Database Control using Norgate to select 1 index for trading

I am using Norgate platinum and filled a new amibroker database.

How do I restrict the symbols that an algo would place orders on when connected to IBC. For instance if I only wanted to trade SP500, and not the entire universe of Norgate platinum symbols, can I select a setting to restrict the database to these symbols only? Is it necessary to include code that does this or can an Amibroker setting do this? I can backtest each index separately but if connected to IBC, i believe the entire database would be open to trades.

thanks in advance!

Use something like:


As part of your entry rules. You should also run against the S&P 500 Current & Past watchlist in your Analysis "Apply To" filter.
