Display charts for any execution

One of the most popular features of Tradervue is the way price charts are auto-generated for all of your trades, showing all of your buys and sells during the trade. You can choose any timeframe you like for up to 4 charts on each trade, and they will all show your executions.

In some cases, however, you can’t see all of the executions you want on a chart of a specific timeframe. For example, if you have a trade that lasts for 6 hours, you can’t show both the entry and exit on a 1-min chart. Or if you have a trade that lasts a month, you can’t see a 5-min chart of your entry – you’ll only see it for your exit.

Today, all that changes! You can now see any execution on any timeframe.

Let’s look at an example. Here is a daily chart for an option trade that was open for about a month:

You can see both the entries and the exits. Here’s the 15-min chart for that trade:

In this case, we only see the closing executions, as the chart would have to be quite large to show both entries and exits on a 15-min timeframe for a month-long trade.

But sometimes we want to see that chart at the entry time. Now, you can click “Advanced” in the trade detail view:

You’ll now see chart symbols next to each execution:

If we click on one of them:

All of the price charts for the trade are now shifted in time to show that execution, and it will be highlighted in yellow on each. Here’s a closer look at the 15-min chart from above, where you can see the selected opening sell is now visible, and highlighted in yellow:

As with any other chart, you can zoom in on any of these, or view them in large mode. This works for any trade, on any timeframe, starting today!

New larger chart size

When you view the details for one of your trades, you see a set of price charts on multiple timeframes with your executions plotted on each chart. You can have up to 4 different charts on each trade, and each chart is about half the width of the screen:

We have added a new toggle to expand these charts to a larger size. Just above the charts, on the right side, you’ll see new buttons to select between small and large charts:

chartsize1

When you switch to the large charts, each chart will expand to the full width of the page, and will show twice as many bars. Compare this larger chart with the 5-min chart we saw above:

chartsize3

On the smaller 5-min chart, we can see that we were trading a break of the day’s high; on the larger chart, we can see that this was an important level on the prior day as well.

These new larger charts are available to all users, starting today!

VWAP now available on charts

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!

Heikin-Ashi charts now available

In addition to Candlestick and OHLC, Range bar, Renko bar, and Volume bar charts, we now offer Heikin-Ashi charts as well. Heikin-Ashi charts are typically used to filter out some of the noise from regular candlestick charts, to better visualize the overall trend.

If you’re not familiar with them, StockCharts.com has an article about Heikin-Ashi charts here.

These are available today for all silver and gold users!

Charts display mode on Trades View

We’ve added a new way to view your trades in the Trades View. If you click the Settings button over on the right side, you’ll see a new “Display Mode” setting:

Tradervue___TradesThere are three settings to choose from:

  • Table (this is the default view)
  • Charts (large)
  • Charts (small)

Here are examples of how each view looks.

Table

Tradervue___Trades 2

Charts (large)

Tradervue___Trades 3

Charts (small)

Tradervue___Trades 4

The charts views can be very useful for quickly identifying patterns visually in your trades, without having to open the detail view for each trade.

The charts displayed are automatically chosen from the charts you have configured for each trade, choosing the chart with the most detailed timeframe that will still show the entire trade (if possible). Any configured studies on the chosen chart will be shown.

The new Trades View modes are available today for all users!

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.

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.

Importing images into Tradervue

We’ve always had the ability to embed images (your marked-up charts, etc.) into your trades and journal notes; however, in the past, you’ve had to upload those images to a third-party site, and then embed them into your trades. It could be a tricky process at times.

So to make that easier, we’ve added the ability to upload images directly to Tradervue, and embed them into your trades, all in one step. All you have to do it drag and drop your image into the notes editor! Here’s a short (0:47) video demonstrating how to do it:

This also solves a number of problems related to controlling access to your images. An image you upload to Tradervue will remain private and be accessible only to you. If you have mentors in Tradervue, they will be able to see the image as well, as you would expect. And if you choose to share a trade with an embedded image, that image will then be made accessible to everyone for as long as the trade is shared.

Uploading images is available today for all silver and gold subscribers.
