Strategy Report: Run-up < Profit?

Postby StefanoSF » 15 Aug 2013

I'm trying to understand how a strategy's trade Run-Up $ can be less then a strategy's trade Profit $.

Attached is a screen shot and work space attached. This question is not specific to the attached workspace but maybe to the "Profit Target" signal.

The strategy is a simple MA cross with a 10 pips Take Profit exit. Zero commission and zero slippage.

i thought that it means the run up is beyond the profit point.
So if $100 profit was not taken , then the run up would be $190.

So it looks like the profit target is good for that strategy.

I may be wrong, but thats what I thought it meant.

From my experience Run-up should always be equal to or be greater then Profit. Run-up is the highest $ value the strategy reached. Run-up should never be less then profit.

It seems the workspace was corrupted. I rebuilt it and Run-up in now greater then Profit as is should be.

The issue is confirmed and should be fixed in a future version of MC.
