Here is my set up.
I am running a simulation of a gambler betting over time
Here are the givens I am using.
Probability of win = 35% which is in B1 table
Odds = 2 which is in B3 table
Kelly # (amount of current bankroll to bet each time) = 2.5% which is in D1 table
Bankroll = $10,000 which is in A6 table
I am going to put in formulas I have for other cells in my simulation of bets, but will provide the data that those tables hold as well
SOME OTHER COLUMNS B6: =$D$1*A6
C6: =randbetween(1,000) column
Then I drag these down to run 2000 simulation of random bets
Near the bottom I have a table that has the capital gain the final bankroll - the beginning $10,000 bankroll.
(is there a way to graph these wins on a line graph just the start of $10,000 to my final bankroll?)
also what i need most
How to make a what if analysis... comparing different outcomes if the Kelly # (the percentage of my current bankroll I am betting) was different.
0.01 0.015 0.02 0.025 0.03 0.035 0.04
and under each column of the different percentages I want the final capital gain in them... and I want to have like 200 examples of this new capital gain...
Then I will average each column above for the 200 capital gains of the different percentages.
My confusion is this...
First off what is the value on the left of the percentages that I need to put in that block that will be concrete and unchanging? Is it $10,000 my beginning bankroll?
Then what are the values under that number?
I know I need to highlight the grid beginning with that concrete block (set as $10,000?) and then highlight down the 200 simulations I want.
Then I go to data > what if analysis > data table
Now what do i put in the table for row input cell? what about for the column input cell? <--- I believe I am supposed to leave this as a blank box - so I will just chose $G$1 an unused cell
Also here is a screen cap of my excel sheet (I am unable to link to my second screen cap... here it is:
