Tradervue is a cloud based journaling site with a slew of analytics and broker/platform imports including Ninja/Sierra. I had been keeping an excel journal and found it cumbersome to update and share with others. Tradevue's cloud implementation is great with a sharing feature, chart plotting, even a mentoring read-only option. But what impressed me most and prompted me to do this write up was the support, I had a question about X-Trader import late at night and not only did Greg offer to add this option to the site (I actually no longer require this) but he promptly replied to the mail I sent at 10pm at night PST, I don't expect this from any vendor but it sure showed me the commitment to his users in developing their needs.

I already gushed a bit about Greg and Tradervue over on the webinar thread, but, as Mike suggested, posting on the review thread is the way to go. So here's my review of the Tradervue journaling software.

Features
Can Tradervue do a lot of stuff? Absolutely. You can track equities, options, and futures. You can import your trade data from about 190189270 different brokers. You can share trades and view others' shared trades. You can analyze your personal trade data to your little statistical heart's content. You can do about a million different types of reports. You can be as verbose as you want via the journal notes. Tagging is virtually endless. Yes, it's got tons of features.

Flexibility
Like Burger King, Tradervue lets you have it your way. There are tons of things you can do to customize how you use and interact with your journal. The importance of this is being able to utilize the software that is apprpopriate for you and your style of trading. Something critical to my own progress could be meaningless noise to someone else.

Function
Smooth like butter. Very responsive. And just about everything is clickable. There is a ridiculous degree of drilldown available. Wanna see how well you do trading ES to the long side on trend days during the first hour of trading on Mondays after your favorite NFL team lost by a field goal in overtime in an away game? Go for it. Okay, maybe not the NFL part. But you can easily and quickly get about as granular as you want with your analysis. The interface is very straightforward and a cinch to navigate. It cohesively combines the features and flexibility so that traders can painlessly do the two things Tradervue was designed to facilitate: journal and analyze.

Usefulness
This ties back to flexibility; the usefulness of the software is going to depend on how much you put it into it. The bottom line is the software erases any excuses when it comes to understanding your own trading stats. You don't have to spend hours and hours doing this stuff, but you do need to be active. Passively dumping your data into the journal will probably not have much impact on your trading and it will be severely underutilizing Tradervue's big, brawny analytical biceps.

Service
I saved this for last because it's what really sold me on the service. Proactively contacted about a data import error I was getting? Seriously? That's virtually unheard of. Since my first contact with Greg, I've had the pleasure of discussing a number of things related to Tradervue and trading. And guess what? When Greg puts something on his list, a funny thing happens. It usually doesn't take long before he is able to mark that itme off his list. It's very clear that Greg takes to heart what his subscribers would like to see in the software. If it's technically feasible and is congruent with Greg's overall vision of the software, there's a good chance it at least gets considered for future implementation.

Conclusion
This should not come as a surprise, but I really like Tradervue. It just gets so many things right, it's hard not to appreciate such a fantastic service. And I truly believe Greg strives to make it an indispensible tool for traders. Everyone always wants the best charting software for the markets; doesn't the market of YOU deserve the best software to analyze and present YOUR data?

@omni72, can you comment on the trade grouping for futures trading? Have you used it? (scaling in/out, grouping as 1 trade).

Also, can you comment on the liquidity feature for futures trades? I forgot to ask him how this is implemented, if he is using a flag in the exported data from the platform to indicate if it was a limit or market order, or if he is really looking at real time data for that market to see if the trade was filled immediately or if it was on the book.

I see that you use Sierra Chart, so can you tell me if everything exports correctly and if there are any missing data gaps or holes (something that Sierra isn't supporting, etc)?

I have multiple copies of Sierra Chart running. One for charts, and others for execution thru multiple brokers. I am wondering if you can comment on how tying these separate reports together would work. I would like to just add a 'tag' to indicate which broker the trade was placed with, and I guess I would just export one report per broker and import into Tradervue, but I wonder if it causes any trouble with overlapping trades and etc. Also, sometimes I trade the same instrument with two different brokers, one as a day trade and one as a swing trade, so I wonder how it would deal with that.

