I'm new to Tradestation and Radarscreen. I wanted to know if there is an easy way to test a RadarScreen indicator by replaying market data and test it out ? The other option would be plot the indicator on each chart and identify when it would trigger ?

the second question is : how do I compute the daily ATR and use it in my radarscreen indicator ? a generic form of then same question would be - how do I access daily data in my radarscreen scan ?

Can you help answer these questions

Hi matthaius,

as far as I know you can't replay the data in Radarscreen (this goes for all Tradestation). You would need to convert it to an indicator and do it visually on the chart or via the debug output bar for example.

If I recall correctly, I answered your question regarding the daily ATR in a different thread already.

Thanks for the help. Yes, I'm sticking with just the intraday period now.
