Trading Statistics Save

If you find a query particularly useful, it can be saved for use later on. When a query is saved, this window is displayed requesting further information about the query. First of all you must enter a unique Code to identify the query. The query should also be given a Description so that it can be easily recognised.

The window then asks for the Statistics Period and the Comparison Period. This will be used when the query is opened later on. The system basically needs to know what you meant by the periods the original query was run for. When the query is reopened, the system can work out the periods should be. For example, you might run a query for periods 1998.12 to 1998.14 which happens to be month to date. If you open the query in four weeks time, you don't want the query to run exactly for periods 1998.12 to 1998.14. You really want to run it for month to date and so the system should automatically convert this to 1998.18 to 1998.21. You only need to specify the Comparison Period if your query did include a comparison.

The Print Report option is used when running the Trading Statistics in batch mode. If it is checked on the report for the query will be automatically generated and then the Trading Statistics program will immediately close itself. This is useful when you want to schedule a number of queries to run automatically as part of end of day processing. If it is checked off, the query will still run but the system will want for you to view the results and manually close the program. This is useful when you want to set up a menu with a number of Trading Statistics queries. When a menu option is selected, the Trading Statistics query is opened and the results displayed to the user.

If the Print Graph option is checked on, the query's graph will be printed on the report.

When a query is saved, the system records everything about the query, including:
