Hello daykoku,

1) That is possible to backtest multiple isntruments at the same time: Understanding Portfolio Backtesting
That is also possible to reference multiple data series to generate orders on one data series. Here's how to.

2) There are multiple supported datafeeds that provide Forex data: MCFX (FXCM data from our servers), Dukascopy, eSignal, IQFeed, Interactive Brokers, IWBank, LMAX, MB Trading, OEC, TS.
Please refer to the Supported Datafeeds web page for more information.

Thanks, but this was not exactly the information he sought. Sorry for my English.

We need to transform our Eas to the language supported by the platform, I have understood that you can program. NET and C #, is this correct?

We also need to use their historical test module to use multi-instrument and assess whether the conversion can be useful for us to transfer our accounts in the future.

Another question is about the historical data, you can use your historical test module for CSV files or need to use their servers?

I await your response.

Best regards. d

Currently we have two versions of MultiCharts with different programming languages:
MultiCharts that supports EasyLanguage/PowerLanguage.
MultiCharts .Net with C#/Visual Basic .Net.

What exact test module you are referring to?

You can use your CSV data for backtesting. You can also get the data from one of the supported data feeds.

That is possible to do Pair Trading backtesting in Portfolio Backtester.
Your trading strategy can reference up to four other instruments in order to make a trading decision on any one tradable symbol. Please refer to the attached picture as a sample.

Pair Trading in Backtesting using Global Variables is described at this page.

You can find C# examples of code in our MultiCharts .NET forum for example here and here. You can also install a trial version of MultiCharts .NET on your PC and access the source code of the prebuilt studies.
