Backtesting with Netting account not working
04 Sep 2023, 01:01


I am trying to backtest a strategy using cTrader with a Netting account I have. However, I notice that positions are not being netted. For example, in the backtesting tab, if I execute a market buy EURUSD 1 lot and then execute market sell 1 lot, I end up with two separate positions as opposed to a netted nil position. 


Is this a deliberate feature? Is there any way I can make backtesting function work by netting positions?

Dear trader,

At the moment, backtesting is only supported in hedging mode.

Best regards,
