View Full Version : backtest in replaymode?

Is sth. like that possible? The basic Idea is to use ticksdata for testing instead of just minute-bars. Would be more reliable.

You can run a strategy in replay mode which is running tick by tick. Its not a backtest but a real-time running strategy except that its historical data.

That would be fine. How to "backtest" in replay mode?
Connecting to replay mode, then? (how to activate the strategy)

Ok. I can backtest in replay mode.
Another problem: I have a pairtradingsystem I would like to backtest/test in replay mode. This seems to be a problem as I do have to attach one system per chart.
So two questions:
- Is it possible to attach to symbols in one chart?
- Is it possible to access the orders of say System1 on Chart1 within system2 on chart2? Or sth like a metasystem that only trades if there are orders from both systems?

You can not have two instrument on one chart, this is on our enhancement list. You can not display orders of the other instrument on the chart.

But is it possible to check from system1 on chart1 wether there is an order or position in asset2 on chart2 with system2?

Yes its possible.
