    • Watch-list


    You cannot trade the whole stock market. What is your sector, your circle of competence? Watchlists allow you to focus on that subset.

    With SystemTrader, you can create as many watchlists as you want. Watchlists display the information you need about a set of stock tickers: prices, volumes, variations since the previous day, and much more, including the value of any indicator. Realtime streaming analysis let you know at a glance what is happening in your preferred market sector.

    Every watchlist in SystemTrader comes with a powerful and highly optimized stock screener.

    Portfolio tracking

    To improve, you need to know how well you are doing. How does your portfolio compare to the market? What went right and what went wrong in your trades?

    SystemTrader evaluates not only how well your portfolio is performing now, but also how your performance is evolving over time with charts such as the equity curve, drawdowns, monthly ROIs, gross profit, gross loss or profit factor. Performance numbers (T-Statistic, etc.) as well as the status of each of your positions are other valuable metrics that help you monitor your trading.

    • Monthly & yearly ROI


    Most trading systems simply do not work. When a system does work, changing markets can remove its edge. In all cases, if you use technical analysis you positively need to backtest your strategy.

    SystemTrader features portfolio-level backtesting on an unlimited number of stock tickers. Assistants help you build simple trading systems, or you can make more complex strategies using the TSL language. In just a few moments, dozens of statistics and performance curves allow you to decide whether your system is suitable for real-life trading.

    * Backtesting a trading system is testing its performance on historical data. The fact that a trading system demonstrated good performance in the past does not necessarily mean it will perform as well in the future.
