I have a request to improve how currently QuantAnalyzer list orders from imported Strategy Reports.
It should be very simple to implement, but very powerful and helpful for users.
When I use the What If - analysis I want a separate column for
This way I could order the trades by the hour of
the day and see if there are many losses on certain hours of the day,
and much more importantly I will be able to see at the right side if
those losses tend to be big or small. Same test could be done to see at what hour of the day the big winners tend to occur.
Currently a column has date and hour in one. So it is not possible to rank by the hour of the day.
Thanks to your QA tool I have dramatically improved the performance of many EA's by finding the right hours within a day to trade the EA (or which hours to filter out).
But if there are many orders in the backtest of hundreths of days it is impossible for me to list the trades by HOUR of the day (entry-hour).
See attached photo for what I'd like to see:
Ability to rank trades by hour (of entry).
If I could rank trades by the hour, it would allow me to go to all trades of 04 entry hour and see immediately on the right side whether there were few big losses of many small losses and I could see if
there are many big winning trades or where the winning trades relatively small. In one overview I could get much better idea about how good/bad the trades tend to be during that hour.
Of course, if you guys want you could go 1 step further and implement this for YEAR and even Closing hour as well.
You want to go completely Pro? Than give the user the ability to select time periods like "Show: Trades opening between 09:30 and 09:45".
I don't need this myself but I know a ton of traders that would love to be able to find detail statistics of specific strategies that trade at specific intervals only.
