Open Bug report MC-2510

PortfolioTrader - Forward Performance Testing - does NOT go forward. If you start it today (09/24/2018), it will stay on this date forever without running on live new data.

Not much else to say ... it's a simple feature that doesn't work regardless of data (TS in my case), broker (PaperTrader in my case) or symbol (@ES). I'm using daily bars.

Steps to reproduce this issue

Turn a Portfolio Trader strategy on Forward Testing, with live data enabled.
Come back 2 weeks later. You'll see exactly the same open positions you left it with. Strategy did NOT progress forward at all.

workaround is to stop it, set To: today, run a gain.
But that's not forward testing, isn't it?

andb, we were unable to replicate this behavior on our end. Please make sure your data feed is streaming realtime data and add outputs to your code to see the calculations. Let us know in case you spot the exact steps leading to the issue.
