Global Variables, Indicators & Backtester-beginner question

Postby HummerH1 » 24 Sep 2011

Hello

I have a signal, based on an indicator.
In my signal I use Global Variables that are updated in the indicator.

Will the backtester be able to reach these values? I did not see anyway to attach an indicator into the backtester stategies...
How can I do that?

Thanks for your help.

Hello HummerH1.
Unfortunately you cannot apply an indicator in Portfolio Backteser separately.
You need to include the indicator code in the signal script.
Please keep in mind that Portfolio Backteser does the backtesting only on the historical data, not on the real-time.
