I don't have an exact system for now, but i want to test it manually via Wealth-lab. For example, i want to download data from some data-provider, upload data to the Wealth-lab and set Buy \ Sell signal manually (without dev). I mean, i select a bar, and set a Buy order and it marks on the graphic, next i set up another bar and set a Sell order. And i want to see a screen with information about my trading (buy price, sell price, etc.)

You have an ordering mechanism, but it is related to the real trading, but i just want to do a manual testing. That is i set up a buy price and sell price. It is possible to do it in Wealth-Lab?

Best regards,
Pavel

Thanks, but i didn't get your answer.
I read the manual about the paper trading, but i didn't find - how i can use it for my personal dataset. Is it possible to upload data from file and make paper trading using this data? I don't want to set up an accounts and connect to the data base.


Best regards,
Pavel.

What do you mean by "set a Buy/Sell order"?

Your trial period is over, but did you run any of the Strategies that are included? The idea is to run a strategy that creates trades, and when they occur, they'll appear on the chart. This isn't about discretionary trading, although if you have a file of trades, a special Strategy can "import" those trades and display them on a chart as well as their performance data.

I want to mark on the graphic a point where i want to buy, and mark the point where i want to sell (hand trading). I will make several marks and want to see my trading results. That is i don't want use programming, just set up testing buy\sell on the graphic.

The graphic is a data loaded from the test file.
