Trade Analysis (Trade Order Form)

[We are currently working and improving this feature. Please feel free to reach out with any questions or feedback]


The Trade order form allows you to focus in-depth on one trade and analyze/customize it. This is very helpful if you want to customize a trade from the scanner or test a trade you have manually.


After you finish analyzing the trade, you can:

  1. Add the trade to the trade log (see knowledgebase article)
  2. Send the trade to your broker (see the Send Trade to Broker article)




Usecases


Here are some of the use-cases you can use the Trade order form for:

  • Track the trade in the Trade log: Adding a trade to the trade log allows you to track it and see how it develops over time. Also, after adding trades over time, you can improve your trading system. 
  • Customize a trade from the scanner: Our scanner picks specific options for your trades. Sometimes you want to change them or see the tradeoffs between different options. You can do that in the trade order form.
  • Analyze a trade manually: You can test a trade you have manually and see the PL profile, breakeven points on a chart, statistics, and more. 
  • Analyze a trade in-depth: The trade order form is interactive and instant so that you can test different ideas quickly. Every time you make a change, you see all the information updated, and you can check the PL profile, breakeven points, statistics, and more. 


How to get to the Trade order form


In the scanner: Click on the result you want to analyze in the table, and from the details tab, click the 'trade' button.


Manually: Go to the 'trade log' tab and click 'new trade.'
