I'm just looking for ideas on how people already do, or think might be a good idea in tracking what my average spread has been per trade on each market?

Is there a way to "print" the spread per open and closed trade in the comments box (comment box window on the trade)? That way I could actually export the data easily from MT4 and analyze it further in excel?

Any ideas?

There is no spread except for the current tick (Ask - Bid.) If you want it later, you must save it.

Yea makes sense. You saying save the difference between Ask - Bid as soon as the trade is entered? Is it possible to save this information on the trade comment box?

Of course you can. However, it may change if the broker decides to.
