Capital Adds & Draws:

This Trading Blox Builder feature provides a trader  an option to add or draw capital from a trading account.  Values for an add, or a draw can be created by keyboard entry where the user enters a date and an amount.  Values entered are recorded on the test date that matches the the simulation's test date and are applied as one of the latest transaction during the After Trade Day equity adjustments. Global Parameter's Fees Parameters can be enabled so a Fee Parameter option will add draws to the Capital Adds Draws Transaction file.

Fee transactions are accrued on a (daily/monthly/quarterly/yearly) basis, and booked as defined in global parameters .
