Portfolio Trader -- Bar Magnifier, IOG, Extended Backtesting

Postby dario » 15 Dec 2015

Hi to all,
I don't understand how to set Bar Magnifier, IOG and Extended Backtesting mode (ask/bid) in portfolio trader like I do in simple backtesting

Portfolio Trader does not support IOG and BarMagnifier for trading signals.
IOG is supported and is always On for the money management signal only.
really? But without Bar Magnifier and Extended Backtesting the results in Portfolio Trader are totally different from normal backtesting (and from reality)...this makes Portfolio Trader not usable.

Will These Features be implemented in the near future??

Hello dario,

Portfolio trader does not support IOG and BarMagnifier for signals. IOG is supported for the money management signal only.
We understand the importance and demand of this functionality and we are considering adding it in the future. We cannot provide any ETA for it, as this is not a trivial functionality. It requires development of the new complex algorithms for synchronous multi data stream processing in backtesting and realtime on a portfolio level.

Hello,

Is the addition of Extended Backtesting still under consideration for Portfolio Trader?

Thanks

Yes, this functionality is not yet targeted to any specific version of MultiCharts.

Hi,

Just though I'd check in and ask if bar magnifier is on the roadmap yet for future MC versions?

Thanks.

Hello wilkinsw,

It is not planned for the nearest future and will not be included into the upcoming MultiCharts 11 Release. Once the management decides to include it into our roadmap, we will change the status of the corresponding PM issue.

Well, The previous message was posted some years ago (2015). Portfolio Trader doesn't have this important functionality yet (April 2018). This is really a problem and it seems to be that MC will not give a solution to it.
