    NT8: Retain chart positioning when running Strategy Analyzer

    One nice new feature of the NT8 Strategy Analyzer is the ability to view all of the visual elements added to the chart by the strategy, for example, BackBrush coloring and "strategy plots" to highlight working orders or profit-and-loss plots, if so programmed in the strategy. In NT7, these visual elements are not always shown in the Strategy Analyzer chart display, so this enhancement in NT8 is appreciated.

    Another nice feature of the Strategy Analyzer (in both NT7/8) is the ability to quickly try different parameter settings and click "Run" without having to do the arduous 7-step "ClickStrategyIcon-SelectActiveStrategy-UncheckEnable-ClickApply-ChangeValue-CheckEnable-ClickOkay" process that is required on a regular chart. As you can imagine, when rapidly changing and tweaking parameter values, the “7-step” process is time consuming and disruptive to workflow.

    A typical use-case during the strategy development is the process of reviewing each trade and being able to modify parameters quickly on the fly to get a feel for the strategy behavior and sensitivity to different input values on varying market conditions.

    Both the NT7 and NT8 Strategy Analyzers make it easy to change the parameters, however when new parameter settings are rerun, it resets the chart to display at the last bar rather than the area of the chart last viewed, requiring the user to undertake the tedious task of scrolling back to the area of the chart under review. Unfortunately, the workflow gains made by using the Strategy Analyzer and avoiding Enable/Disable are undone given the need to scroll back to the desired section of the chart.

    It would be very useful if the Strategy Analyzer chart acted more like a regular chart in this one regard. If you scroll back to a previous section of a chart and F5/Reload the strategy, the Chart will remember its previous horizontal position and not auto-scroll to the last bar.

    I would not suspect much of an objection to this request since a regular chart behaves this way but would be interested to know if anyone has a strong preference to have the SA Chart always scroll to the hard-right edge.

    Hello whitmark,


    I have submitted a feature request to the product management team for the following feature :


    This customer would like the Strategy Analyzer's chart to display the same timespan when new parameters are entered and re-ran


    I will follow up with more information as soon as it's available. If the feature requests already exists, a vote will be added to it.


    Please let us know if there are any other ways we can help.
