Equity Chart

Equity Chart

The necessity of modernization is that the original indicator does not always work correctly with some instruments. For example, some brokers use the tickers with suffixes, prefixes. Also, some CFD contracts and futures were considered incorrectly. This version uses a new function of contract value evaluation, which allows working with any instrument. It retains the original concept and ideology of the indicator.

With the default settings, the indicator displays two lines: the line of the balance sheet and the line of the equity. Additionally, it is possible to display the level of the used margin (as a histogram) and free equity (additional line) throughout the trading history, which allows assessing the aggressiveness of trade. The trading statistics (can be displayed in any corner of the chart): yields for the month, year or the entire period of trading, the maximum drawdown (absolute and percentage), and also the calculation of the profit factor and the recovery factor.

Operation features:

At the first start of the indicator, the chart may be distorted. This means that the history of symbols is not synchronized for that moment. In this case, it is necessary to switch the timeframes “back and forth” several times or download the history forcibly for all symbols by opening the corresponding charts. Chart auto-update when switching accounts is implemented in the new version of the indicator.

For the correct operation of the indicator, the trade history in the “History Center” must be fully downloaded.
