Making Unmanaged Orders Available for Backtesting (MC.Net)

Go to the next issue (open or closed)
Go to the next open issue

For MC .Net, currently, we have to develop two sets of order codes if we want to use unmanaged orders in realtime. The first set is for backtesting (since unmanaged orders are not supported during backtesting) and another for realtime. Make unmanaged orders available for backtesting would greatly reduce our development time (managing both codes and coding it).

Steps to reproduce this issue

Its part of current limitation

Please support backtesting using TradeManager. That would make a great feature combined with the new simulated Paper Trader profile.

Right now it is a giant step between development and live trading when using unmanaged orders - exactly what we don't want. Please consider adding this feature.

This would be needed NOT ONLY for .NET version! The regular Powerlanguage MC begs for it!

Hi, can we please raise the priority of this item? The original description is absolutely correct. Without this feature the development work is more than double, as if we're programming a strategy for two different platforms. We need to have a single API that supports backtesting, playback trading, allow trading any instruments without having to chart them (headless), etc.

I know it's a big request but it is very much needed. Maybe MultiCharts can come up with an abstraction API for trading that combines features of regular signals and TradeManager. Thanks!

It's very usefull to learn R/R of each single trade.
