    In the Back Tester, it would be great to have a “Fixed Amount” option in “Position Sizing”. I would like to be able to enter, say, $10,000 for each trade and have the system use that as the basis of how many shares to buy/sell.

    By way of explanation, I’m a self-funded retiree and need to see what income (capital gain) I can generate rather than portfolio growth. Currently I do the back test on “Fixed Percentage” and then adjust the CSV file signals in Excel to reflect a fixed amount per trade. Effective but tedious! 🙂

    Hi Kim,

    Thanks for that. I am currently doing a big review of the back tester and I’ll see if we can get this added in.

    All the best
