Charting with buy and sell signals

How do I see my code reflected on a chart with graphically drawn buy and sell signals?

Update Backtest








Hi Ted,

Hope this helps:
In the backtest i am posting there is an example algo for Custom Charting with several features demonstration. After running take a look at "Trade Plot" Chart.

// Chart - Master Container for the Chart:
var stockPlot = new Chart("Trade Plot");
// On the Trade Plotter Chart we want 3 series: trades and price:
var buyOrders = new Series("Buy", SeriesType.Scatter, 0);
var sellOrders = new Series("Sell", SeriesType.Scatter, 0);
var assetPrice = new Series("Price", SeriesType.Line, 0);
stockPlot.AddSeries(buyOrders);
stockPlot.AddSeries(sellOrders);
stockPlot.AddSeries(assetPrice);
AddChart(stockPlot);

// Later in your OnData(Slice data):
Plot("Trade Plot", "Price", data.Bars["SPY"].Close);

Fantastic. Thank you for assisting. Please accept my apologies as I am not

quite sure how to implement what you have posted and I don't see any

buy/sell markers in the screenshot to indicate that it might be capable of

producing them.



I know I am missing a lot of newbie stuff here. Any further direction would

be helpful.
