 August 10, 2016

By  Advanced Strategies

How you wondered how you can keep track of your trades so that you can analyze your trade performance or strategy? While there are many websites like MyFxBook and FXBlue that can do it for you, we recently discovered another reputable website that can do it quite well in detail for you as well. And we have gone ahead to have our Profit By Friday portfolio verified by ForexFactory.com.

Of course, if you are a retail trader, the Forex Factory Trade Explorer is awesome because you get to see in detail you trade history with all the necessary statistics so that you know how your strategy is doing. For us, as trade signal provider, we look at the Forex Factory Trade Navigator as a 3rd party verification tool to show our potential subscribers that our Profit By Friday strategy works and works really well.

To start keeping track of your trades with Forex Factory Trade Explorer, you will first need to open an account with Forex Factory. Now… ForexFactory is a large site. It has all sorts of good information that might help you in your trading journey. Today, we are going to focus on the Forex Factory Trade Navigator feature only.

You first have to join Forex Factory as a member.

Once you have created your Forex Factory Free membership, click on Trade Explorer and you will be brought to this screen below. You will need to select your Broker. For example, we use XM Broker (by the way you get $30 no deposit bonus by just joining XM Broker) so we just select XM Broker as our broker. You will need your Investor Password to connect. The rest are self explanatory and we will not go into more details on this.
