Great piece of work.
A few questions:
1. Can it "merge" different accounts together?
I've lots of EA in various MT4 accounts and I want to compare these EA together from these accounts.
I would like to select the good EA from each accounts and then merge these EA data together so that I can compare and select these good EA from various accounts to see what's the performance going to be like as a portfolio (on certain trading days/periods)
2. Can it collate the data from excel files in the format in Fxblue?
In Fxblue, it collate many trading accounts into 1 portfolio so instead of going to 10 different accounts to download the history transactions, it would be easier to download all these information (from various accounts) in 1 click from my FxBlue so that I can compare these EA and select them into 1 portfolio.
3. In additions to trade number, can there be a vertical line to serve as daily separator with the dates below on the horizontal axis?
When I view each individual EA's equity chart, there is Trade number on the horizontal (x axis), it would be helpful if there is a daily/period line separator like the MT4 so that I can see there number of trades being trade in a day and date.
1. I will know how many trades were done in a day, trade frequency
2. I will know which days the EA aren't doing well (breakout or ranging) and go to that particular date to examine what's the market conditions and thereby know whether this is a ranging EA or Breakout EA. Better still I can look for EA that can do well in most market conditions.
4. Can you add date/period filter to look for which EA perform best during ranging/breakout periods?
I want to group my EA into 3 categories, Breakout EA and Ranging EA and Volatile EA and then from these 3 groups of EA, select and mix them accordingly into 1 portfolio.
I'm looking for a software whereby I can on, the vertical column view the list of EA I have and on horizontal rows are the daily P/L so that I can highlight the days into 3 types of markets, ranging, breakout and volatile. So that I can know how each EA perform during these different markets and aid me in my EA selection. Cos I want to create a portfolio that have a mixture of these EA but knowing how their performance individually would help me understand what's the ratio to use. For example, 50% ranging EA, 30% Breakout EA and 20% volatile EA. Knowing the "optimal" ratio is very important in order to ensure the portfolio is making money in most of the time. I can have many profitable EA but if I don't combine them correctly, even if they are profitable overall, but with the "wrong" combination, I can still face daily loses because other EA in the portfolio can pull down the overall profit.
Most of us select EA based on their overall performance metrics without taking into account the period in which it is trading. If I were to go about with the overall performance metrics as my selection criteria, I would probably ended up with 80% Breakout EA. However, if a portfolio is made up of 80% Breakout EA, it would face many days of drawn down. Hence to "stablise" the portfolio, I need to mix my portfolio with different types of EA for different types of market conditions. Thus "synchronizing" these EA based on the same period they are trading and then comparing them side by side is a "fair" comparison (and better selection process) then to select these EA base on their overall results if these EA results were based on different trading/backtesting periods. In another words, it is not fair to compare the overall results of EA 1 that traded in 2016 with another EA's overall results that was traded in 2015.
