How to save your projects and draw effective lessons from your trading

Project is a saved testing strategy with all its features inclusively. Project saves all its structure with orders, charts, and indicators which were placed on these charts. And after opening the project, it restores its entire saved features & elements. For convenience and ease, you can save your current project in this way – Go to File → Select “Save project” or “Save Project as…”

To open your saved project: Click File → Open Project:

You’ll see the window with the list of saved projects. Select the project you need and click Open:

You can use such a point of restoration to save some essential parts while testing the same strategy, and then when it is necessary, to reverse to any of its points you have saved.

Use two buttons on the Toolbar:

Open project and Save project

Project restoration saves your time: you can save just your strategy project, or even a couple of parts of one and the same strategy, and then come back to any saved point any time you wish. It’s easy, quick, and practical and gives you an opportunity to simply save the point you want or freeze some interesting trading spot.

You can start a current project from the beginning or from the necessary date in any time of testing.

To do this, please click Restart Project From date button

In the opened dialog window please enter the necessary date and time for restarting the project or leave the default value to start your project from the beginning.
