You can use Custom Percent True indicators to visually backtest conditions on specific symbols.








If you prefer, you can download the video and watch it offline. Choose the Save option and save it to your hard drive. Extract the files to a location on your hard drive and double click on the .html file to launch the video. You must extract the files to your hard drive. You cannot play the video from the .zip file.

Craig-
Just found this video watched it and had some ideas of my own. I was wondering if we could have TC place a marker on the chart when a condition is true (ie. BUY signal and SELL signal)

TeleChart doesn't have the capability of putting a marker on the price chart for each true, but if you plot the Custom Percent True indicator in the middle window, just below the price chart, the spike in the indicator any time the formula is True will serve as kind of a pointer for you.
