Measuring Trade Performance

Recommended Posts

Hi All,


Can anyone offer any advise of software or websites that support IG accounts and provide performance analysis. 

I used to use MyFXbook which i found useful, for looking at stats. Im struggling to find anywhere that supports this for IG.

Hi @Hadley,  MyFXbook and ForexFactory don't support very many broker platforms but they do support MT4  which many brokers also support including IG so that is the way to connect your IG account to MFB or FF.

IG is currently developing its own account analysis platform for its clients but there is no release date on that as yet.

A third option is to download and start your own trading journal spreadsheet, see this thread here;

Hi Caseynotes,

That is really insightful and just the answer i was looking for thank you. I was unaware this could be done via MT4, which is a viable option. I have also found a number of similar 'analysis platforms' that support MT4 now.

I think the analysis platform is a good move for IG, imagine it will be a while before it comes into play.

I think MT4 is the solution so thanks again.

That's right, MT4 has a pretty good analysis tool of it's own;

just click on the terminal icon then at the bottom of the screen click the account history tab and then right click within account history for a dropdown box, select a time frame and click save as report or save as detailed report.

    • Sainsburys full year earnings and Unilever’s first quarter trading update both say the same thing, UK consumers are in for higher prices. The war in Ukraine, supply chain issues and the effects of ongoing Covid all to blame.      
    • US Dollar (DXY) Daily Price and Analysis US Q1 GDP may stall the greenback’s advance. A 20-year high nears for the US dollar. The multi-month US dollar rally continues with the greenback printing a fresh high today ahead of the first look at US Q1 GDP at 12.30 GMT. The US dollar basket (DXY) has been boosted by renewed weakness in the Euro and the Japanese Yen, as investors move from lower-yielding to higher-yielding currencies, while safe-haven flows continue to benefit the greenback. The US growth release later in the session is expected to show a sharp slowdown from the robust Q4 figure of 6.9%. The markets are currently pricing in growth of just 1% for the first three months of this year, with the slowdown mainly due to a reduction in inventory accrual over the quarter. This release is unlikely to move the greenback, unless there is a large miss or beat, as the Fed believe that 2022 US growth will be robust enough to let them tighten monetary policy sharply without damaging the economy. The latest US Core PCE data – the Fed’s preferred inflation reading – is released on Friday and this may have more effect on the US dollar than today’s GDP data. For all market moving economic data and events, see the DailyFX Calendar. The ongoing US dollar rally has been aided by weakness across a range of G7 currencies including the Euro, the Japanese Yen, and the British Pound. The Euro continues to battle with lowly growth expectations, exacerbated by energy concerns, the British Pound is mired by weak economic data, while the Japanese Yen is in freefall as the BoJ continues with its ultra-loose monetary policy.   The US dollar continues to press higher and looks set to break above 103.96, the March 2020 high. Above here the US dollar would be back at levels last seen nearly two decades ago. The March resistance will likely hold in the short-term, especially with month-end portfolio rebalancing at the end of the week, but US dollar strength is set to continue in the months ahead.
