First of all thank you for all the generous efforts in producing this software. I must say it is one of the best user-friendly trading tool I have ever come across.

Second, I would like to suggest a backtesting strategy that utilises a pair trading strategy like correlation or cointegration.

Finally, thank you! what a fantastic tool!

A pair trading strategy can be implemented using the money management tool.

How exactly you want the strategy to work?

Hi Husain,

I am waiting for Aris's answer to my question.

How about a spread between 2 symbols ( GDX-GLD) specified and if the value (current/last value) goes beyond 2 std deviations( closing prices ) you buy/sell the spread ?

I cant seem to be getting the multiple pairs running ..

I enter pair1A|Pair1B ; Pair2A|Pairs2B ; Pair3A|Pair3B

it works for Pair1 and Pair2 and then it gives me an error in formula . Can you check why its doing that ?

You should use "," instead of ";".
Semi-colons should be used in the optimize field.

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.
