Description

I would like to have the same control that you get for the whole portfolio from portfolio settings in the main portfolio backtest window, for each strategy. For example, lets say i would like to backtest 8 different strategies, and I want them all to have an equal weighting of $100k for a initial portfolio capital of $1M and 80% total exposure. Right now the only way to do that would be to run a backtest with 1 strategy with a maximum exposure of 100k then duplicate the same backtest for the other 7 and combine the results in a spreadsheet. The reason is that I can control the capital at risk per position, but I cant control it per strategy. I have checked with Andrew at tech support and he concurs that the functionality does not exist currently, and if i want I can submit this feature request. Thanks.
