Portfolio manager simulates all rules applied at online trading:
  • Limit of number of opened positions - new positions will not be opened, until a free “slot” is available for them (some of previous trades must be closed first)
  • Blocking of crossed pairs - pair, for which one stock is available in currently opened trade is considered as “crossed pair”. Crossed pair is blocked, until the “crossed” trade is closed.
    Example: Let’s have a portfolio with pairs A-B, B-C. Pairs are crossed, since both contains stock “B”. If a pair A-B will enter a position, the pair B-C is blocked till the position A-B is closed.
  • Classification of pairs according to the Fitness function - if more pairs than free slots are available to enter the position (until reaching the limit of opened positions), pairs are sorted according to the “RelStDev” value. Positions with higher absolute value of “RelStDev” are opened preferably.
