Distribution of individual trades profit/loss

Distribution of individual trades profit/loss

The charts shows distribution (histogram) of profit/loss of all selected pairs (objects) trades. Histogram of profit/loss of individual trades provides a good idea about expected course of trading: most common range of profit/loss of one trade, possible depth of a draw-down and, in general, the portfolio quality itself.

Chart assessment

Chart will enable you to find out a distribution of profit/loss of individual trades. If the most of trades keep their positions in the middle of the chart and histogram course is approximately copying Gaussian curve, the results can be considered as trustworthy and can be further used.

If the results are considerably shifted towards one side of the chart and/or there are lots of trades close to the chart edges, it is necessary to identify cause of this unusual phenomenon. The highest probability is that this is a data inconsistency (uneven splits, gaps in the data or damaged data).
