Getting Started Top Tips
1. install, post check compile to see MTDS Strategies
2. Setup sim accounts for using segregated real-time tests
3. Connect, open new workspace, Open a chart and add a strategy - do not change instrument, change timeseries only. Open a new chart for each instrument/strategy test - Save the Workspace
4. Use the correct Historical Fill Settings for custom renko and other bars which smooth data and move the open - during backtest or viewing historical stats on a chart, this will compensate by moving the fill price at the bar close instead of the next bar open - so consider 1 tick slippage also.
5. Use the NinjaBuddy to change parameters and restart for very quick backtest and config changes
6. Do not change the account parameter from the NinjaBuddy Configuration only stop the strategy and do this from the strategy tab
7. Save templates via the Ninjabuddy menu and load these
8. If you find errors with workpsaces, such as indicators stuck on a chart you cant remove - then simply close the chart and save the workspace and try again.
9. When you are realtime trading, don't fiddle around too much and move charts and add change things or NT7 can lock up!!!
10. Always flatten all positions and cancel all orders when restarting a strategy to avoid stuck orders and other issues with NT7 ,stuck orders prevent the start of a strategy so you have to remove the strategy thn add it back etc
