  • We work extremely hard to keep things positive on our forums.
  • We do not tolerate rude behavior, trolling, or vendor advertising in posts.
  • We firmly believe in openness and encourage sharing. The holy grail is within you, it is not something tangible you can download.
  • We expect our members to participate and become a part of the community. Help yourself by helping others.

How to report ticks made?

Hi all --

I had my first day of trading /CL today from about 7:15am to about 11:30am PST.

How do you report the number of pips made or lost? I start with multiple contracts and scale in further after that. At the end of the day, how do you report what you've done so it's more comparable to what others have done?
