RightEdge - The Ultimate Backtesting and Trading System Development Platform

Starting a Live System

This help topic provides a very high level overview of back testing within RightEdge.  It is assumed that you have already configured a live data service, a Watchlist and created or downloaded a trading system to run.  If not, please follow the links below.

Configuring Services

Setup a WatchList

Create New Trading System

Open a trading system using the Open Trading System... option from the File menu.  If you do not have a trading system, see the Create New Trading System topic.  You can also download existing trading systems from the RightEdge website.

Once a trading system is opened, select the symbols on the Watchlist pane to run this system against.  If you have not configured a watchlist, see the Setup a Watchlist section before continuing.

Now that the symbols are selected, select Run Live from the Build menu.  If there are no errors in the system, the system will begin running.

The system also starts live data for the specified symbols.  See Live Data pane for more information. Double click a symbol in the live data pane to open a live chart into the document area.

The Live System pane will contain information about positions, P/L, etc.

To stop a live system, select the Stop Live option from the Build menu.
