    Hi guys,

    When back testing short (or short and long) strategies, the cash balance isn’t reduced when a short position is taken. As brokers typically require a margin to take a short position, this means that the results are skewed compared to practical reality. It’d be great to have an option to require short positions to reduce available cash.

    Thanks

    Kim
