24 March 2009



I found no trade in the first 30 minutes yesterday. (A short opportunity did appear later in the session.)

I’ve been trying to settle on a graphic that shows relevant information each day, and have succeeded in arranging the trading windows so that I can capture it all in a single screenshot.

When I do trade, the top line will show the P&L for the day (in US dollars), and also my AUD account balance. Beneath that I will display a 5-minute chart of the day’s action. Finally, at the bottom, you will see a list of the day’s trades.

Even on days when I don’t trade, the Australian account balance will fluctuate a bit. That is because, although the account is designated in AUD, my broker actually holds it in two components (AUD and USD). As the exchange rate varies, the value of the USD component changes.
