The log also contains entries for each trade that was Filtered, for whatever reason.  This is extremely useful if you find yourself asking, "Why didn't my system trade on this day when I expected it to?"  There is a preference to have filtered trades included in this output or not. Be sure to turn this on if you want to see the filtered trades.


Lines for trades not taken could look like the following:

For system 8, symbol ADBE on 1995-03-31, trade attempted but Money Manager set a unitSize of zero

For BIIB on 1995-03-31, the volume of 3666 is less than required 10000

For FLEX on 1995-11-20, cannot add   99300.00 additional margin to  978255.01 existing with only  998343.31 equity.


There are many reasons why a trade may not be taken, and you will see the reason in this file.
