Entry/Exit price for backtesting

Postby ivanyu » 18 Aug 2013


I noticed that when a strategy is running real time, entry/exit price will be automatically plotted on the chart. However, for historical prices during backtesting, only a tick is drawn on the chart at the entry/exit price, with no price printed.

If I want entry/exit price on historical prices, is my only option text_new?

Is there a reason on this being different between historical and real time?

Thanks for any advice!!

Hello ivanyu,

This behavior is by design. If you want it to be changed - you can submit a feature request to the Project Management of our web site so other users can vote for it: https://www.multicharts.com/pm/
In order to plot a text on the chart you need to use the Text drawing, there is no alternative for text plot.
