Live trading trying to replicate backtest
« on: February 27, 2015, 05:08:49 am »
Hi, in my PTL Trader I set it up using intraday entry and exits from 9:50 to 15:40. I got and entry and exit not registered in the online backtest. What would be the best way to setup PTL Trader to best mimic the online backtester? thanks.

Online backtester only trades at the end of the day. So you can restrict your strategies in PTL to trade only in (for instance) last ~30 min of trading session.

For example: 15:30 till 15:55

You can set it in Portfolio Manager. If you already trade your portfolio, you have to do it in PTL Trader itself.
