Forex now supported!

It’s been a long time in coming, but I’m pleased to announce that Tradervue now supports Forex!

In the trades list, they will look just like other trades:

forex1

The P&L shown is the as-converted P&L for the trade in USD. If the currency conversion has not yet been calculated, this will show “pending”.

For trades that are denominated in USD, the trade will look very similar to stock or futures trades:

For trades that transact in different currencies, Tradervue will show data in that currency when viewing the trade, as well as the as-converted P&L in USD:

forex3

The closing P&L will be converted as of the times each portion of the P&L is realized. It will be calculated based on the conversion rate at those particular minutes – it will not use an end-of-day conversion.

The execution detail and calculated MFE/MAE stats will remain in the native currency:

The running P&L charts for a trade will be shown in the trade’s native currency:

forexplchart

The running P&L charts for each day, which show all intraday trades, will use as-converted USD P&L so as to aggregate all of the trades for the day together:

Most of the reports will still report in USD, using the converted P&L results to ensure all of your trades can be aggregated together. In addition, some of the Advanced reports can now report in pips.
