The real life depends on the view point. For me the position is only one. There is not such thing as opening of multiple positions for the same symbol. What MT does now is a huge issue according to me. MT forces me to open a new position instead adding to the currently opened one. That costs transaction time and lowers the reliability of my systems.
I'm trading with a broker, which has adding and I never use MT. The only reason I'm writing FST - MT connection is because of you. I also donate this project with my personal free time and capital and I want to make it according my best principles.
Popov, firstly I must mention that I highly appreciate the work you are doing here and if one day you decide to charge for this program I wouldnt get amazed. Its up to you and you should do the thing which is better for you both emotinally and financially.
I hope I'm not like a donkey and I'll change my mind if I see I'm not write. If you can prove that the calculation of the aggregated position profit is any different than calculation of the profit of the separated position I'll buy a beer to you.
Heyy I would be glad if you bought be some drink but I didnt understand what is the subject really.
As I see you think that because we open multiple positions in MT the Winner mode has to allow adding when all of them are at profit. According to me this must be some other mode that determines whether all entries are contributed positively. That will be compatible with the systems which are only able to add to a position (as will be in MT5).
The next point is I think you mention metatrader with MT. If so me either dont use MT. I cant code indicators and backtest in MT is very different for me to test strategies. I was just testing a strategy on FSB and didn't want my system to add a position if there is an open position which is not winner yet. For example;
I am long at 1.4400
after added at 1.4500
and added again at 1.4600
but when price comes back to 1.4500 I wouldnt add it if my previous positions are still open.
I just wanted to mention that point.
I think I couldnt explained my problem explicitly in the first post. I just wanted to ask while backtesting; if I can stop adding to position if one of the positions are loser at that moment. If there isn't anything to stop this process, its ok too, life continues anyway..
