FastTrack's Add In creates custom functions that draw FastTrack market data into excel. The full list of functions is below.
- All date values must be referenced from a cell or wrapped in quotes. Ex: "12/31/2019"
- Any "start" value left blank will default to a trailing 1 year of the most recent date
- Any "end" value left blank will default to the most recent market day
Date Short Codes
All start date parameters take the short codes below. Dates are calculated off of the end date parameter, defaulting to the latest market day when omitted.
Codes: "1M", "3M", "6M", "9M", "12M", "1Y", "2Y", "3Y", "5Y", "10Y", "Y" (YTD)
All the functions in the FastTrack Excel Add-in are non-volatile. This means the functions only recalculate when inputs (parameters) of the function are changed. Volatile functions recalculate when ANY cell changes (if you have lots of formulas always recalculating in your workbook, this can be VERY slow).
Use Ctrl + Alt + Shift + F9 to "Force Recalculate" FastTrack Excel Add-in functions.
Alternatively, add a Volitile function (such as =Today()) to any date parameter in the function and FastTrack's Excel Add In's custom fuction will act volitile (due to the volitile input as a date)
Both formulas below produce the same 1 year trailing return value.
Non volitile Trailing 1 year total return =FastTrack.TotalReturn("JPM","1Y") Volitile Trailing 1 year total return =FastTrack.TotalReturn("JPM","1Y",Today())
