PRT Variable section bug/feature request



Hi guys,


Why does the variable section not respect sizing when re-executing a backtest, or reloading your template?


If you have a chart with a ProBackTest on, and then save your template, the variable section does not respect the sizing that was set when you reopen/reload your template (or even if you just re-execute the backtest). It sometimes even moves the sections around - see below.


Also, why can you not set the style for variables - the line style is very limiting. It makes sense to be able to set styles such as histogram, etc.





When reopened:

Thanks for taking the time to point out the differences when you save a template and use the backtest facility on the ProRealTime platform. 


I can see from the screenshots below that the price axis is different when comparing the 2 versions of the same item and so what I will do is contact the team at ProRealTime regarding this, as like ourselves, they really appreciate feedback.


I do hope that helps and as always if there is anything you can think of that would add value to your strategy then do let us know and we would love to hear from you.

Hi Stef,


I have heard back from ProRealTime regarding the window associated to the backtest and they have said that the reason of the limitations is because the backtest is treated as a temporary window and these windows are unable to be saved as a fixed graph and so that is where these differences will arise from.


With that said the point you have made has been gratefully received as valuable feedback and so I hope to see in the future an improvement of the backtesting windows. 


I do hope that helps and thanks again for bringing this up!

    • They caused me a loss of £10k as I was long and planning to keep my trades. Anyway, looks like the SEC is going to go after them and to be honest I'm glad because I found it extreme on us small investors to lose all our money because they delisted xrp. https://coil.com/p/XRP_Productions/SEC-Sues-Crypto-Exchanges-for-Delisting-XRP-and-Hurting-Innocent-Investors/VfGRw237d        
    • As you rightly say, based on their decision making affect on existing customer positions, faith in IG being a decent ethical organisation is shattered - I would never have thought a company who had such a good reputation and project such s customer inclusive approach could **** its loyal customers on this manner; please email their Compliance department if not already done in case of future litigation
