Hi,
Is it possible to add a new column into the trade history for trade duration please? It would help with analysing strategies to see if I can close losers down earlier for a smaller loss.
Thanks

I made another suggestion for having a draw-down column. EAch trade's pip gain and duration must be expressed as a function of draw down in order to quantify the risk the trade was exposed to. If the trade was to long in draw-down mode before turning a profit it would mean the trader was lucky. We don't want to trade on luck but on insight.

It's a good suggestion and it would be useful but it would be very hard to work out for MyFxBook.

Could it be setup so we can select (defined in the Settings section) which columns are shown in our history/active trades. Now that would be cool. May have to have a MAX number of columns coz I see many potential other columns being required in the future...........
