I am sorry but forex is not directly supported in Stockalyze as of now.
QuoteHow do I remove any line study in Stockalyze ?

When you hover mouse cursor on any annotation, e.g. line study, you will notice that cursor turns black arrow. Then click on it and then hit Delete button on your keyboard.

QuoteAlso if I select parallel lines, how do I stop it after the first set of lines?

You can hit Esc button on keyboard to stop drawing any more parallel lines.
I can certainly help you with that.

Regarding data, Stockalyze downloads from Yahoo and other data providers. If those data providers have wrong data Stockalyze can't do anything about that. For this reason Stockalyze also has features to use ASCII data and MetaStock format data. So, if you have a mechanism to get data from any other source then you can make use of that in Stockalyze. Let me know if you need help in that.

Regarding problem with backtesting, please let me know what exact problem you are facing, which system you used and how it behaved differently than expected.

It can happen if scanner doesn't find any result. Are you sure scanner must have found some results based on the Trading System you used?

Normally when signal occurs the trade can only happen on next candle (or day for Eod chart). But if you think you can manage to trade on the same candle on which signal occurs then you can check this. Otherwise backtesting will trade on next candle.

Please let me know if you still need clarification.

As of now there is no way to close the position automatically at the end of the day. But it would be easy to do in Stockalyze if is wanted to close the existing position at the end of the day with the closing price.

Please let me know if this will solve your problem.

I don't think Yahoo or Alphavantage supports stocks from Tokyo Stock Exchange.
But if you can supply data in ASCII or MetaStock format then Stockalyze can be used with them.

Please let me know if this doesn't answer your question.

Sorry, Windows XP is no longer supporter. It is too old an OS and very few people use it. So, we cannot spend effort in making Stockalyze run on Windows XP. I hope you understand.

Built-in data provider Alphavantage can be used. Also, Stockalyze supports ASCII (i.e. text files) and Metastock formats too. So, if you have data on your system in ASCII or metastock formats then they too can be used.

Please let me know if you need any help.
General Discussion / Re: GOOGLE FINANCE

Stockalyze used to have Google Finance as one of the data provider but google finance had stopped data download long back. You cannot even download data from google finance manually. So, Stockalyze too cannot have it.
It's a nice suggestion. We can think about it. But to be honest, as of now lots of improvements are in pipeline.

We may think of adding it in future.
Can you try using that alphavantage key on their website and test it to see if it works there? If it works on their website then it should work for Stockalyze too. In case it doesn't then please let me know.

Trading systems only know about conditions based on indicators. They are aloof about kind of trading.
Can you please elaborate what you are looking for?

First of all sorry for late response.

To program Stop Gain you can use "Stop at target" field of Backtest Trading Systems dialog. For moving stop loss you can either use "Stop drawdown" or set the sell signal using appropriate indicator.

Is there anything you need help for then please let me know.

Even after setting up key you get orange button?

Chart time is always converted to local so you don't have to do anything.
