PRT feature request - autoversioning of indicators, screeners, strategies, etc.

Hi All,

 

With PRT, if you have more than one account - like your domestic, international, and demo accounts (one for each), it becomes quite messy if you export and import indicators, strategies, and screeners, to keep track of changes to the code between the different environments. For instance, is the strategy with the same name in a different environment the same, or has the code been changed?

 

The best way that I can think of to solve this would be to auto append the date and time to the filename when exporting the screener, indicator, etc. And also to auto insert the date and time information in the description field, or at the top as a comment in the code. This way, it would be very easy to know if the exact same code is running between the different environments.

 

The key here is that PRT needs to create and insert the date and time information automatically in the different places. The user should simply save and export or import.

 

PRT currently offers no versioning information, so this would also assist with the general versioning requirement.

 

This is probably more relevant for IG customers than PRT direct customers, where separate international, domestic, and demo accounts are needed, as IG does not provide PRT's paper trading module, so testing needs to be done using a separate demo account.

Hi 

 

I can see the point you make with regards to the export facility on the ProRealTime platform. Naturally, as you are using more than one environement it can get messy if you have multiple strategies with different versions and so I will be sure to pass on the idea you have about being able to better idetify or lable the strategies.

 

I do hope that helps and as always please do keep those ideas coming as they are gratefully received.

 

Thanks!

    • 06 December 2022 Spot Gold The price of gold did extend its move higher reaching our 1805 resistance target before finding resistance and once again starting to retrace. The moving averages suggest keeping a long bias to trades on the commodity. We are waiting for the current pullback to end with a bullish candle stick pattern before looking to find long entry once again. This is provided that the pullback does not extend past (close below) the 1735 support level. In this scenario, 1805 provides the initial upside resistance target, a break of which would further target the 1875 level.   Brent Crude Oil The price of brent crude oil could not break resistance at 8770 and has instead retraced back to support between levels 8220 and 8080. It appears time now for the commodity price to either break or bounce off the 8080-support level. A close below this level would consider a downside breakout and target a move to 7630. A bullish candle stick reversal (before a downside break occurs) would instead target a move back to 8770, while a close below the reversal low could be used as a stop loss indication in this scenario.         Our weekly technical report is compiled by in-house senior market analyst, Shaun Murison.
    • There was some exceptional volatility last week and the hints of tentative trend developments – most notably a breakdown of the Dollar and attempted rally for US indices. Yet, those moves have abated to start the new week with data and technical levels playing a bigger role in market conviction.
