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:

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!