Excellent questions, @Big Mike. I'll tackle them inline:


Big Mike View Post
@omni72, can you comment on the trade grouping for futures trading? Have you used it? (scaling in/out, grouping as 1 trade).



For comparison, I've attached a screenshot of some trades imported using each available grouping method: Normal, Merged, and Split.



For me, Split works the best. I do think the ability to track the individual legs of a trade would be a potentially useful addition. I'd be curious to see how the three different grouping methods play out for traders who swing a bigger stick.


Quoting 
Also, can you comment on the liquidity feature for futures trades? I forgot to ask him how this is implemented, if he is using a flag in the exported data from the platform to indicate if it was a limit or market order, or if he is really looking at real time data for that market to see if the trade was filled immediately or if it was on the book.

Here is a link to the info page on the Liquidity Reports: Tradervue | Liquidity Reports. This one's pretty easy to comment on: I haven't used them as they are currently designed for equities trades. Below is a snippet from that info page describing the logic:




Quoting 
I see that you use Sierra Chart, so can you tell me if everything exports correctly and if there are any missing data gaps or holes (something that Sierra isn't supporting, etc)?

Funny you mention SC. If you go to the Import Trades section and click on the drop down, you will find something a little interesting. Among the supported brokers/platforms is OEC, Sierra, and Sierra (OEC). I helped discover the need for the last one Since I was using Sierra with OEC, that is the only one I can speak to and it imported everything as expected.


Quoting 
I have multiple copies of Sierra Chart running. One for charts, and others for execution thru multiple brokers. I am wondering if you can comment on how tying these separate reports together would work. I would like to just add a 'tag' to indicate which broker the trade was placed with, and I guess I would just export one report per broker and import into Tradervue, but I wonder if it causes any trouble with overlapping trades and etc. Also, sometimes I trade the same instrument with two different brokers, one as a day trade and one as a swing trade, so I wonder how it would deal with that.

Mike

That, my friend, is out of my current league Conceptually, I understand what you are asking, but I don't have expertise or experience in those situations to comment. However, I'm certain Greg would be happy to address the current/planned feasibility of the scenarios you described.

Also, I wanted to take a quick moment to expand on a couple things regarding some of the available features and my use of Tradervue. Your question regarding the Liquidity Reports helped remind me that some features/reports are only available for equity trades. It may be useful to keep in mind that Greg started Tradervue as a tool for equity traders. Even today, if you go to the Shared section of the site, you'll notice the majority of the Top 100 Symbols are still equity symbols.

Hopefully, events like the webinar you hosted will continue to help bring more attention (and therefore, features) to futures, options, and eventually Forex. I didn't mention it in my review because it doesn't really impact how I use the site/software. But, in fairness to those who may be interested in equities only reports, I wanted to give the heads up now.

Next is my use of Tradervue. I started using it in the spring (early March, I think). Well, by late-April, I was starting my first combine with TST. At that time T4 was not a supported broker/platform and TST automatically posts your trading sessions to your profile, so I wasn't getting to use Tradervue as much. I still used it some on my personal account, but most of my energies were spent on TST. I never fell away from the software, it just wasn't a daily tool. Then a few days ago in a blog post, Greg wrote that T4 is now supported. JOY! So now I'm getting to add it back as a daily driver

I hope that answers some of your questions and adds a bit more perspective.

Thanks @omni72. I fired the multiple brokerage/overlapping trades question to Greg and will see what he says.

I understand on the liquidity feature, and I can't think of a way to make it work in futures without additional reporting being included within the platform (ie: inside bid/ask/last at time of trade). I bet Sierra Chart would be willing to add that...

Anybody familiar with other products like trading-journal-spreadsheet.com? It's a one-time fee of $127 for single instrument or $199 for multiple. That price sure has an appeal over Tradervue $25 per month forever.

