Can you plot support and resistance levels on the charts that you save for later review?

You can't annotate the auto-generated charts (at least not yet), but you can embed your own charts if you want to - quite a few folks do this. There is a help page about this at Tradervue | Adding Images to Trades

Reporting by ticks


Most of the time I don't talk here about the new features added to Tradervue (you can always find them on our blog), but this was another one of those things that was based on a ton of feedback from folks I met here.

For futures trades, you can now run any of the reports in Tradervue in terms of ticks, rather than in USD. This was a super popular request, and it wasn't until the risk reporting went in a few weeks ago that it dawned on me how to integrate tick reporting nicely.

There's a post about it here: New tick reporting

Hope some of you find this useful - and keep the questions and feedback coming!

NinjaTrader plugin for Tradervue

Hey guys - this will almost certainly be of interest, since I know many of you are using NinjaTrader.

The folks over at Indicator Warehouse have built a plugin for NinjaTrader called Journal Lync, which will automatically import your trades during the trading day into Tradervue. You just install the plugin on your computer, set it up with your Tradervue account info, and then every trade you make will be auto-imported into Tradervue within a few seconds. Pretty cool...and it's even free!

Blog post about it: Automated import from NinjaTrader | Tradervue Blog

Greg,

I would be interested in using your application for my backtesting analysis. In other words, I would import large subsets of trades (thousands) and then use your app to analyze them. I have hundreds of different backtests containing hundreds of thousands of trades that I would like to analyze.

What I would need is to know what your data formatting requirements are, so that I can have my strategies output (CSV) the necessary information for you to then import and analyze.

I would like to be able to save each import as a unique name or a way to group all of those trades together so I can easily run comparative reports from one backtest to another.

I also would like to utilize the tag system, having my strategy generate "tags" for each trade so I can group and analyze or filter within a particular backtest.

I searched around on your site but couldn't find info on how to format the data so that info can be imported easily.

Last, I know you use an external data provider for historical market info. How many years does this data go back? Some of my backtesting will go back many years and would like to know if this is a problem for some of the statistics like MAE/MFE.

Hi Mike,

See this doc for formatting for the generic importer:
Tradervue | Generic Import Format

I would like to be able to save each import as a unique name or a way to group all of those trades together so I can easily run comparative reports from one backtest to another.

You can tag all trades for a specific import. Or if you want to make sure these trades are kept completely separate (e.g. not merged with other trades from other imports), then import using account tags. You'd essentially treat each backtest as a specific "account", as referenced in this doc:
Tradervue | Account Tags


Big Mike View Post
I also would like to utilize the tag system, having my strategy generate "tags" for each trade so I can group and analyze or filter within a particular backtest.

At the moment, you can tag all trades in an import, or you can tag them in the user interface later, but there isn't a way to specify tags in the import data file. You could generate smaller files (so a file contains trades for one backtest that should have a specific set of tags) - to do that use an account tag for the backtest, and regular tags for the other tags. You could also do this with the import API, if you were inclined to write some code - docs at https://github.com/tradervue/api-docs

Our intraday data is available for up to 3 years back. I think the daily data is longer, but stats like MFE/MAE all use the intraday data for calculations.

Thanks Greg. Using the API should be fine for me, but I will need to check it more thoroughly to know for sure.

If the API ends up not being the preferred method, it would be nice if you could allow tags to be imported on a per-trade basis with your generic import format. This would make what I am doing today extremely simple to adapt to your importer, whereas writing to the API is more complex because I would need to create a separate C# app to do it, basically reading my import file and then submitting to the API one trade at a time instead of just sending the file to your importer.

I guess I am just being lazy, what I want is a way to quickly test a few backtests without writing the API code If it works and I want to use it on an ongoing basis then of course the API method is preferred.

If the API ends up not being the preferred method, it would be nice if you could allow tags to be imported on a per-trade basis with your generic import format.

This has definitely come up before, and I've looked into implementing it. The complexity comes from the fact that tags are applied to logical trades, whereas a "line" in a CSV file is a single execution. If tags were allowed on each execution line in the file, we could merge them to apply to the trade the execution becomes part of. In the trivial case where you have an open and a close in a file, this is pretty straightforward. But in the more complex case, where say a new execution is being applied to an existing trade, that new tag would be applied to the old trade. And if for some reason the merge mode wasn't set the way you wanted, you could end up with some tags applied in a way you didn't want, and could potentially be difficult to undo.

All that said - I do like the idea...just haven't yet figured out the "right" way to implement it to avoid potential pitfalls...

Hey Greg, Have you considered a desktop only version?

No immediate plans for such a beast. I had a long post about this typed here, but decided most of it probably wasn't interesting to anyone but me :-) So rather than bore you with all of that, basically we feel like we can provide more functionality and more advanced analytics for more people by having it available as an online service.

Greg
