Please add VWAP as a custom study

This one's a super popular request. The issue we ran into at first was that everyone who asked for it had a different idea about what VWAP timeframe they wanted (e.g. intraday, 2-day, 5-day, etc). It's unlikely we'll add of them, but rather just add the intraday version.

What we have on the to-do list right now is a VWAP that is calculated from the start of the trading day (regular session only for stocks), and it would be shown for intraday trades only. And for purposes of this calculation, a futures "day" would be the trading day from yesterday afternoon's open to today's afternoon close.

Would that cover what you were looking for?

If you have any questions about Tradervue, please send me a Private Message or use the BMT "Ask Me Anything" thread.

In the embed code you use:

<script src='http://www.tradervue.com/sharedt.js?id=1786859'></script>

try adding a "width=" to the end of the url, like this:

<script src='http://www.tradervue.com/sharedt.js?id=1786859&width=464'></script>

Max width is 464px - same max width that our widget allows.

Thanks, that helped a lot.

Mike

Would that cover what you were looking for?

Start with the session VWAP based on 1-minute granularity. The new session for the ES begins at 6:00PM eastern time. For example:

Thursday's session: start time = 6:00pm ET Wednesday, end time = 5:15pm ET Thursday.

From there you can add a weekly VWAP, but I think the daily session VWAP will cover 90% of what people want if I had to guess.

We might be able to add another option to change the href target - we can't do this by default, as not everyone wants this, but if we add an option you could again perhaps add it to the embed script you use here. Let me take a look at this later this afternoon and see what I can do.

Okey dokey - this is in now. If &t=b to the URL, the links will open in a new window/tab. Your new embed code should look something like this:

<script src='http://www.tradervue.com/sharedt.js?id=1786859&width=464&t=b'></script>

Also FYI, the big space between your avatar and the price chart is where an excerpt of the trade's notes are shown, if you add notes to the trade. Here's an example showing a trade with notes:

Would it be possible to allow importing of the daily trade report that InteractiveBroker sends out?

I can forward a couple of examples to you via email if you need them. They are HTML, but extremely simple formatting.

I am using your bookmark javascript widget, but the problem is I have to login to IB every day to do that, which requires token authentication, generate the report, download, etc. And that report isn't available until midnight.

It would be far easier if I could take the email that IB sends immediately on the close, where they attach the daily log, and then import that directly.

Happy to take a look - forward over the email, and I can see what it looks like.

Even better, though, we've had some folks write some code to get trade data out of the IB desktop, and automatically import it into Tradervue using our API in near real time. If that's of interest, our API docs are here:

Nicely done. I've sent the email to you. I'm not in programming mode right now, so would prefer a solution from you

What does time 'adjusted' mean? These are all direct imports from IB, I've not adjusted anything. If I click 'detail', all the time stamps seem accurate to me.

Please register on futures.io to view futures trading content such as post attachment(s), image(s), and screenshot(s).


And why is there no PnL graph on the top right?

"Adjusted" means it's a multi-day trade that was adjusted on this day (as opposed to opened or closed). Here's a blog post describing in detail how Tradervue handles multi-day trades and P&L realization:

The running P&L charts only show data from intraday trades; since you didn't have any on this day, there's no chart.

Greg, I was wondering if you could come up with a way to show performance on a slider that would show "what-if" scenarios if a trade had been entered earlier or later, or if the exit had been earlier or later.

Say for example, if the last 100 trades had been exited 5 minutes, 30 minutes, or 1 hour later than they were. What would happen to performance?

I felt like @Tradervue was in a good position to attempt this, because you have the real-time market data to go along with the executions.

My goal in such an exercise would be to compare my actual performance against a hypothetical performance, to see if I am timing the market well.
