[Austin] Yup, in-app notifications are absolutely lacking in our site :P
[Austin] Agreed that the trade log is pretty noisy; could condense to a comments-only view, and have a volume chart. (Or maybe hide it altogether? I'm noticing that more "consumer" fintech sites like Robinhood/Coinbase don't include it at all)
[James] The most useful info from the trade log is the most recent activity for the market. You want to know
The normal graph is somewhat a substitute, but not really. The volume chart fills this need, I think, but might be hard to decipher for regular folks.
Maybe we could have one line with the 24 hour volume: e.g. “$50 YES and $10 NO bets in last 24 hours”. If that volume is 0, then instead show 24 hours from the most recent bet: “$20 YES and $5 NO bets 7 days ago”
[Akhil] Yes, a few different options to retire the full trade log. Could do with or without the volume chart, or even integrate it into the main chart (see screenshot).
Though to take a step back, generally what I’d like to know is:
There are a few different design elements that can communicate most or all of this without adding to the noise or using too much text.
Seeing my positions, an important piece of info, is currently a hidden menu option
Can be subsumed into my Profile and called Portfolio
The fact that it's not public can be communicated via text/lock icon
More information dense with Qty, Cost Basis, Current Value, Daily Change, Gain like in the screenshot
Many of the dropdown filters can be pills/tabs and sortable columns
[Austin] I've wanted to do this for a while now haha; both "merging Your Trades as a tab in your profile" and "replacing Your Trades with a table/spreadsheet". Thanks for including the screenshot - curious, what site is that?
