A) As of now only long position can be backtested but it will change soon. You will soon be able to test short positions too. Also, buy/sell price can be chosen from the open/high/low/close/typical/average/median price. I am working on to allow other values to.

B) You can specify all your criteria in backtest dialog except "1st CANDLE IN PROFIT AFTER X CANDLES OF ENTRY". Please let me know if you have any difficulty finding them.

C) This is not possible as of now. But I am doing enhancements and will have this feature too.
