    Straregy Analyzer Order Quantity

    If the Order Quantity is left to 'strategy' what quantity will the Analyzer automatically assume? And is there any way to set the stop level and position size to risk a predetermined percentage of account size. I ask this all in reference to the Builder.

    Hello demo166130,

    Thanks for the note.

    When Order Quantity is set to "Strategy', the quantity that you define in your strategy will be used, for example, EnterLong(2). If you set Order Quantity to Default Quantity, you can specify a quantity to use through the Strategy Analyzer instead of the quantity in the code.

    You could not set a dynamic stop based on the account size through the strategy builder. The code would need to be unlocked to set this up. Below is a brief example of setting a stop loss of 0.01% of the active account:

    Code:
    EnterLong(1);
    SetStopLoss(CalculationMode.Price, Close[0]-(Account.Get(AccountItem.CashValue, Currency.UsDollar)*0.0001));
    Below is a public reference sample strategy that utilizes SetStopLoss and also modifies the price of a StopLoss. It could prove useful just to see the structure of a strategy that uses stops and targets.

    Please let me know if I can assist further.
