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


Recommended Posts

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.

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.

    • Hi @skyreach For real estate developers in China, but most likely just about anywhere else in the world, debt is a double-edged sword. Debt can be a valuable asset for rapid growth if not used excessively, while over leveraged debt can pose an irreversible threat to long-term financial health. It is a fine line to walk to find the balance between fast growth and financial sustainability.   Will the crisis crush the economy? The crisis of uncontrolled debt in a sector that contributes to more than 25% of the Chinese GDP made us wonder if it could actually crush the economy. It’s undeniable that China’s economic growth for the past decades is finally slowing down, but for the Chinese real estate sector, this might well be just another road bump. However, I believe that a real crash is unlikely, as the newly launched regulations are set to deleverage and reduce debt as well as limit both excessive price rises and prices dropping too low.   For the full article: Forbes
    • The highly troubled real estate giant with over $300 billion in liabilities is at risk of becoming China's biggest ever default. There are a few other big Chinese developers in the same boat. IT IS A QUESTION OF WHEN? IN A FEW WEEKS OR SEVERAL SEVERAL WEEKS? China is in a huge debt bubble, as the West, encouraged by FED POLICIES, particularly other central banks have been encouraged and pushed to follow the model as if that would "solve" the world's economic problems. We have been here before many times over the many decades. It seems no lessons of the past were permanently put in place to place or the true WHYs not established and adhered to. Should it go wrong then those in charge are responsible and should have to pay for the financial mess to follow, including the banks themselves.
