Re: Portfolio Money Management questions

Hello, TraderWalrus! Let me address your questions in order: 1. pmms_strategy_set_entry_contract is called when the strategy has already entered a position. 2.

Re: R-square optimization criteria

Hello, TraderWalrus!

I’m afraid there’s no such pre-built signal or any other study. You will need to create it yourself or search for it on the Internet, as there’s quite a number of free available studies written in EasyLanguage/PowerLanguage.
