Using the money management script, you can debug and trace a trading system simulation by two ways.


- Select your trading system then click on "Update"
- Select "Money Management" tab then click on "Add a new money management script"
- Click on "Update Script" to open the money management editor

First function:

Divers.Output("the text goes to the Detailed tab in the trading system report");


int buySignals = Data.GetBuySignals().Count;
Divers.Output("Number of buy signals for the current period: " + buySignals);

Gets the number of buy signals for the current period and then displays the number in the detailed tab of the trading system report.

Second function:

Global.Trace("The text goes the output window (View -> Output)");


int buySignals = Data.GetBuySignals().Count;
Global.Trace("Number of buy signals for " + Divers.CurrentDate.ToString() + " : " + buySignals);

You can use these functions in all events of the money management script. For example, you can use the OnNewPosition event to analyze new trades.

Trading financial instruments, including foreign exchange on margin, carries a high level of risk and is not suitable for all investors. The high degree of leverage can work against you as well as for you. Before deciding to invest in financial instruments or foreign exchange you should carefully consider your investment objectives, level of experience, and risk appetite. The possibility exists that you could sustain a loss of some or all of your initial investment and therefore you should not invest money that you cannot afford to lose.
