Ignore holygrail
7/4/2003 9:25:54 PM

I have been back testing and using performance.

But I see something is "missing"...

What I would like is the ability to specify either a price or % gain that would trigger a sell for profit.


XYZ opens at 1.00, high 1.10, low .90, close .95.

Now the backtest shows me a loss.

In reality, I would have sold at 1.05 for a gain.

Can you help please?

For the record this is NOT Holygrail. I am his trading buddy.
