If the chart you are creating extends to those historical days,
MC will look for those data.

You can search the web to see if you can find those back data,
then manually import them into MC.

Sorry tj, i tryed also to put for my strategy quantity less then 1 but it doesn't work... like "buy 0.40 shares on this bar at Close" or like "sell 0.60 shares on this bar at Close" ... i just need the alert messages with the quantity from the strategy but if i put decimal quantity it doesn't work. Do you know how i can fix it? I tryed shares and contracts but with these doesn't work.

Thanks a lot in advance
