Back Test Only Loop

Is it possible to code a portion of a strategy that only runs when back testing? I know a strange concept but can it be done.

I'm just making this up to demonstrate!

If Backtest then Begin

//logic code only when Back Testing;

End;

I use NT8 now to trade manually and am at a basic level with C# so prefer Easy/power language. Hoping someone might have a lead on this or maybe point me to a thread somewhere that address the issue.

Thanks for the help.

Sorry OP.....I did not see the category when i replied. I don't know easylanguage so I don't know if it has that capability. Was not trying to push NT either....I just know that it has the capability.

GuppyDRV,

as far as I am aware you can only use
 
Code
GetAppInfo( aiOptimizing )
to detect an optimization, but not a backtest.

This leaves you the option of an input that you enable manually or you define what you mean when you say
backtest. For example when you say everything that occurred not on live data is considered a backtest you could check for live data and only execute your code block when the data is not live:
 
Code
GetAppInfo( aiRealTimeCalc )
Regards,

ABCTG

@ABTCG

O.K. I think I see where you're going with this. Kind of a back door approach. I'll play around with this the next few days. Thanks again for the point.
