Plotting trades on chart

the objective is to plot trades on chart so that it can be revieweed periodically to learn to trade better. the objective

  • is to produce a generic afl that will take in the symbol, trade dates and prices and plot on a chart.
  • support different timeframes so the plotting is still visible. daily, weekly, intraday, 5 minute/15 minute
  • ability to support position scaling as there may be multiple trade entries /exits

 

this afl needs the input in terms of static variables as follows. so you may need an adapter that will take your trades and put it to afl.


// defines if it is a stock or forex.
StaticVarSetText( "TradeType" , "Stocks" ); //Stocks|Forex
// defines the forex symbol
StaticVarSetText( "forexSymbol" , "SBUX" ); //"EUR.USD-IDEALPRO-CASH|
// defines the stock symbol
StaticVarSetText( "StockSymbol", "SBUX" ); // "YHOO"
// long or short trade.
StaticVarSetText( "ShortOrLong" , "Long" ); //"Short|Long"
// entry prices
StaticVarSetText( "EntryPrice" , "14.5,15.5" );
// exit prices

StaticVarSetText( "EntryTime", "142500,120000" );
// exit time in time number comma delimited

// trade id. its an internal key for me
StaticVarSetText( "Tradeid" , "4" );
// trade strategy.
StaticVarSetText( "TradeStrategy" , "fsdfdsfds" );
// any comments on trade
StaticVarSetText( "TradeComments" , "this is the comment" );
/* sets no of entries so that the code loops when printing the number
of trdes.
if 1, then ther should be only 1 entry date/time
if there are more thatn 1 entry or exits, the number of comma delimited entries exits should match the static variable NoOfEntries and same applies for exits
