I have these additional fields that you do not:

TotVol
AtBidOrAsk

I track total volume elsewhere or you can simply do a sum. For AtBidorAsk, no need for a field, you can make the determination on the fly using the provided data. QCollector is just making it easier in its output file.

You should also make yourself familiar with these threads:

Due to time constraints, please do not PM me if your question can be resolved or answered on the forum.

Need help?
1) Stop changing things. No new indicators, charts, or methods. Be consistent with what is in front of you first.
2) Start a journal and post to it daily with the trades you made to show your strengths and weaknesses.
3) Set goals for yourself to reach daily. Make them about how you trade, not how much money you make.
4) Accept responsibility for your actions. Stop looking elsewhere to explain away poor performance.
5) Where to start as a trader? Watch this webinar and read this thread for hundreds of questions and answers.
6)
