    benallen, welcome to the forum. Could you please upload your spreadsheet? We can't do much with a photo of it

    The formula for E3 only seems to patrially work, If the stake is 1 it says profit is 0, it seems to be minusing 2.05 regardless of the stake

    Re: Help needed

    Sorry, instead of B3*C3-C3,-C3, it should be B3*C3-B3,-B3

    My mistake!

    Don't forget to click the star, and rename the post according to the forum rules.
