tog_minusHow to view strategy performance

Strategy Performance

While the Account Performance tab will generate performance report against your account's trade history, the Strategy Performance menu allows you to generate a performance report against the trades generated by the selected strategy.




Real-time - Generates performance data for your real-time trades only (since the strategy started running) and will exclude historical trades. If your strategy held a virtual position (calculated against historical data) upon starting, a virtual execution representing the average price of this position will be injected into the real-time results to ensure that a trade pair can be created with the executions resulting from the closing of this position.


Historical & Real-time - Generates performance data for both historical and real-time trade data.


Historical - Generates performance data for historical data only.
