Best Practice For Using Pair Trading Lab without PTL Trader
« on: March 29, 2019, 11:37:56 am »
Hello,

I would like to know if there is a best practice for using Pair Trading Lab without PTL Trader on a daily basis (not  intraday, just end of day).

I am getting a little bit confused when I go to the portfolio manager and backtest my pairs since I don't know if there is currently an open trading position or a flat position due to the last close entry in the trade log. I would like to know when to start trading my backtested pair. But I saw a difference in the slot usage chart while I was comparing it with prior positions in the trade log.

Then it seems that there is a timelag of 1 day when I backtest my pair. What time of day the data base is updated?

Many thanks and best regards,
