It’s now possible to quickly add a timestamp to trade or journal notes. To add the current timestamp, click the calendar button on the right side of the editor toolbar:
Even quicker, you can just press Ctrl+T in the editor, and the timestamp will be inserted at the current cursor position.
Timestamps are entered in US eastern time, to match the time zone your execution times and charts are displayed in.
This is super handy for updating notes on a developing trade throughout the day, making notes on a swing trade, or adding notes throughout the day to a journal entry!
We’ve added Volume Weighted Average Price (VWAP) to the available studies on intraday price charts in Tradervue. A few notes about how this works:
- The VWAP is calculated intraday, starting from the open, and is only available on intraday charts.
- For stocks, pre-market activity is not included in the VWAP calculation. This is rarely an issue, as regular-hours volume tends to quickly exceed pre-market levels.
- It is calculated based on the interval shown on the chart. So for example, if you’re looking at a 1-minute chart, VWAP is calculated based on 1-minute data. If you’re looking at a 5-minute chart, it’s calculated based on 5-minute data.
- VWAP is only available for stock and futures trades.
If you haven’t used them before, here are details on how to add studies to charts in Tradervue. And if you’re not already familiar with it, here’s a primer on VWAP!
We’ve written a short sample application in Python that uses the Tradervue API to add industry tags to your trades, based on their symbol. It’s only a sample – you’ll need to add the list of tags you want to use – but it demonstrates how to do it in a straightforward manner.
You could use this same code to add other tags to your trades as well. For example, you could add a “preferred” tag to all of your trades in preferred stocks.
The possibilities using the new API are endless!
