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...

Portfolio backtesting for the masses is coming soon.
Well, they use a different definition of 'portfolio backtesting' than I would use. I don't think testing each market separately and then stitching the results together afterwards qualifies as portfolio backtesting.

This file looks fine. If you just delete the stockinfo file for now, Trading Blox will load up all text files and create a market with the symbol "erik" in this case. Then later you could add back the stockinfo file if you need a stock description or currency, etc. Also add the stock to a portfolio ...

Is there a way to have stops executed on entry date? When you place your entry, you can indicate the entry day stop as well such as: broker.EnterLongOnOpen( protectiveStopPrice ) And if you want to adjust this stop price on the entry day, based on the fill price as an example, then you could put th...

Trading Blox does not create synthetic data. But if you have different data sources for the same markets, you could run separate tests with each type of data.

Yes, there is a static order in which the blox are executed, and it's based on their order in the System Editor. You can verify the order of things quickly by putting PRINT statements in the code, such as to print the block name and script name in each script, to see which gets executed first and se...

I don't know about this particular graph, but keep in mind that by default, the Trading Blox Global Parameter Max Volume Per Trade is set to 25%, so if this is left in place with a large test like this, you will generally see a plateau effect. It's important when testing for theoretical results with...

One way do to this would be use use the OHLC/4 value in the MACD indicator, or create two exponential moving averages with the OHLC/4 value and subtract them. Another way for more control would be to create a calculated indicator. The first two calculated indicators could be some custom value like H...