Off-topic for this thread. Do a search, if an existing review does not exist, create a new thread in the Vendor Reviews section.

Thanks @omni72. I fired the multiple brokerage/overlapping trades question to Greg and will see what he says.

Greg's response:


Quoting 
If you do separate imports for each broker, and tag them on import with the broker name, that would work as you want. A couple of caveats:

- if you have overlapping trades, you might find unexpected results by default, as executions from multiple brokers could be merged. To work around this, switch the import mode to "Split when possible" - if you do that, then once a trade is closed, new executions will never be applied to it. So as long as you don't have open trades at the end of each import, everything should work as you expect.

- if you have executions from multiple brokers (in multiple imports) in the same instrument with exactly the same timestamp, the execution may be rejected as a duplicate (you'll see a message to that effect after the import completes). We have a special mode in the importer to disable duplicate checking - shoot a note to support@tradervue.com and we can send over info on how to use that if you need it.

And as for simultaneous swing and intraday positions, that's trickier...Tradervue will group those executions together. We have considered ways to work around this, but at the moment the positions will be merged.

Got this from Greg today.

Hey Mike,

Just thought I'd give you an update...based on feedback I've gotten from your users, we have now implemented:

- renko charts
- volume bar charts
- range bar charts
- drawdown report

Plus a few other minor things.

Thought you'd be interested! :-)

Thanks,

-GR

Sounds like he is quick with the enhancements, and heard from several futures.io (formerly BMT) members.

So I just visited the Trader Vue site again, and they added volume, range, and renko bars. Took them only a couple weeks to implement this. I am very impressed by this and will be signing up for an account that supports this.

I asked during the webinar, if there was a limit on how many tags can be entered with or filtered on in viewing the results of trades, and Greg said there was not. Wondering what is the difference from that, and the new enhancement?

How does Tradervue compare to what TST offers in their reports, if you are doing a combine/trading with them?

TST's reports basically give you a grouped overview of your trading session. It doesn't break it out into individual trades, contracts, sequences, and so forth. You have access to the data to build your own reports in Excel, but the reports you'll see via your account portal will look like this:



And that's really not a knock against TST. Tradervue is designed to be a full-featured online trading journal that includes trade reports. The feeling I get is that the TST daily reports are more like their way of saying, "This is what we saw from you today. We assume you are tracking your trading progress in greater detail in a journal somewhere else."

Of course, I'd love to see TST partner up with Tradervue so that traders could get their stuff automatically linked and uploaded to their TV journal within their TST profile.

Hope that helps.

Edit: Something I really hope to see from both is the addition of MAE/MFE type metrics.

Here is an idea for Tradervue:

List as a percentage the total amount of ticks captured from your PnL as compared to the day's range. For example, if the range is 200 ticks and you captured 100 ticks total with your trades, 50%. I like to keep score this way.

Needing a better solution than what I had to really track and improve my performance, I just signed up for a trial of TV. I must say I am very impressed. I will go with the gold level as it has some extra reports that I need (such as breakdown on make/take liquidity). Within a few minutes of importing my data, I found that the commissions were being incorrectly calculated. I emailed Greg, and within 30 minutes he had not only replied but had fixed the code so that it imported correctly. Wow. I'm impressed, and that's hard to do. There are a handful of business who actually know what customer service is, and from my brief experience, Greg is tops in that select few. Have only used it a couple of hours, but it's two big thumbs up from me so far.

I have had a similar experience with tradervue.com. Greg is exceptionally good at customer service and taking care of the users' needs. I had signed up a couple of months ago and then I needed to take a break so I switched from my Silver subscription back to the trial while I re-evaluate things. I happened to do that about an hour after the payment had been withdrawn towards the next month's subscription fee so I emailed Greg asking if something could be done to reverse the payment since I did not intend to use the service at least for the next month. He reversed the transaction within minutes of me sending that email no questions asked.

Thats A+ customer service and the website/software/features is top notch. I will be back to using the Silver subscription soon.

