Entering baseline positions is a very critical part of using TradeLog as outlined in Step 2 of the Getting Started Guide.
To enter a baseline position:
- Select the brokerage account you will be entering baseline positions for by selecting the appropriate Account Tab. All trade editing must be done in the individual account tabs.
From the Account menu, click the Baselines button (or use the keyboard shortcut F7 key).
- TradeLog will convert to Entering Baseline Positions mode, as indicated by the status bar at the bottom of the window.
- A new record will be created on the screen. Enter the details of the baseline position. (See Entering Baseline Positions for more details)
When finished entering the record, press the Enter key twice on your keyboard. TradeLog will prompt "Save Records"? Click Yes.
TradeLog will now prompt if you want to Enter another open position? Click Yes to continue entering baselines, click No to stop and leave the Entering Baseline Positions mode.
To exit the Entering Baseline Positions mode without saving the current record, hit the Esc key at anytime.
