  • Testing systems live

    After the signal for automated trading has been designed and backtested, traders need to test it when running live on the broker. Multicharts offer special broker profile called Paper Trader Broker Profile. It will allow to use virtual broker to check, debug systems running live without touching your existing live account. You could find more information how to set up it here: Paper Trader

    There is one evil thing that's NOWHERE mentioned : You have to switch to Paper Trader on every open chart - window ! Otherwise you can loose your money and even do not notice it ; )

      JOJO has a valid point. Traders please make sure to right click on chart then go to FORMAT SIGNALS then select and click PROPERTIES.....Near the bottom of window under account you can change from CQG live account to PAPERTRADER for testing.

        Even if my chat says Paper Trading and Sim 001, if I click to turn on auto trading it is always done with REAL account!

          And an unrelated 2nd question, no matter what I do, my back testing only goes back about 2 1/2 months tops (43 or 44 trading days), can never get it to go 180 days as you can select. Any suggestions?

              Jojo, I experienced that too obviously but was lucky and made some $$$. Many times I am instructed how to do something but the options as described are not on MY screens!
