First off, love the general layout of this site! Finally one common profile for all your trading accounts.

I see one thing that would help me a lot since I mainly run automated trading with the MetaTrader 4 platform and that is usage of the magicnumber registered with each trade. That number essentially tells us which EA made the trade (it is 0 if manual trade) and it would be very informative to be able to filter the trades using it. I'm thinking that you also could register one or several (some use more than one) magicnumbers to a namned EA and get graphs/ piecharts using the name instead of the actual number.

Would you like to see the whole account analyzed based only on the selected magic number?

- If so, how do you take into account the deposits, as this is the main factor for calculating the yield/balance charts.

- Or do you want to see only the monthly analytics per magic number?

I'm thinking mostly of monthly analytic per magic number. The best would be a customizable period thou I think. At the moment I do weekly analysis using excel, so the possibility to set periods as weeks would rock.

Oh, and in the Summary I would like to be able to switch between currency pairs or EAs. So I get a table with all the registered EAs (filtered out via the magicnumbers) long, short and total pips gained.

Would it not be better to run the EA on a seperate account?

However, having an analysis table that can be grouped by EA would provide valuable information for single accounts running multiple EA's

I don't mix manual and automatic trades on the same account, but I do mix a few EAs that in a few cases trades the same pair(s). It would be great to be able to easily see how each EA / pair is doing. I have to do this in excel now (and have been before also of course), but we have all the information needed to automate this analysis here.

At least let us see the magicnumber and order comment for the trades so we can sort the history on each column. But the best really would be to be able to register a magicnumber as connected to say 'FAP Turbo V48' and another to 'MD Pro v1.01' and have piecharts and performance analysis for both (both these robots trade EURCHF for me for example).

Can't say for sure since it was one of the more complex features requested, but we hope to release by the end of the month.
