting the Trading Journal Spreadsheet for its many thousands of users across the globe.

Company Mission

  • To provide valuable tools to traders who aspire to excel in their trading business.
  • To help traders evaluate their true market ‘edge’, giving reason to exploit those opportunities.
  • To help traders recognize when specific actions are becoming detrimental to their account.
  • To always offer the very unique Trading Journal Spreadsheet at a viable cost, and to give each client specialized service, and value for their money.


The Trading Journal Spreadsheet began in 2005 as a way to track my own personal trading progress. By early 2007, I had shared what I created with a handful of other trading cohorts. They all loved it, and more importantly, they benefited from the analysis it provided, and were adamant that it should be available to other aspiring traders.

In March of 2007, the very first TJS was purchased (on Ebay) by a trader in Germany. A positive review came TJS Timelineshortly after, and the quest began to provide a TJS to traders around the globe. The TJS product has gone through countless improvements since those early days, and is now being used by thousands of traders in nearly 100 countries. View the TJS Timeline ⇒

Personally, the TJS has turned out to be my very best ally, and from the 100’s of positive feedback reviews, it proves to be a favorite piece of arsenal in many other traders tool chests as well. There is no way I’d trade without it, and am blessed each and every day that I get to help other traders track and analyze their trades. Cheers to you!

Our Video Journey

TJS location

At TJS, I get asked quite often about personal recommendations, so… I created this page.

I recognize that there is a plethora of trading resources at our disposal, so the following mentions will only cover the people or products that I have dealt with in the past (and/or) have in-depth knowledge of from personal use, which will be noted in the sections (below). *

Please know, once I find something that I whole-heartily believe in, I’m not someone that keeps looking for the next (big/new/trendy) thing or opportunity. Thus, my list of resources will be slim… quality over quantity.

Education / Trading Room / Newsletters

Disciplined Trading Strategies - (the educational arm of TJS)

Disciplined Trading Strategies is an educational resource for traders and investors, run by Paul Lange.

Quite honestly, the TJS would probably not exist without the education that I received from Paul Lange. The education he provided allowed me to understand the footprints of money (technical analysis) in a way that I had not previously grasped. With that knowledge, I was able to create a journal that would analyze the various strategies that were taught by Paul, and then apply them to my own trading.

Paul takes a technical and psychological approach to trading, and over the years he’s developed a unique level of ‘unconscious competence’ that every trader should strive for. I’m quite certain Paul can  lecture about trading – in his sleep.

If you’re a trader looking for expert and insightful knowledge of the Stock markets, I can’t recommend anyone better. Paul is on another level… an “Elite” trader.

Free Charting

Trading View

Chart (all) markets.  Exchange Ideas.  Get News.  Use the Screener… all for (free).

Why I like (and use) Trading View:

1) It’s easy to use… View multiple time frames, Annotate charts, Create watch lists, and you can even publish to social channels.

2) It’s cheap… There are lots of free features and functionality for general use, or a Pro Membership costs only $9.99/month.

3) It has TONS of built-in indicators, but also allows you to write scripts to create your own indicators.

I personally use Trading View and use it on multiple computers (and find it lean and responsive for an older tablet). I love how I can easily mark-up and take screenshots of my trades that I use for the TJS Trade Review sheet.

* Although I’ve traded other markets in the past, for personal reasons and/or time-constraints I now only trade U.S. based Stocks (and recently have been trading) Cryptocurrencies. Therefore, my list may not pertain, or be of much help to you.
