Thanks: 1 times

I would like to check in backtesting what would happens with my trade statistics if I e.g. pyramid into the positions. Currently I do not see any support for managing several positions with MS, or am I wrong?

My current version is MS12 EOD, but for this important test I would upgrade right away if it provides a good solution. The solution I can think of is to upgrade MS and save data to the local hard drive, and then do testing with another software.

Regards,

Jon

The "enhanced" system tester in MS is, at best, a rudimentary tool to test your trading ideas i.e. it will give you a rough indication whether a trading idea is worth pursuing further. It's not possible to make a system tester that would suit every style of trading, but what MS have delivered over the years is far from robust, so I do my basic testing in MS and then do the finessing in much more powerful and flexible environments.
