Welcome to futures io.

Welcome, Guest!

This forum was established to help traders (especially futures traders) by openly sharing indicators, strategies, methods, trading journals and discussing the psychology of trading.

We are fundamentally different than most other trading forums:
  • 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.


You'll need to register in order to view the content of the threads and start contributing to our community. It's free and simple, and we will never resell your private information.

Maybe I'm jumping the shark for asking.

Basic idea. Just some bars to show P&L. I think a lot of people would like it. Total profit expressed on the right hand side of it with $0 at the bottom on the right hand side. Each bar represents a trade, and perhaps if someone can swing it, make a volume bar that represents how many contracts, shares, or lots in that trade.

Sorry. TOS can't do it. Exel will be good.

Would the Excel receive data instantaneously as the trades are happening? That's what I want for students.

If the data is not compiled until after the day is over in a total dump of all of it at once, then it can't be useful for all it would be for.

Wondering if this would be possible in Multicharts?

Just out of curiosity, do you think that looking at one's PnL all day could be counter productive for your students?

I think looking at your daily PnL will diminish your abilities to concentrate overtime.
Perhaps what you are looking is more a performance based chart,

I personally use fundseeder, free and highly recommended.
