Your own trading back office

We are pleased to announce new features to improve your trading performance and track every aspect of your trading business.

You can now view the average time spent on losing vs winning trades. If you are spending more time holding on to losers, you are not managing risk very well, thus not following your entry and exit rules. Ideally, you want to hold on to winners longer or at least for the same time as your losers. Discover how this metric works by viewing your kpi report. By the way, this is a paid feature.

Ranking your trading strategies

At Trademetria, you can tag your trades according to the strategy used and discover your best and worst strategies. This feature also helps you backtest new strategies and keep track of the results.

This feature is very important because when you trade, you need to know what strategies have higher probability of profits. Pulling the trigger will be easier and you can trade with more confidence. On the other hand, if a trade appears on a strategy that is not likely to generate profits, you must think twice before entering the trade or not enter at all.

How to become a trader


I started trading back in 2001 when my college buddy recommended to buy INFA. I bought 200 shares at $14 and held it for two years selling it for $8. Thanks for the tip buddy! During the next few years, I wasted a lot of time and money trying to learn to trade by myself. All and all, I lost around $5K after “playing” for about 3 years before work. I took some time off and decided to give trading another chance, but this time a real chance. I started trading in a prop firm where I had all the necessary tools to succeed. Under this new environment, I had only 4 down months out of 48 during my trading career. Most importantly, I only lost about $1500 to reach profitability. Pretty big difference from when I tried to learn by myself.

How can your trading mentor help you with Trademetria

When I joined a prop firm that offered training, mentorship, top tools and traders to talk to, I had 44 profitable months in 48. Big difference.
