Comment on EA's for auto buy/sell signals - Pi

1. In the backtest, you have buy, buy exit, sell, sell exit options. If you want to backtest with different conditions for profit booking of buy and sell entry, then you will need to run backtest twice, once for buy strategy and use Sell and sell exit for Profit and SL. Similarly backtest on your sell strategy separately.
2. Yes best backtest on the underlying rather than the futures since there is no continuous futures data on Pi yet. If your strategy includes volume data, then yeah doing this on index spot will not be possible. We are working on giving continuous future charts in Pi, but this will take some time.
