New Charts – Duration

Sunday, January 30th, 2011

Today we’ve added new charts to your tool box – Duration:

The new charts can be found in the advanced statistics window, under the ‘Duration’ tab.

The charts include 4 duration analysis options:

  • Growth
  • Profit
  • Pips
  • Lots

Looking at the new charts will help you quickly evaluate and characterize the trading system (long terms, intraday, or scalping) and its consistency.

Oanda users – please keep in mind the current method of connecting to Oanda accounts will stop working on January 31st (tomorrow) as discussed here: http://blog.myfxbook.com/2011/01/03/oanda-accounts-will-not-be-supported/ To keep using Myfxbook with Oanda accounts, you’ll have to use their MetaTrader platform.

Have a great trading week!

New Section – System Comparison, Oanda Accounts Update

Sunday, January 23rd, 2011

New Features

There are thousands of systems connected to Myfxbook, and you’ve probably browsed to several of them to check out the numbers and compare it either to your performance or someone else’s. Up until now there wasn’t an option to compare systems back-to-back, in order to quickly evaluate/compare the systems in question. Well,  no you can with the systems comparison page!

There are several key features to this new section:

  • Compare up to 5 systems simultaneously.
  • Quickly identify the best/worst values for each metric using the in-built coloring (green for best and red for worst).
  • Create and save an unlimited number of your comparison profiles for quick future reference.
  • Use a permalink to share the comparison of your selected systems with others.
  • Compare main metrics in one chart (gain, profit, equity and balance).

*The accounts for comparison are based on your watchlist and your private accounts in your portfolio.

Oanda Accounts Update

As some of you might have heard, Oanda are going to release the MetaTrader platform as one of their available platforms for trading – traders who will use the Oanda MetaTrader platform will be able to keep using Myfxbook as usual, so that’s great news! :)

If you have any comments or suggestions about the new section, do let us know!

We’re working on more new and exciting sections, so stay tuned! :)

Regards,

The Myfxbook team.

Oanda Accounts Will No Longer Be Supported

Monday, January 3rd, 2011

Guys, we’ve been waiting patiently for about a year now to receive an API from Oanda which will allow us to solve the expiring connection issue and remove any existing errors. Unfortunately, we haven’t received it and we’ve also been notified by Oanda that the current method we use to connect to Oanda accounts will stop working on January 31st (due to changes on their side).

We apologize for any inconvenience this is causing you, but there’s nothing we can do at this point. Myfxbook will no longer support Oanda accounts starting from January 31st.

There is no time frame on when they will complete the API, so any questions regarding this topic, please ask Oanda directly.

Thank you,

The Myfxbook team.

Update – Oanda will be supported through their MetaTrader platform.
