The Opportunity List is the window of information that shows the results of VisualTrader’s analysis for each symbol in your profile. Each time you make a change to the settings in the Edit Strategy Settings dialog box or when you update data, VisualTrader will perform the necessary analysis for your changes and display the results in the Opportunity List.
VisualTrader also displays the following indicators in the status bar at the bottom of your screen to give you statistics on VisualTrader’s analysis.
- A—Specifies the percentage of all analysis VisualTrader has completed on the collected data.
- S—Specifies the average time in milliseconds that it has taken VisualTrader to generate signals for each symbol.
- P—Specifies the average time in milliseconds that it has taken VisualTrader to complete pattern analysis on each symbol.
- Q—Specifies the number of symbols VisualTrader has yet to analyze.
