How do I specify equity per trade in Portfolio Backtester

Postby SeanBannister » 04 Jan 2011

I've been using the Portfolio Backtester but can't figure out how to specify how much equity to to risk per trade. When I set "Max % of Capital at Risk per Position" the results are always the same. It only seems to purchase one share per position.

I'm only new to MultiCharts so I apologise if this is something simple.

Dear SeanBannister,

You should right click on the strategy name and go to Show Properties. There you can specify the trade size.
