I have discovered a program that makes the dull task of trade and account record-keeping simple and
pleasurable. TRADE$K is a bookkeeping computer program that gathers and organizes futures or options
trades, open orders and positions, and produces reports that include essential daily trade information and
alerts. The program is well designed, easy to use and helpful for the active commodity trader. Its many
handy options make it one of the most used programs in my library.
Before TRADE$K, I used a spreadsheet program to keep track of my trades. It was crude, quick and dirty
compared with TRADE$K, which is refined and elegant. The essential information I want to see each day
are my current trades, open trade equity and an up-todate record of my year-to-date profit and loss. With
TRADE$K, I create an account —the program can handle an unlimited number of accounts—and then post
orders through menu-driven routines. The program contains a contract specifications file with
user-definable options such as margins, commissions, fees and the dollar value of each commodity price
tick. You can customize the input options for contract specifications. For example, the data entry format
that I like differs from the default option. I prefer to enter all my data without pressing the period key to
enter decimals. The program will accommodate this format and also recognizes up to six other price
formats, including bonds in 32nds and grains in one-quarter-cent increments.
