Growth and Balance indicator – trading statistic

Growth and Balance indicator

The Growth and Balance indicator is designed to visually display the trader’s trading results directly in the MT4 terminal without the use of third-party websites and programs.

After a long analysis, we have come to the conclusion that online resources for calculating the statistics of trading accounts can not accurately display Equity, which was in the account in the period before its accession to these resources, so the calculation of floating income/drawdown is displayed incorrectly. Growth and Balance indicator analyzes the quotes of your broker, looks at the price history of Close, High and Low all candles on the pairs on which the trading took place, and gives equity data with a minimum error.

This indicator is convenient for analyzing your trading system, finding its shortcomings, as well as strengths. The program allows you to view the results of trading for all closed trades, as well as on a specific tool, the direction of buy or sell closed trades, as well as individual Magic Number. The indicator displays information in the form of a linear graph and a yield histogram on any timeframe, taking into account both the balance and equity of the trading account. Has three modes of charting: on a percentage of income, account balance, or on profit orders.

General account information appears on the left as a disconnected text. It also takes into account the filters of your settings, the total number of trades and profitability.

In account balance display mode, the indicator also displays top-up/withdrawals, as seen above in the screenshot of our PAMM account.

The histogram display mode takes into account changes to the current bar account.
The yield graph shows only your fixed profit without taking into account equity and balance sheet.

Above, you’ll see the combined schedule and histogram mode.

Note:

  • Before using the indicator, connect your trading account in the terminal (also applies to the testing mode).

  • When testing in visualization mode, the date should not be specified until the actual start time of trading on the account.

  • In the Account History window, you need to display the whole story (right-hand mouse – “The whole story”).

  • In the settings, you need to allow DLL imports.
  • Because MT4 does not have the ability to programmatically load the missing quote history, you need to manually scroll through the charts for all the Symbols that were used in the trade, otherwise the Equity line will appear incorrectly. If there is a lack of history, the indicator will write a message in the journal “History bars didn’t load completely” and indicate the necessary initial date of the story.
