New symbol filters

You’ve always been able to filter trades in Tradervue by symbol, among other things. But many futures traders trade multiple contracts, on multiple underlying assets, and need a way to group these together for reporting.

For example, if I have traded ESZ1, ESU2, ESZ2, CLU2, and CLV2, I can filter on any of these specific contracts. But what if I want to see consolidated results for just the three ES contracts? Up to now, tags would be the only solution.

Starting today, you can use wildcards in the symbol filter, in the global filter bar. Specifically:

  • Use * to match any number of characters
  • Use ? to match any one character

So a few examples:

  • ES* would match all ES contracts
  • ES?2 would match all 2012 ES contracts
  • ESZ* would match December ES contracts in all years

Just one more way to slice up your data, and really understand your trading.

Consecutive wins/losses

The statistics table at the top of the detailed reports page now shows the maximum number of consecutive wins and losses:

Each side has a “show” link – if you click on that link, you will see the particular sequence of trades that’s making up the consecutive win/loss streak. In addition, when you do this the global filter is modified to just show those trades; that means you can browse through the rest of the reports, and see data for only the particular sequence of trades.

So for example, say you had a losing streak of 20 trades. If you click on the “show” link, you’ll see just those 20 trades. Then go back to the detailed reports page, and go to (say) the liquidity group – you might find your losing trades all have something in common that you didn’t expect.

Note that this, just like all other data in the statistics table, is reporting on the trades that are selected via the global filter bar. If you filter on just SPY trades, for example, the consecutive wins/losses will be just for the SPY trades.

The max consecutive wins and losses is available for all users – go take a look!
