Importance of Trade Spreadsheet in Trading

According to a study conducted by the Securities and Exchange Board of India (SEBI), 9 out of 10 retail traders suffered losses in the derivatives (F&O) segment in the financial year 2021-2022. One of the key reasons for this can be traced back to the lack of proper and adequate insights into historical trades. Without in-depth information and understanding of past trades, it becomes difficult for traders to learn from their previous actions. The new-gen Samco trading app, with its unique Trade Spreadsheet feature, aims to help traders like you bridge this gap in knowledge. You can use this feature to get a detailed overview of your trading patterns and plan future trades smartly using the various analytics metrics available in the app.
