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!

For those not prepared, the failure rate can be overwhelming.

Few traders commit to any type of trade journal, let alone one designed to track and analyze their progress.
Would any legitimate business not commit to record-keeping?

  • Do you think this has anything to do with the high failure rate among traders?

… be prepared, be a standout trader!

What Do Trading Educators Have To Say?

Dr. Alexander Elder, author of Trading for a Living has this to say about good Record-Keeping 

“If you do not have good records, how can you measure your performance, rate your progress, and learn from your mistakes? Those who do not learn from the past are doomed to repeat it.”

Brett N. Steenbarger, Ph.D., author of Enhancing Trader Performance has this to say about Journals…

“The Journal is a business plan. The right plan, executed faithfully, can be the difference between success and failure in any endeavor.”
