    Hi everyone!

    When you decide to give a chance to the new trading strategy - what's next? What software do you use? Are you satisfied with your current testing environment? Is it important for you to do the testing online/offline? What is the proportion of using your own strategies vs. existing ones?

  3. Can your software let me simulate the P&L of what would happen if I add say, 10% more hold time to winning trades?

    At the moment no, but thanks for the hint, we'll add it to the list of improvements in the new release.
     
  5. Great. I think that would be a game changer for many traders.
