Forex groups/correlations

Can someone please suggest how I can set up forex groups/correlations? The futures dictionary allows for contracts to be put in groups. Correlations within the groups can then be assigned. However, the forex dictionary doesn't seem to have this functionality. Accordingly, I am not able to use the un...

It's re-assuring to know that I'm not the one one finding the current market difficult. The question is, what to do about it. I've been trading a medium to long term trend following system since July 2008. Last year was the worst CAGR for my system for the length of my data going back to 1983 (CAGR ...

CSI data corrections

Has anyone come across the following occurrence? I use CSI’s UA on both my laptop and PC. However, the laptop is automatically handling data corrections from CSI, while the PC needs a manual re-built (if or when I become aware of an error). An interesting situation recently occurred. A few weeks a...

Sluggo, thanks for your response – which makes a lot of sense. After reading your post and thinking over the issue, I believe my initial approach was wrong. Rather than telling TB what I have actually done, I should be aligning my positions with the simulation. In order to “test what you trade a...

Stephen, thanks very much for the reply. It helps knowing I’m not the only one trying to figure out a reasonable way to deal with TB historical data and actual trading. Can I encourage some of the long standing TB users to indicate if the process Stephen uses is similar to their own? I’ve been o...

Hi Tim, I’m a bit confused. I had the impression from one of your previous posts (see quote in my last post) that there is an issue with mixing and matching? On a related matter, in your last post you said: This tool is not designed to track all of your historical trades and associated trade stati...

Hi Dave, Thanks for taking the time to tell me how you’re handling this and for pointing me towards the Equity Add/Remove function. In regards your comment: Only use order generation if fill was late/early, or to compensate for human errors in the course of trading. When I was trialing trade entry...

Recording trades in TB

Hi, When taking a system live, do people enter all their trades into TB manually via Order Generation or simply use the TB simulation as a reasonable approximation of real time? While I imagine you could do it either way, I'd really appreciate any feedback on how others are managing this aspect of t...

Hi SizzyB, I would recommend TB Pro without hesitation. The built in systems include several that are suitable for long-term trend following. Pro gives you a lot of functionality, and allows you to assemble your own system using pre-constructed parts. For example, you may take the ready-made triple ...
