View Real Trade vs Backtest Trade

Postby tradingest » 14 Oct 2016

Hi,

why I don't see my real trade in the chart?
I can compare real trade with backtest trade on the chart?

Thanks,
tradingest

In the order and position tracker window you should see historical trades whether to a funded or paper account. Make sure you have the right profile selected from the dropdown. On the chart you should see them as well assuming you are connected to a broker profile.

I don't have MC open on my machine right now so I can't say exactly. If you have the order and position tracker window open, select the order tab (I believe it's called order, something like that). You should then see a menu / menus to filter data by such as "all" or a specific profile / signal. It will show everything you have live / simulated traded whether auto or manual. If you are trading futures and you look at the performance report you'll it will be dependent on the instrument loaded on the chart, so if you rolled to another contract, you won't see the prior contract(s) performance.

The new profile name is LMAX - live but I don't believe that the rename of profile can be a problem.

I don't see the trades made

Looks like your date range begins with October 1 and trades are populating with those dates. Aside from that what is missing. I see your Demo and Live account profiles populated. If you change the begin date range to earlier will that populate what you are looking for?

Tricky one here. Can you put a screenshot of the trade tab up as well for the order and position tracker window? That may shed a little light. I'm heading out for a little bit but when I get home I'll see if I can help further.

So you have an existing broker profile and then renamed it? To rule that out, can you change the name back to exactly what you had before? It would have to be exact and see if that populates the field. The trade tab should show trades as well. Beyond that, I'm sorry but not sure if I can help further.

When you rename the profile, the orders will not be shown for the period when it had another name, it is expected.

If I rename the profile name with the old name I can show old my trade or not?

Hello tradingest,

What I mentioned above is, of course, true when you filter the orders by the broker profile name. And I noticed that you did not do that, actually.

So, in your case it might happen due to the following reasons:

1. You do not see them visually. Please enable Row Selector by right clicking on any column name and make sure that you have the information of the tab scrolled up to the first row: http://www.multicharts.com/trading-soft ... ng_columns
It might resolve the issue.

2. The folder with Order and Position Tracker data was somehow modified or corrupted. It might be due to MultiCharts application modification or a 3rd party application affected files on your computer.
You may want to back up that folder, the path can be found in Preferences -> Directories tab: http://www.multicharts.com/trading-soft ... irectories
