Simulation Components
  • Timing Lists – A Timing List is a set of dates generated through a consistent method of market analysis. You can create and save as many timing lists as you’d like and the simulator will test them all.
  • Situations – A Situation defines the new market condition on the associated timing date such as Up, Dn, or Neutral. A subsequent action will be taken based on each situation. ie. Buy Long, Sell Short, ect.
  • Money Management Templates – These are portfolio management guidelines such as the number of stocks to trade, spending options, industry diversification, reinvestment options, ect.
  • Stop Templates – Instruct the Simulator to sell or cover any stocks meeting predetermined conditions. For example, sell stocks when a trailing stop level is met or a moving average crossover occurs. You can use the preset stop criteria options or create your own. (ProTrader required for M.A. crossover)
