General Discussion / Re: Strategy entry and exit prices

You can now configure if you want the trading action to take place on signal day itself. It is in beta but you can give it a try: beta build to backtest by trading on signal day.
I am planning to make it configurable to decide the trading price from open, close, low, high, average, or typical price. Do you think this is what you need?

This feature is in pipeline and will soon be in an update. Thanks for showing interest in the feature that is already in progress. :)
Quote1) After identifying the entry candlestick (buy), I want to place a fixed sell one tick below this candle. (my stop loss)
2) My target is fixed and is defined by the size of the entry candlestick.  In this case, the size of this candlestick multiplied by 2

This is interesting. As of now buy, sell, short, and cover signal definitions are independent of each other. If I understand you correctly you want to use buy price value in defining sell signal, right? This is not possible as of now but I can think of the way how to make it possible. Please confirm if I am getting you right.
QuoteIn this case of this 1 day slippage, don't you think it's better to use the open price of the day after the signal?

I get your point. Let me think what can be done to improve it.

It's actually simple to implement for me. But I wonder if that is realistic because when market is closed you can only do trading next day and so the signal that used the data of end of day closing price can only be acted upon in following trading session.
Anyways, you have a trading system that you want to test by acting on same day. Let me find time to do it and will give you a beta build to test.
Also while plotting buy/sell signals you can chose not to display all signals. See attached image.
It is expected. When signal occurs it uses the data of that day and so you cannot actually trade the same day. So, 1 day delay in acting on a signal is minimum you can achieve.

Regarding sending screenshot, now you can send it on this forum as you have got an account. But, for this particular case there is no need. :)
Troubleshooting & Bug Reports / Re: Alert question

Can you give an example?
Or send me your alert.xml file and I will have a look myself.
You can find this file at "%appdata%\Lunetek Software\Stockalyze", see the attached image if you need help.
QuoteI don't want to open multiple long/short position. How can I do that?
Not sure I understood your question. During testing of a Trading System for a security only one position is created at any point of time. Once that position is closed then only new position is opened whenever there is new signal. So, it is already at most one position at any point of time. Did you mean something else? Please let me know.

One point here to note is that as of now backtesting only opens long positions. You can have a Trading System that can generate signals for long and short both and you can screen stocks for all sorts of signals but backtesting only tests long positions. That in future can change of course.
I didn't exactly get your question. If you are asking if multiple Trading Systems can be selected in Backtesting or Stock Scanner then the answer is yes. You can select even all Trading Systems while doing Backtesting and scanning for stock ideas.
General Discussion / Re: Choosing winning formulas

No and there can't be any. Different stocks can have different winning Trading Systems and that's why in Stockalyze you can test all the Trading Systems at once with multiple stocks and see which Trading Systems work best. Test all the systems and then chose the winner. Testing all Systems is easy in Stockalyze.

Yes, they are there. You can access them through Chart menu or shortcut keys. See the attached image.
Feature & Enhancement Requests / Re: Missing Tickers

It's is a nice suggestion. If I think aloud; how about hooking it with "Symbol Import"? There can be a check-box on Import Symbols dialog that will say "insert symbol if not found"? So, if you have a list of well defined symbols for which you can provide information like Country and Exchange then those symbols can be added if not already present.

Please let me know if this will be an adequate solution in your view.

Assuming I have understood you correctly, I have created a short demo video to show how you can do it in Stockalyze. Please have a look and excuse my accent :)
