here are some ideas i got form this guy:

Please register on futures.io to view futures trading content such as post attachment(s), image(s), and screenshot(s).


i would like to see net, gross, and total commissions for each of the week, monthly, yearly for sure tho..

sorry for the bad quality of this screeny.. it was a screeny of a not to HD video that the guy posts to his blog..

I rather like the above, so I kind of went along the same lines.
So this is what I've got so far:
Please register on futures.io to view futures trading content such as post attachment(s), image(s), and screenshot(s).

This is just a sketch, no formulas, so there are errors in the week #...

What do you think how many years we should have in there?

I also thought we should have some graphs similar to the hour of day graphs on overview: day of week, month of year and perhaps day of month?

What more do we want to stick in there? Any suggestions? (I might have missed suggestions in earlier posts, if I did, please remind me...)

that actually does look pretty nice and ill take an even closer look here in a moment(6E is moving as we speak).. i also like those ideas about the graphs(and pie charts!)..

is there a way to have the journal 'know' how many years you have and just plot it out? so once a new year was started it would just start building a new year below the previous(see my idea below).. since were into this whole automation stuff..

also i think the weekly, monthly, and yearly totals need the net,gross, and commish totals where the 'totals' are located.. you would also be able to make all that data fit and look nice and simple if the years went across in landscape or rows, instead of having them in portrate or columns.. monitors are wide now-a-days so that wont be an issue to have the years descend from oldest to newest and would look nice to 'flow' with the way the journal is setup..

dont believe anything you hear and only half of what you see

¯\_(ツ)_/¯

Having it landscape is what I started with, but then I ran into problems with the week numbers of the year... But now that I think about it... We will run into problems like this as well...weeks are ofen split between two months....

They are individual blocks, perhaps this explains it a bit:

With the week number you have a matrix so we don't have to label each week# separately...just saving some space.
Works like this:

No it shows the average of all occurrences of that weekday, eg. average of all Mondays.

Works the same way as the hourly thing on the overview tab.

oh ok, i see what your doing now. i thought it was trying to show each day of the month like in the first layout you did.. wouldnt the way you setup the week days right now be better as a graph?

Yes, there will definitely be a graph displaying that (probably not a pie chart though, sorry)
