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

yes i will do the debug and post you that pic when i get it again.



those changes are mostly for flow. the stats stacked that way seem to flow much better than them just kinda in some random order. and the moving the daily section down and the weeklies up it makes the flow from:

-yearly
-daily
-weekly

to

-yearly
-weekly
-daily

would be like counting:

-10
-1
-5

to

-10
-5
-1

pretty anal right? they always say that lifes about the little things..

LOL

Lesson in counting
Yearly/monthly. 10
Weekday (representing 1/7 to 1/5 of all trading days) 5
Week (representing roughly 1/50 of all trading days) 1

Please do NOT note that I left out the quarterly as I didn't know where to put it....

I think it would be nice to have all the stats in the weekly too, but I didn't do it as the table would not fit on the screen any more...and I tried where possible to fit everything on one screen....so I don't really know which bitter pill to swallow...

Yes but your daily in reality is day of week, not representing one day but 1/7 to 1/5 of all days....
So it clearly represents more than the weeklies...now the question where to put it gets a bit more complicated

none of the journal fits on my screens.. three 17s and one 19 all which are not widescreen..

i think its much worse to have it wider than the screen than it is to have to scroll down a bit..

ya i know what you mean but since we cant show every single day like in the original idea we did it this way. i actually think that the daily part of it should be a graph and not in a table..

Then the quarterly is at the bottom, is that for the flow?

Thereis a graph. But that graph needsa table as input. Also I petsonally find it quite interesting to see eg on mondays I generally lose money (hung over?) and on the other days I'm killing it.....

For the single day, we couldhave that on overview toggling between the one now showing each trade and a chart showing the days....
