Basic Question Related To Portfolio Keywords

Postby furytrader » 27 Sep 2010

PowerLanguage provides a number of keywords that specifically relate to overall portfolio performance such as "Portfolio_PercentProfit", etc. These are helpful when one seeks to make trading decisions that consider how a portfolio of markets and strategies is trading as a whole, beyond the specific performance of a particular strategy.

Here's my question: while these keywords can be used when backtesting a portfolio of markets and strategies using the Portfolio Backtester, can these same portfolio-specific keywords and rules be used to generate signals in real-time? Or is MultiCharts limited to only looking at one strategy and one market at a time when generating real-time signals?

Hi Furytrader,

Here's my question: while these keywords can be used when backtesting a portfolio of markets and strategies using the Portfolio Backtester, can these same portfolio-specific keywords and rules be used to generate signals in real-time?

Keywords starting with Portfolio_, such as "Portfolio_PercentProfit", can only be used in Portfolio Backtester.

Thank you
