The TradeServer Web Editor is a powerful tool that allows you to create, edit and backtest trading scripts. Here are some guidelines on how to use the Web Editor effectively
The Web Editor has a default page layout with three columns. The left column displays the General Settings and Trade Settings sections, while the center column displays the HaasScript web-editor with its toolbar on top. The right column displays the Logs and Chart sections.
In the left column, you can find the General Settings section, which allows you to set up your account and market for testing. Use the Account selection box to select the account you want to use for testing, and use the Market selection box to select the market you want to test your script on.
The left column also contains the Trade Settings section, which allows you to set up your trade amount, order type, and price data interval and style. Use the Trade amount field to specify the amount you want to trade, and use the Order type selection box to select the type of order you want to use. The Price data interval and style selection boxes control the appearance of the price chart.
In the left column, you can also find the Script Settings section, which displays input fields for your script. This section allows you to set up your script according to your requirements.
