PRT Enhancement request - consistency between equity curves

Question

Hi,

 

The equity curves for backtests and auto-trading systems are displayed differently. With backtests, it is is easy to see when you have lost more than what you have gained (a move below your initial capital amount), because there is a horisontal line that indicates this. Below this line, the fill colour is also different. With auto-trading systems it's not that easy to see this.

 

The top chart is the backtest. The bottom chart is of an auto-trading system:

 



 

My suggestion is to make them the same, or at least add a 0 value horisontal line on the auto-trading chart.

 

Like this:

 



 

Regards

Stef

Hi,

 

Thanks for sharing that very useful insight. I can see how making a more uniform approach to displaying the equity curves would be of a lot of use as it would allow for quicker analysis of results.

 

I have passed this point on to the ProRealTime team to look into and hopefully they will be able to make those changes you have mentioned.

 

As always thanks for your feedback and also please do keep them coming!

Hi ,

 

Just to let you know that I have been contacted by ProRealTime. They would like to extend a special thank you to you for the contributions you have given, for which they have discussed in depth and some have been added to the to do list of their Java developers.

 

Keep up the good work!

    • Hi All, Please let me know does anyone trade US penny stock. When I started trading US stock for all the transaction there use to be currency conversion charge and this was costing a lot. Since my account base currency was GBP for every trade  in USD I use to pay currency conversion rate which was costing a lot for me . Then I decided to convert all my GBM capital into USD (Stopped instant conversion). However now I can see all my trade per share IG is charging 13 pence from my account . It's almost equal to looting my account    Example :  Share : Bionano Genomics Inc   Number of share : 5000   share cost :0.48507   total amount : 2425.35 UDS       commission : 100 UDS    FOR A 2425.35 USD  transactions BUY COMMISSION  100  usd  Sell   Commission  : 100 USD .    Are all getting changed like this for your US transaction ???   I don't think I can continue trading like this .. this charges are killing my capital . Thanks Arun
