Search your trades and journal notes

Tradervue now has a new search feature, allowing you to search the notes you enter in for your trades and/or journal entries. It’s very easy to use; first, click the Search link on the navigation bar:

You’ll then see a search box; enter the term(s) you want to search for, and whether you want to search your trades or journal entries:

And then you’ll see your results, ordered by relevance:

This is not the same thing as filtering trades. The filter allows you to narrow the scope of trades being analyzed, so you can generate reports on a subset of your trades (for example). The search feature is separate from the filter, and allows you to find your trades and/or journal entries based on your notes; search will not limit itself to, nor will it change, the current filter.

Search is available now, for all users!

Profit Factor added to stats

The statistics at the top of the Detailed reports tab now includes Profit Factor. It is also on the Win/Loss Days tab and the Compare tab, for each trade group.

In gross reporting mode, the profit factor is calculated as

    profit factor = gross profits / gross losses

In net reporting mode (for gold subscribers), the profit factor is

    profit factor = net profits / net losses

Where net profits and losses are the gross profits/losses, less commissions and fees.

Embed videos in trades and improved image support

You can now embed YouTube videos in your trade notes. To do that, just paste in the link to the video, and Tradervue will do the rest!

We have also changed the way we embed images; when you add an image to one of your trades, we will display it to fit within the notes area of the trade. If the image is shown at smaller than its normal size, we will auto-link it to the regular full-size version.

Here’s an example of a shared trade in NQ with both a large image and an embedded video.

New tag combination report

Back in April, we released the Tag Breakdown report, which allows you to see your performance broken out by tag. For those using tags (and you should be!), this is tremendously useful:

You can also filter by tags, including multiple tags at a time, to help narrow down the trades you’re reviewing or analyzing.

But what if you use tags for, say, trade entry criteria, and you use multiple tags for different criteria? For example, perhaps you have some trades tagged with the following:

trade 1: support, ema9
trade 2: support, ema20
trade 3: resistance, momentum
trade 4: resistance, breakout
trade 5: support, ema20

You can quickly build filters to narrow down your data, but what if you wanted to see which unique combinations of entry criteria were most effective? To address this, we have added a new way to look at your tags, by clicking on the “Tag Combinations” button on the reports Tag Breakdown tab. This shows you the unique combinations of tags you have used:

You can combine this Tag Combination report with tag (and other) filters, as you would expect.

This new tag combination report is available now for all Silver and Gold users. If you haven’t tried all of the reporting and analysis capabilities of the silver or gold plans, you can try them out with a free 7-day trial!

(Free trial available to users who have not been on a premium plan in the past; if you’re eligible, you will see a note to that effect on the Plans & Billing tab when you go to upgrade.)

Renko, Range Bar, and Volume Bar charts

Tradervue has always auto-generated price charts for your trades, on multiple timeframes, with your executions plotted. Now, we have greatly expanded this with three new chart types!

Renko charts – These are price charts where a bar is filled when the price exceeds a specific range, and will usually look like a series of diagonal lines:

In the above example, we’re showing a 25-tick Renko chart for CLX2. The bar size can be specified in either points or ticks. Renko charts are not time based – each bar may represent an arbitrary amount of time.

Range Bar charts – In a range bar chart, each bar represents a specific magnitude of price movement, and all price bars will be the same height. They are not time based. Here’s an example of a 25-tick Range Bar chart for CLX2:

Volume Bar charts – in a Volume Bar chart, each bar represents a fixed amount of volume. They are not time based. In the below example, we’re looking at a 10,000-contract volume bar chart in CLX2:

Executions are plotted on all chart types, and studies are available for all of them as well. To change a chart type to any of the above, or to switch between Candlestick and OHLC, click the gear icon at the top of each chart. You can also change the chart defaults to include these new chart types in your Chart Settings – from the Tradervue Dashboard, click Settings, then go to the Chart Settings tab.

These new charts are all available today – Renko, Range Bar, and Volume Bar charts are available for silver and gold subscribers, and Candlestick and OHLC charts are available (as before) for all users.
