After reading some of the other threads that utilize statistics to help in their trading I decided to begin this thread to help others that may just be starting to look at this subject.
It can be quite intimidating going through some of the threads discussing statistics so I am hoping this thread will allow some of 'us' newbies in this subject feel more comfortable asking some of the 'dumb' questions we may have. I know that some of the more experienced in this forum will be more than helpful also.
I have attached a list of Statistics Definitions that were compiled from the Ninjatrader Version 6 Help Guild to get us started.

Good stuff NMtrader. But you posted in Journals, I moved it to General.
Due to time constraints, please do not PM me if your question can be resolved or answered on the forum.
Need help? 1) Stop changing things. No new indicators, charts, or methods. Be consistent with what is in front of you first. 2) Start a journal and post to it daily with the trades you made to show your strengths and weaknesses. 3) Set goals for yourself to reach daily. Make them about how you trade, not how much money you make. 4) Accept responsibility for your actions. Stop looking elsewhere to explain away poor performance. 5) Where to start as a trader? Watch this webinar and read this thread for hundreds of questions and answers. 6) Help using the forum? Watch this video to learn general tips on using the site.
