    Newbie query - sample strategies not executing trades

    Hi,

    I've just started evaluating NT and have connected to Yahoo with no problems. I testing out the sample strategies for back testing and whilst the data loads none of the trades are executing?

    Seems like I'm missing something basic - any ideas?

    Thanks in advance

    mokodo, thanks for the post and welcome to our forums here.

    Are you testing on individual stocks or ETF's?

    Unfortunately indices can't be traded, so for example a backtesting on the SP500 symbol would not be possible.

      Bertrand, thanks for the swift response. I take it that the instruments available are determined by the connection used? (Yahoo shows only stocks and indices.)

        Correct Yahoo supports daily equities data - you can review this grid here as overview for all supported connections we offer.
