I am having trouble getting the commissions aspect. Here’s my scenario. I am trading only one symbol.
I have set these at the Symbol Information page
Round Lot size = 40 ( Its future contract size is 40)
MarginDeposit = -10 ( requires 10% of the capital)
Point Value = 1
For any given trade, the commissions are charged at 220 per contract ( 40 lot size ) for both the buy and sell.
Which mode should I be setting this for this scenario?
On using the $ per trade to 220, my backtest yields positive results.
However, on choosing $ per share/contract to 220, the back test results are horrible. account is exhausted within the first few trades.
What is the right setting for this scenario?
Also, is there a way to see the commissions for each trade in the trade list?
Thanks for all the previous help and this one too
