The Costs tab allows you to enter the entry and exit commissions for each trade or share. The commission doesn’t have to be exactly what you pay. For example, if you notice that your model is trading too frequently, you may want to increase costs per trade. This will act as a penalty to the optimizer and result in fewer trades. There are also options for entering slippage and margin.
If you’re trading futures, you can enter a point value for the specific contract, as well as slippage and margin.
If you are trading cross currency pairs and you want your profit and other trading statistics to be calculated in your home currency, you can click on the check box beside “Exchange rate for Forex crosses” and enter the exchange rate for your home currency. This will cause the Trader to convert the cross pair currency into your home currency when calculating profit and other trading statistics.
