sluggo is very detail oriented, as you can see ;)

I changed the logo and fonts in a recent release as well -- so that could explain the difference.

I've tested lots of roll over strategies. You setup CSI UA to rollover early, or with OI/Volume, or late, etc. and then test your developed systems with these various back adjusted data sets to see how the choice of rollover affects the system results. It's critical that you choose a roll over strat...

By default the system is only checking available equity as the orders are placed and it does not know hoe many of the orders or which ones will be filled. There is an optional block that checks the equity again as the orders are filled and rejects all new entry orders once the available cash is used...

Yes TB can handle multiple intraday timeframes. Each system can only be long or short a market, but multiple systems can be tested at the same time so a market can be long and short at the same time.

Set the test end date, generate orders, then set the test end date ahead and generate orders. If everything looks ok then it was a data change issue. One of the things I do is use Generate Forward in CSI UA to help stabilize the data. But if CSI made data corrections or otherwise, then things can ch...

The trade will be rejected if the open is already through the protective stop price. So it will depend on where the open is.

If the open is not already through the protective stop price, but the open is through the stop entry, then Trading Blox will enter on the open.

You could use intraday data alone and have Trading Blox create the daily, weekly, and monthly bars which you could then use to create indicators and signals. Or you could load two separate data files as two separate instruments appending the daily with a -D. Then use LoadSymbol to load up the daily ...

Some customers trade using the intraday data, but base the signals on daily data. Likewise you could trade daily based on weekly data.

Check the Filtered Trade Log to see why there are no trades, if you suspect that there are signals.

I have a block that reads the Tradestation trade log and imports into Trading Blox for signal and trade generation.

It is a starting point, and would require further work, but email me if you are interested.

And I'm still unsure what's meant if they claim TB is capable of intraday-testing. Trading Blox will test intraday data as small as one minute bars. So the data format would be a text file in a DTOHLCV format and the testing process would be much the same as with EOD data. The date and time of each...
