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.....

wouldnt the graph pull from the journal?


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

im not exactly sure what you mean, but it sounds interesting...

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

i kinda feel like the weekly matrix needs all of the daily stats as i mentioned in the post that started all this, but the daily chart only needs the stats that are currently in weekly matrix.. and they need to switch places..

Yes, everything pulls from the journal, but in this case indirectly.

Now we have a single trade granularity on overview account chart, we could make it toggle between that and dayly granularity....

Aboutthe stats I clearly see your point, about switching places I'm not too sure yet, it would also ban the quarterly stats to the bottom....

putting the quarterly top to bottom or down in the notch doesnt raise any feelings in me at this point. to me i see it as useful but more of a widget on the greater mass of information.. but its good that this is getting hashed out before it get to set in stone.. this really is the most interesting part of the journal.. at least to me..

Maybe trades could go between net and net/trade as that would reflect the calc ways...

Any chance you unprotected anything and then re-protected it manually prior to that error?
