New article How to visualize multicurrency trading history based on HTML and CSV reports has been published:

Since its introduction, MetaTrader 5 provides multicurrency testing options. This possibility is often used by traders. However the function is not universal. The article presents several programs for drawing graphical objects on charts based on HTML and CSV trading history reports. Multicurrency trading can be analyzed in parallel, in several sub-windows, as well as in one window using the dynamic switching command.

To test the script, I downloaded CSV files with signal histories. Here is what it might look like (the main chart is minimized):

The generated objects are provided with descriptions which contain details from the report (deal numbers, volumes, profit and comments). To show the details, enable "Show object descriptions" in chart settings.

If the number of working symbols is large, subwindow sizes are decreased. Although this provides an overall picture, studying of details might be difficult. When you need to analyze each deal, use as much space as possible, including the main window. For this purpose, let us create a new version of the SubChartReporter indicator, which will display deals on the main chart instead of using the subwindow.
