Description

Current AT and BT engine in MC has a number of limitations. Multiple feature requests will be implemented with a new AT and BT engine.
Benefits:
1. A more user-friendly way to control how long orders should stay active until cancelled;
2. It will be possible to modify and cancel specific orders without affecting all other orders;
3. Correct behaviour to a specific order fill and its possible consequences;
4. Customers will be allowed to group orders in different OCO according to their logic.
Please see the list of covered feature requests:

As the first user said "It's time". Leaving out the year information of the post, some of these really important issues are years old!
I hope the overhaul of the BT engine will also include the backtesting of unmanaged orders.

Sorry, I did not want to provoke adverse reaction.
I hope the "postponed" is for the better...

It is Sad for forex trader .. sad it is postponed and not as promised. Waiting this for years and have to wait again.
Tradestation far advance and they can do currency strength meter with easy without open so many charts.  https://www.tradestation.com/education/labs/analysis-concepts/forex-pair-performance-strength-score
meaning for strategy many have to use other platform again.
