Not sure, win % shows top and bottom in green/red....

We should also agree where to display account balance on that tab...

I will post a new beta in the near future.

thats confusing since sat and sunday really dont usually have any trades.. so does that mean if it is negative that that is a negative % or should the % be 0% since you didnt have any winning trades?

i posted a screeny of a strange green color in the journal tab that isnt making sense to me on the previous page. link: https://futures.io/psychology-money-management/4884-trading-metrics-journals-record-keeping-63.html#post189330

as for where the balance totals should go, i think at least the yearly and quarterly tables need them, maybe the weekly..

also on the weekly matrix the gross and net trades need to be colorized(along with the other color fixes).

ill keep looking for things on my end...

Beta34

Beta34

Various bugfixes...hopefully I got all the known ones.

Added an other graph on overview, they are cycling on button press.

@madLyfe, the bugs you mentioned should be gone, not sure about the strange color you mentioned, could you check?

@petrmac, could you please try this version and see if the error persists? If it does, I know how to solve it, but it might well be gone now...

To do list:
Add account on TPS tab
Some formatting on TPS tab (only doing the first year for now so I can c/p the format once it's finished...)
more?

the color is still there.. it was a positive trade, just barely, netted $0.30 after commish.. wonder if that has anything to do with it.. its not harming anything just odd that its a diff color of green..

(only doing the first year for now so I can c/p the format once it's finished...)

does c/p the format mean copy/paste? im guessing it does..

can we get these settings to copy over when you migrate from an older journal(import)? i didnt have this annotated on the screeny, but also weather you have the decimals for the journal enabled or not? oh and the 'exit strategy setting'..

also, im not sure if this is just cuz its protected or its something you changed for @petrmac, but on the journal tab from a fresh journal tab you cant enter a trade. you can tab to the next row, but once you start typing in the date area it gives you this error..

I am not able to enter anything manually either. The problem from the previous version persists.

Just checked, it is a color scale, scaling $-1< trade >$1 somewhere between red and green...I could change it if it is important....

Yes, long time practiced I have it

not a big deal, but be warned, it is going to bug me...

-the new migration features are working awesome accept the decimal places feature.

-the instruments tab is still unprotected for some reason.. i think there might be some hidden issue here..
