Can Seetu be used to trade the e-mini S&P 500 on the CME, and if so, how do you target it for backtesting and then trading?
Bringing this back to the top. I submitted a support request, but was told the best way to get an answer was via the forums.
you can use futures symbols using the SetOption command.
Use Collective2 symbology: https://trade.collective2.com/c2-futures-symbols
The problem is, that Seetu does not have implemented “PointValue”.
It means that Profit/Loss values are not correct.
Hmmm… that doesn’t seem to work. When I use setoption for the symbol, then go to the Targets tab and run a scan or explore or backtest, it throws an error and says there’s no symbol to run it against.
Can you show me your SetOption command?
Ah - perhaps I should emphasize you need to use 2 digits year in the symbol.
Do not use @ESZ7 but @ESZ17.
The reason is that @ESZ7 can be @ESZ07 or @ESZ17 actually.
Sure, here are my SetOption commands… I’d originally used @ESZ7 but switched to @ESZ17 when I saw your note. The whole strategy compiles fine.
SetTradeDelays( 0, 0, 0, 0);
I then click the “Targets” tab and hit “Start Scan” (also tried “Start Explore” and “Start Backtest”). It says “Running Scan…” then stops and says “No Symbol Selected”
Hold on… I believe I may have been mistaken. I had some leftover AFL code that you guys don’t support in there, and didn’t notice the compile error message… checking it out right now.
