Position Tracker without Broker Connection

Dear Sirs,

I do not autotrade with MC but have strategies running on it in realtime.

How can I see the orders and executions (which are generated in the charts) of these strategies in Position Tracker when I am not connected to a broker?

Thanks a lot.

Signal-Properties in Portfolio Backtester?

Hello,

in Multicharts it is possible to change some setting in the properties section for pyramiding (handling of multiple signals per direction within one position) or intra-bar resolution.

Where can I set this up in Portfolio Backtester?

Thanks a lot.

Re: Multicharts 6.01 official release feedback

Hello, great that intrabar resolution is added for backtesting but it seems to require tick-data. In TS there is also an option to use Minute Date for this. It would be great to have this option in multichart. Now as you have it for ticks it should be easy to add it for minutes? F.e. ES has ~200000 ...

Walk Forward Performance Reports

I played a little with the Walk Forward Optimizer of MC and was wondering about the way MC handles Walk Forward. It seems to just show the results for the single In-Sample and Out-of-Sample Periods but does not combine them to one whole backtest. Other vendors (NT or AB) have the ability to choose (...
