i-Orders is a simple index for monitoring your own trading or analyzing someone’s accounts.
i have been using it for so long that I can’t imagine what the graph looks like with no arrows, lines and numbers with trading results.
The preferences allow you to:
- alter the dimensions and location of control buttons (Control buttons size, Control buttons ),
- disable the display of open or closed places (Show OPENED, Show CLOSED, Show PENDING),
- change the colours of arrows and lines separately for profitable and unprofitable buy and market positions (Color for profitable/losing buys/sells),
- change the style and thickness of the lines connecting the opening and closing points of the trade (Open-Close lines width, Open-Close lines style), add text labels on these points (Open price labels width, Close price labels width),
- enable the display of profit in the deposit currency, points or percentages (Show profit in money/points/percent), adjust the accuracy of the profit display (Number of digits to show),
- to change the font and size of text (Font, Font size),
- mark the SL and TP levels with dashes (Show SL and TP dashes), connect them with a line of custom thickness and style with the opening price (SL and TP vertical lines width, SL and TP vertical lines style),
- display the expiration time of pending orders (if specified) as a line (Expiration lines width/style) with a text comment (Expiration comment),
- enable displaying breakeven levels of buy and sell positions (breakeven type, Line width / style, breakeven color for buys / sells),
- select the spread display mode in one of four ways (parameters Spread type, Width, Style, Ask color, Bid color, Rectangle color, Text color),
- display trades only with the specified MagicNumber,
- limit the depth of the displayed history to save computer resources (Max history deals),
- watch cent accounts, converting profits into the usual dollars.
It is also possible to download transactions not from the account history, but from a csv file received from the monitoring service.
Save the file to the “Data catalogmql4files” folder and specify its name when you run the i-Orders indicator (the Report file name parameter) — and you will see the trades on the chart in your terminal. To display correctly, you need to specify the correct time offset (Time shift).
The first line of the report file must contain the column names: “Open Date, Close Date, Symbol, Action, Lots, Open Price, Close Price”. You can get examples of files with reports here.
