RightEdge - The Ultimate Backtesting and Trading System Development Platform

Viewing System Charts

This help topic provides guidance on opening charts containing indicators and chart objects that were generated during a simulation.

To see charts with indicators and chart objects that were created by a system you should not open them from the watchlist. Opening a chart by double clicking on the symbol from the watchlist will always open a raw chart, showing only bar data. We do this for a few reasons.

It is good to have a place where you can always get a clear, uncluttered, view of the bar data for a symbol.
Since RightEdge allows multiple sets of symbol results to be open at one time we’d have no easy way to know which set of system results to use to plot indicators and chart object.

After you create a system and run it against a group of symbols a “System Results” tab will be created in your workspace.

From here, you can select one of the following tabs

systemresultstab

On the Position List tab, selecing a position on the top pane will display a list of trades within that position on the lower tab. Double clicking on any of the trades will open a system chart and bring you to the position of that trade.
