Thanks to everyone who contributed to this thread for your posts. I learned a lot just from reading them.

Has anyone pushed the issues with backtesting in NT for their next release? If not, please post your wish (a one liner if possible) that I can then compile into a master list and send it of to our friends at NT, and see if they can put our ideas into release 8.

If someone has done this already, please let me know.

Good Trading everyone.


The best place for this is probably the existing NT8 wishlist thread here:

Trading in opposite direction

Is it possible to program NT to trade the opposite direction intended by my strategy? My strategy loses a lot of money (more than enough to cover two ticks of spread necessary to overcome the bid/ask on entry and exit). In MT4 forex, it is very easy to implement trading in opposite direction of the strategy. How about NT?

There's nothing built into NT7 that does this that I know of. I often build a "BizarroMode" flag (true/false) which allows me to enter long when it signals short and enter short when it signals long during my testing, also, my stops become my targets and my targets become my stops.

Often, if I can find a strat that performs just miserably I'll look to see if it will be more profitable in bizarro-mode.

How do you choose either going long or short an instrument in strategy wizard

How do you choose either going long or short an instrument in strategy wizard
I was wanting to know how to use your user defined inputs to only going long or short a strategy, but don't know how i know the pricebreakout strategy does this and was wanting to do it with my own. If you can help and i compile this succesfully ill post this in the strategy forum download section?

Also one last question, if anyone can answer this for me, under condition set 1 i have all my indications to go long and same as going short in set 2 in the strategy wizard. If one of the paremeters or indicators are not bullish anymore like the MACD or ADX, does that mean it will automatically cancel me out of the trade?

I look forward to your response, im 90% done this strategy, just need to add the going long or short function, and possibly chancing the buying and selling parameters if the set 1 and 2 conditions are not aligning together properly.

Thanks for you time and consideration,

Kind Regards,

Just to show you its possible..

(in real trading my win% is low 90s, but win% is irrelevant really.. only profitability and stability matter (stability means low, consistent drawdown, no outliers))


if i happen to ask you one question,that`d be HOW?How to avoid outliers in automation?
