Hello everyone, as the title suggests I am a discretionary trader and I use the Multicharts platform. Lately I would like to try to test live a strategy that I had written. With different financial instruments of course. I know that for automatic trading there is no "paper trading" mode of the program, you can only perform the backtest (if I'm not mistaken). I operate with Amp Future with CQG datafeed, how can I continue to operate as I always do and together test the live strategy with a small account? CQG does not seem to allow you to trade manually and with trading system with the same account. I read on the web that it is necessary to open a second account (subaccount). Can anyone help me understand how to operate in this way that I don't know?
Thank you all

You can setup a paper trading account to test automated trading in MultiCharts. See link below. All you need is a live market data. I think you then need to map the symbol to the paper trading account.

So, just like for manual trading, can you run an automatic system with the paper trading mode of multicharts? Very well, I'll try! Thanks for the reply
