However, if there is another open trade with 15,000 margin, then to the best of my knowledge the Portfolio_InvestedCapital would be 25,000. When I wrote my initial rep...

Re: What's the value of Portfolio_InvestedCapital? [SOLVED]

Trading is essentially risk management; therefore, one's answer should be dependent on the what one wants to achieve. For instance, I would use the actual amount of margin money (in your account) for calculating the risk percent per trade. However, the P/L is based on the full value of the underlyi...

Re: set exit order be cancelled issue

I use average line to set my entry and exit point. I thought IOG can make the line consistent smooth. Actually, I don't really know about IOG. Is that will be a problem to the setpercenttrailling? but the strategy is applied to all my charts.

The set-exit order can't b...
