QuantShare Trading Software: New Features in the 3.4.1 Version

Updated on 2015-10-26

One of the main new features of the new 3.4.1 version of QuantShare is the new Quote Sheet tool for the real time version.

Below a brief description of some of the different features we have added to this new version.

Quote Sheet Tool

You can create a new quote sheet by selecting "Tools -> Quote Sheet".

We have created this tool to make it easy to display real time data from your data provider. All you have to do is type the security ticker name under the "Symbol" columns.
Note that if you expand the quote sheet control, more columns will be added.

By right clicking on the quote sheet you would be able to do many things such as enabling sorting (click on a column header to start the auto-sorting feature), inserting a divider, changing the row color... and updating the displayed columns.

To display more columns in your quote sheet, right click on the quote sheet then select "Settings". In the "Column" tab, you can add for example a column to display the day's high, day's low, bid, ask, sector, industry...
Note that some fields such as the OptionCallOpenInt, Lastyield, TradeCount... are available only when Interactive Brokers is selected as data feed.

One more important thing to know is that each quote sheet should be associated with a data provider. You can have different quote sheets where each one displays data from a different data provider.

To update the data provider associated with a quote sheet, select the "Settings" column in the "Settings" control we opened previously. Next to "Data Feed", select your data provider. Only connected data providers are displayed there.

Trading System Report

If you still don't know how to create and backtest a trading system, we highly recommend you begin by reading this blog post:      
The Ultimate Guide to Create Trading Systems in QuantShare

In the trading system report that appears once a backtest is completed, select "Report Settings" tab then click on "Generate HTML Report". This will generate and display an html report for your trading system.

In case you want to update the report look, open your QuantShare folder (it is usually c:\program files\ctrading\quantshare) and edit the "tstemplate.html" file.
The QuantShare report tool uses that file as a template to create the html report. All it does is update the different tags with the appropriate system result information.
As an example, it replaces the following tag ({{EquityChart}}) with the equity chart html tag.

Scale in-out Signals on Charts

You probably know how to display your trading system's signals (buy, sell, short and cover signals) on a chart but in case you don't, all you have to do is click on the "Plot Entries & Exists on chart" check box in the trading system report form.

In this new version, the scale-in and scale-out entries and exits will be displayed as well on your chart (Gray arrows). Of course you will be able to click on these arrows to display the number of shares bought or sold as well as the entry/exit price.

Recent Orders

To open the "Recent Orders" control, select "Portfolio" then "Recent Orders". The control will display all the recent orders you have taken manually or automatically using your automated trading systems, charts or entry orders forms.

Note that this control is available only in the real time version.

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. You should be aware of all the risks associated with trading and seek advice from an independent financial advisor if you have any doubts.
