Our newer commission settings are nice. However, I think it would make sense to implement a market order slippage/cost exclusive to back-tested market orders. I've used this feature in another platform and it was pretty handy.

I guess I didn't do that correctly :)

This would allow you to back-test a limit order strategy with a market order stop and in your back-tests you wouldn't have to manually calculate the 1 tick cost of all market orders that were simulated.

You can set commission and slippage in Strategy Properties -> Properties tab. It is applied to backtesting and to stop and market orders (except stop-limit, limit orders are not supported).
