    Thaks a lot.


    • Did you look under “indicators” after you installed the ELD? Look for the indicator “Equity Curve”. Let me know if this helps or not.

    Your Download links for the TS equity curve indicators(eld,TSW), is not working. Are you planning on updating the link? I would like to test.

    • The links should be working. I sent you copies of the downloadable file to your personal email. Let me know if you have other questions.

    Is there a way to have the indicator track the max equity that the trade held instead of what the equity is at the close of the bar?

    • A slight modification to code should allow it to do this. However, the Trade Recorder function will do this now. It will record the maximum favorable excursion and write it to a file. You can find more about it here http://systemtradersuccess.com/trade_recorder_function/

      • Wes_Y says:

        Yes, I’ve seen the Trade Recorder, but from what I understand it only has the MFE on a per trade basis, and I was trying to see it on a per bar basis. I would like to see if there is a pattern in equity of the trades my system generates. Unfortunately I am still a very amateur coder and have not been able to find the right syntax to modify the original code to do what I would like.
