Money Management Simulator Fixed Risk $ Amount sim does not work

Hi Tamas

The Fixed Amount setting in Money Management Simulator doesn't work. 

I've attached 4 screenshots that show the MM simulator doesn't work, but unfortunately cannot attach the strategy file itself as this is over 5mb in size. Please extend the Max Size for file uploads so that I can upload the SQX file itself.

Screenshot details:

  1. Fixed Amount SQX Strat Details - shows the details for the strategy clearly using $100 Fixed Risk $ Amount
  2. Fixed Amount original trades - clearly shows variable lot sizes that fall in line with ATR SL settings in strategy config with $100 Fixed Risk $ Amount
  3. Fixed amount MM settings - shows the settings I'm using in QA4.7 to match the exact same settings as the SQX strategy settings I used to create the strategy (only difference is max lots)
  4. Fixed amount MM fail - shows the QA4.7 MM results not working correctly and using the "Lots if no MM" setting for every trade instead of reflecting the results in the "Fixed Amount original trades" screenshot with the exact same $100 Fixed Risk Amount setting the original strategy was built on

If for some reason QA4 doesn't read the original fixed amount setting, this could be added as a variable to input manually, which will then adjust the fixed lot sizes in the trading results as a ratio e.g. have an input variable for original fixed amount = $100 and variable for desired fixed amount = $50, then simply multiply each fixed trading result and lot size by 0.5.

I know I'm going into solution, but that's my nature as a Technical BA :-)

Status changed from New to Fixed

the problem was in WF simulation in SQ X. We don't copy all the order fields to the simulation results to save memory - because there can be hundreds of thousands of simulaiton orders for a single strategy.

But StopLoss is potentially important, so I added it there to be copied.

This will be working in the new SQ Build 127. So this is not related to QuantAnalyzer, it is a fix for SQ.

Hi Mark,

Is there a script that can be made in the mean time to allow a ratio adjustment to order volumes for each trade in a simple strategy with a rounddown or roundup option? 

For example if 3 orders in a strategy are 0.02, 0.05, 0.04 lots and the order quantity decimal place setting is 2 and a 50% or 0.5x ratio adjustment is applied, this will make the orders with the rounddown option 0.01, 0.02 and 0.02 and the roundup option 0.01, 0.03 and 0.02.
