How to set and use Strategy’s Position Priority

Position priority defines the way signals are selected every day to be sent to execution. Assuming on a specific day, the strategy issues 20 signals each with a buying value of $10,000. Now, let’s say that the portfolio budget is $100,000 (defined in Portfolio Capital), this means that we can only issue 10 orders, the other 10 of the 20 signals will not be send for trading and will be ignored.

How do we tell the system, which signals to select and which ones to ignore?

Advanced topics; writing a filtering strategy, build your own indicator and working with arrays, vectors, etc.

A powerful way to achieve great strategy performance with Strategy Seeker is to launch a “dual strategy” testing. This means, using two different strategies, each in different step. First, create a strategy that seeks specific symbol behavior (we call it the ‘filtering strategy’) and use it to create your specific universe (using Add2Universe function in the strategy, see previous posts). Second, use another strategy, that expect only symbols with the pre-defined behavior (as defined by the filtering strategy) and ‘milk’ it, resulting in very high testing performance.

New, Debug log file download at Lab->result menu

As you may recall, DebugMSG function writes debug message into your strategy's log file. Until now, we could access the log file only from the Charts menu using the last tab. This means that we could not view the log file content resulting from multiple symbol's back-test or forward-test. Now we can! Find all your debug logs (named by the strategy name) in the result tab within Lab menu. Please note that you better download the log file and save it in your local computer, Strategy Seeker server deletes all log files every night 01:30 am UTC. Have a great trading week,
