Yes it works on historical data…you specify the start & end dates…just the same as when you run an EA and specify the start & end dates. It’s limited only to what history you have available. I’ve gone back a year on some and forward traded.
It does show the charts visually too. [B]Basically it replays the history data[/B], calculating any indicators, and you can slow down the rate it replays so you can analyze, draw trend lines, place orders, or whatever.
It has scripts to place market buy & sell orders, pending buystop & sellstop orders, but not limit orders. When you set an order, you specify the stoploss & takeprofit in pips. You can wait for the stop or profit levels to get hit to close the order, or there are scripts to manually close them. However, the version I have does not have an automatic trailing stop…but you can move the stop & profit levels manually while the trade is still open.
Anyways, the only way to know if it’s something you’d find useful is to try it out…here’s where you can get it…301 Moved Permanently
