Add the ability to easily view trades on a chart from the "List of trades" portfolio performance report

When you perform a Portfolio Backtest you often need to analyze the results of the trades that were executed by viewing them on a chart. In fact this is a must to develop an effective strategy.

It'd be great if the "List of trades" displayed in the "Portfolio performance report" were clickable, and when you clicked on a trade it opened a chart with the signals/studies applied and took you to that specific trade that was executed.

This would help greatly when optimizing strategies.

Excellent idea Sean! The current workaround (apply the strategy to one chart and then point at a specific trade) is quite cumbersome and not efficient.

I would really like this functionality, as well. It's frustrating to see a strategy perform either well or poorly, but then have to jump through a number of hoops to see why on a chart.
I believe that similar functionality is built in to the RightEdge trading platform, and possibly others. You could look at how they implement it for ideas.

This is essentiel for Portfolio development/backtesting.  At the moment we cann not talk about portofio developing/trading/backtesting without this significant feature.
Please inset it in the next release.
Thnaks a lot.
