The Day Overview is your trading diary. It shows overall P&L, your daily notes, the economic releases for the day, performance chart, risk chart and a list of trades in closed order with running PnL. Note that individual trades are in exchange currency and running PnL is in local currency.
You can scroll backwards and forwards through days, you can select a specific date from a calendar and you can select accounts (and other options for trader group managers).
Here's how you can choose & filter the data you are looking at on the day overview.
The statistics section shows todays statistics compared to historical averages (8 weeks of history is considered). All charts are updated in real time as you open/close trades and as open P&L changes. All amounts include commissions. Averages are considered from days you closed positions, so non-traded days are not considered when calculating averages.
Floating the mouse over any chart will show you the actual numbers the chart was based on.
Top left - P&L section - shows today's total, open and closed P&L. We also show total P&L This week (closed only). We also show the Average Day and Average weeks P&L.
