While developing a trade strategy and because some futures like the NQ are very volatile, it would be nice to be able to see the actual cash drawdown during a trade. ( the +/- cash action that goes against the trade strategy prior to the trade being executed.
Available cash $600
quantity of 5 MNQ - take profit of 5 points.
trade: Sell market at 13024 - take profit triggered 7 sec at 13019
In the above example, how much did the trade go against me ( in the positive direction) before going down and being executed? This would help new users understand where there limits are but would also help with fine tuning a “Trailing stop” or even “Stop Loss”.
