Capitol Adds, Draws Editor.

This editor allows new capital amounts values added, existing amounts changed or removed.  Capital transactions are accumulated in their own file and can be reported and associated with the Global Suite Parameter Fees Control.

 

Capital Adds & Draws:

This Trading Blox feature provides an screen editing option to add or draw/remove capital from the trading account.  During a test, script commands can add or remove amounts.

 

Values for an add, or a draw amount 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 script execution equity adjustment timing (After Trade Day is an area that is updated for every test price bar in the file).  

 

How each value affects the trading account is determined by the +/- sign that precedes the amount value.

 

Global Suite Parameter's Fees Parameters can be enabled so the parameter option Use Capital Adds Draws will include the transactions in the Capital Adds Draws transaction record file.
