New weekly performance report

You can now view weekly realized P&L performance, in addition to the year, month, and day periods. From the Reports View, go to the Overview tab, and click the Year/Month/Day group. Just below the yearly performance, you’ll see options for monthly and weekly:

Tradervue___Reports

Just click “Weekly” to see your distribution and performance by week for the selected year. As with all of the reports, these can be run in terms of aggregate or per-trade average performance, either gross or net, and in units of $, ticks, or R.

For reporting purposes, a “week” runs from Sunday to Saturday, and January 1 is always considered to be in week 1.

Market behavior report updates

The Market Behavior reports are designed to show your trading performance against what the overall market is doing; it’s shown based on market movement, gap, and day type:

Tradervue___Reports

We’ve always used the SPY ETF as a proxy for market performance. But as you know, not all markets move the same, and many users have asked to be able to compare to different markets. So today, we have added the ability to select which market proxy you would like to use for these reports:

Tradervue___Reports

Currently in the list are:

  • SPY
  • QQQ
  • IWM
  • XLF
  • GLD
  • USO
  • VXX

These reports are interactive, and what’s really special is you can stack filters from different markets together.  For example, you can create a filter to show trades made on days where the QQQ gapped down over 2%, and the VXX closed up over 2%:

Tradervue___Trades

These new additions are available today for all silver and gold subscribers. Free subscribers will continue to have access to a non-interactive SPY-only version of the report.

Time-of-day report additions

We’ve enhanced the Hour-of-day reports to show additional intervals of 30 and 15 minutes,  in addition to hours:

Tradervue___Reports

Click one of the links shown, and the report will change to show performance broken out by 15- or 30-minute intervals.

These new options apply to the Detailed, Win vs Loss Days, and Compare tabs in the Reports View, and are available now for all silver and gold subscribers!

Monthly charts added

We have added monthly price charts to the available intervals. You can use them by selecting “Monthly” from the chart interval list on individual trade pages, or click “Settings” from the Dashboard, and go to the “Chart settings” tab to change your global default chart settings.

Email notification changes

Since introducing the new activity feed as a way to be notified of new comments on your trades and journal entries (and those you’ve commented on), we’ve made some changes to the way the old email notifications work. You can now control whether or not you’d like to receive email notifications:

Tradervue___Your_AccountFrom the Dashboard, click Settings, go to the Notifications tab, and you can enable or disable email notifications of new comments.

Regardless of this setting, you can always go to your Dashboard and see new comments and other notifications in the Activity feed.

Customize your Dashboard

There is quite a bit of information on the Tradervue Dashboard, and not everyone wants to see all of it, all of the time. So we’ve added the ability to customize the Dashboard; just click the “Customize Dashboard” link at the lower right corner of the Dashboard:

Tradervue___Subscriber_Dashboard

When you click that, you’ll be able to select exactly which information should appear on your Dashboard.

New activity feed for notifications

If you have a trading mentor (or are one yourself), or if you’re sharing your trades, you probably get a number of comments every day on your trades or journal entries. You receive email notifications of these comments, but aside from the emails, there hasn’t been easy way to see the recent activity related to your trades, entries, and comments.

So to address this, we’ve added a new “Recent Activity” box on the Dashboard:

Tradervue___Subscriber_Dashboard

Your recent activity will include:

  • comments left on your trades or journal entries
  • comments left on trades/entries you’ve previously commented on
  • notices when a mentor accepts/declines your invitation

You’ll no longer need to sift through your emails to see recent comments and other notifications – they will all be there in one place.

The Activity feed is available immediately for all users – just check your dashboard!

K-ratio calculation added

We’ve added the K-ratio (also known as the Zephyr k-ratio) to Tradervue’s statistics tables.

K-ratio is a return vs. risk ratio. Imagine your cumulative P&L plotted, with the x-axis being the trade number (starting from 1, sorted by date/time), and the Y-axis as cumulative P&L. Now imagine a best-fit line plotted drawn over this chart:

Tradervue___Reports

The k-ratio is the slope of this line divided by the standard error of the line. K-ratio will increase as the slope increases (cumulative P&L increasing faster), but will decrease with outsized gains or losses (indicating inconsistency).

A higher k-ratio indicates a higher positive consistency in trading performance. A ratio higher than 2.0 or so is generally considered good.

As with all Tradervue statistics, you can compare k-ratio between two different trading systems, for example, using the Compare reports.

K-ratio is available today for Gold subscribers, and is shown in the statistics tables on the Detailed, Compare, and Win vs Loss Days reports tabs.

Comparison symbols in chart settings

A while back, we added the ability to add comparison symbols to your price charts in Tradervue. So for example, if you wanted to plot the price of the instrument you’re trading, and the SPY on the same chart for comparison, you could do so.

Today, we’ve made it easier by adding the comparison symbol to your default chart settings:

Tradervue___Your_Account

From the Dashboard, click Settings, go to the Chart Settings tab, and you’ll be able to add a comparison symbol for any of your default configured charts.

Saving Notes

There have always been two places to record notes in Tradervue:

  • Notes for an individual trade (when viewing an individual trade)
  • Notes for a day (in the Journal View)

But starting today, you can create general notes, not specifically attached to trades or days, for anything you like! Your notes will be listed in the sidebar on the Journal View:

Tradervue___Journal

Clicking on one of your notes will display it:

Tradervue___Journal_Entry

As with any other note in Tradervue, you can not only type your notes, but also add images and video to them if you wish!
