What does it mean when it says that there are no clear positive or negative habits yet under Psychology Edges?

This means that you have not yet completed enough trades for Performance Analytics to generate data for the Psychology Edge.

Was this answer helpful?
Why does the P&L figure I see in Performance Analytics not match the P&L in my account trade history?

Performance Analytics assesses the past 12 months' worth of trade data, up to 10,000 transactions from your account. If you have carried out more than 10,000 trades in the past 12 months, then your lifetime P&L figures may not show an exact match.

Furthermore, Performance Analytics assesses your trade history solely based on opening and closing transactions. Charges such as financing, commissions, rebate payments and dividend adjustments are not considered.
