You have used the correct formula, the value you are seeing because of negative sum of values throughout the dates.

The result is not correct

pls try
=XIRR(U2:U18,T2:T18,SIGN(SUM(U2:U18))*0.01)

Open in new window

You have to help the function to find the result (-0.39199869) in this case negative

I used the sum of the workflows to see if the result could be more probably being positive or negative then I fill the guess argument whether with 1% or -1% to help the function in the direction of the awaited return