Thanks @Big Mike, I used the link after I signed up for the trial but it seems I can retroactively apply it, so will be doing that for sure.

Hi,

I am looking to trial Tradervue and import trades from Interactive Brokers. I followed the instructions for importing but Tradervue reports that there are no trades to import. There are a various futures trades and also an SPY trade so I thought the free account would capture these for importing.

The import instructions say to go to "Report Management, and select Activity Downloads." This does not exist on my IB platform but there is Account management > reports > activity > statements - so I tried this. I tried via the import bookmark and manually but get the same error.

I also use Sierra Chart so should I be using this to import instead?

Thanks

You should be able to C & P the text into Tradervue from IB. Looks like a nice service if you're trading platform doesn't have some type of reporting already. I.e. ninja trader.

Brian

Quick update. Greg from Tradervue helped me sort this out. I was not using the required "TradeLog" format previously.

cheers

Hey guys anyone have any more input on tradervue regarding scaling in/out of trades? Is it easy to import the data to Ninjatrader? Are the reports generated accurate?

thanks!

Johnny

I have tradervue record a trade as from flat-to-flat. So any scaling in and out is all included in that one trade. Setting below.



Tradervue also provide a link to an optional third party indicator for Ninjatrader that automatically uploads your trades to Tradervue rather than having to do it manually. I have it and it works well.

I wanted to give a review of Tradervue.com as one of my 2017 resolutions was to keep a more detailed journal of pre/post market analysis, trades and overall market thoughts and trading ideas.

I googled Trading journal, found Tradervue.com (along with a few others) and was led right back here to FIO for info. Duh...., should have started here first!

@Big Mike this should make you happy, along with the fact that reading about the evolution of one's trading a detailed journal is without a doubt a definite recommendation / requirement.

Using the discount for Elite Members, I signed up for the Gold plan as I want all of the detail possible and full reporting. I was doing much of this manually and my "journal" was rather loose and not consolidated in one place.

Tradervue.com takes care of all of this and it's rather simple to use. If anyone is considering doing it, I'd say go for it. With the Elite discount, it's a no-brainer. Journal entries are as easy as using a word processor program or Wordpress type of program with tags, images and the like being very easy to use.

It's web based, so no software to download, which is ideal for me as I trade from 3 different locations during the week and if you're to travel it's as simple as logging on to the web site.

I needed a little assistance with the trade imports and had some ?'s about commissions and Greg was super responsive in getting back to me via email for help and work around on commissions. That's the only thing I've found thus far is that I use three (3) difference brokers, one of which includes commissions in their reports, the other two do not.

I was able to set a commission amount for trade imports, but the other two (2) brokers have different commission amounts. The work around is to edit the commission amounts for broker # 3 after import, so the reports accurate to the penny, which is important to me. I did make a recommendation to Greg for a longer term solution and he's checking in to it and hopefully he can make something happen. In the interim, manually editing the commissions is easy enough, so I'll hope @Tradervue can do something there to make the process smoother.

I have a few other ideas I'll be sending over to Greg, but for all intents and purposes, Tradervue.com is a fantastic piece of software with lots of great features, detailed reporting and ease of use.

I'm attaching my 1st full journal entry, which I initially was "tagging" my broker on each trade, but realized once I started importing trades that it was not necessary to do this as the broker name was brought in on each import via tags that I created.

This is a follow up review for Tradervue Trading Journal - Journal, Analyze, and Share your trades as I've been using it now for a full 30 days.

I've tried to be religious about entering my pre/during/post market analysis, trades, thoughts, etc. and have so far been good about doing so.

I've also made it a point on Sunday to review the full week and look for strengths, weakness and any patterns in not only the markets, but also in my own trading style and execution.

The reporting function of @Tradervue has made this very easy to do as the reporting is very versatile and has all kinds of ways to view your trade data.

I want to emphasize to anyone that keeping a journal is, without a doubt, a step to becoming a better trader and showing commitment and discipline in the trading business.

My only regret is that I didn't start doing it sooner.
