Reverse mode for backtesting BTCUSD (problem in setting up short position)

Hi there!

I was confused in making Short position by "SetHoldings(_symbol, -1.0);"

As you can see in the report below, there're only Long positions and liquidations. No Short positions.

How can I fix it?

Thanks!

Update Backtest








there is no short position .......

i've heard its not available

You can only buy with the currency you have available in your portfolio. GDAX is a cash-only, long-only brokerage and doesn't support margin trading at this time.

Thanks for your reply. I found out that I can backtest Short postions by using Long positions with sign "-" at the results ))
