How to refer my imported tick data ?

I've seen the backtest begins if I select a symbol from the watchlist. But my data is not present in the watchlist, it's just separate on the datastore path. How should I refer my tickdata file in the MySymbolScript class ?

Add the corresponding symbol to the watch list. Then either modify the data store directory RightEdge is using to be the one you imported the data to, or copy the imported .dat file to the data store directory RightEdge is using.

My data is tick data. Should I set the periodicity to 1 minute? It doesn't sound too good.

Yes, set the bar frequency in the folder setup to one minute. It actually won't effect much when you are using tick data for the simulation however. The only thing I think it will do is set the default bar frequency for your system if your system properties don't specify the bar frequency. And that won't affect you much if you aren't using bars in your system logic.

Thanks,
Daniel
