Welcome, Guest!

This forum was established to help traders (especially futures traders) by openly sharing indicators, strategies, methods, trading journals and discussing the psychology of trading.

We are fundamentally different than most other trading forums:
  • We work extremely hard to keep things positive on our forums.
  • We do not tolerate rude behavior, trolling, or vendor advertising in posts.
  • We firmly believe in openness and encourage sharing. The holy grail is within you, it is not something tangible you can download.
  • We expect our members to participate and become a part of the community. Help yourself by helping others.

You'll need to register in order to view the content of the threads and start contributing to our community. It's free and simple, and we will never resell your private information.

Simulated Autotrading

Hello (formerly BMT) forum,

I am having a problem trying to use my automated trading systems in global simulation mode. I am able to back test these in the Strategy Analyzer and they get results, but when I forward test they never get into any trades. They are enabled and green in the strategies section.

I have heard that when simulating historical data makes the forward testing fussy.

Thank you,

Make sure you've got data loaded for the period you want to back test. remember in NT you need to download this before hand.

And by forward test you mean the optimization period? Again you need to load the data for that period.
