In the Trades sheet of the Trade Actvity Log - Is there or could there be a Trade duration (from entry to exit) of each trade. I see that Entry DateTime and Exit DateTime are there but is there a way to get the duration calculated out of that in the software?

@Sierra Chart Engineers

I second the original request by @jaxscott1. I would also like to have a duration column on the Trade Activity Log to see the entry to exit duration on each individual trade. If this can be calculated live on the Trade Activity Log and/or incorporated into the "Trading: Profit/Loss Text Study" so that the trade duration can appear directly on the live chart, similar to the profit/loss statistics.

I want to be able to quickly know how long a position has been active without having to do any manual calculations. Hopefully, this request can easily be implemented.

I've searched the support board and haven't seen anything else that would accomplish this. Please point me in the right direction if there is an alternative.

Please and Thank you

We will see about adding this short-term as long as there are no technical complications.

@Sierra Chart Engineering,

Thank you for the update. I realize that I was not specific about the format the duration would be displayed in my original request. I had imagined that the trade duration would be displayed in hh:mm:ss format on the Trade Activity Log and the "Trading:Pofit/Loss Text" Study.

For example
Instead of appearing as "4.4 minutes", the duration would be displayed in the more specific hh:mm:ss format as 00:04:24.
Another example found during my review was that the duration was listed as "109.0 seconds", instead of 00:01:49.

If this request can be accommodated, please udpate at your earliest convenience.

Thank you for your assistance.
