The P&L Tracker expands on Trade Control allowing traders to see in real time trades going through the market as well as the value of those trades.
The Trade View allows the trader to quantify the profit of what went through the market for that day and how much he/she made during the day at the time of the trade. The user can filter trades being executed in the market and analyze the data to help evaluate his/her unrealized and realized P&L against theoretical values for current positions.
The Product View gives the user a condensed per-product view of how he/she is performing against the market. For each product, users can see their profit vs market profit, MOM (Money Over Market) and their YTD P&L vs market YTD P&L. This allows the trader to quantify how well they have performed one day to the next based on market conditions.
Note that this widget isn’t designed to replace Metro NOW Trade Control, but instead supplement it by providing value-added P&L analytics tools.
