Dear Sir or Madam:
Per your instruction in posts 8323, I read and follow "AUTO TRADE SYSTEM BACK TESTING" document to simulate a back test for cross overs of two simple moving avarages (SMA15 cross above SMA50= long and then exit and then short when SMA15 cross below SMA50) for profit and loss; however, it does not work. Would you please tell me if I do some thing wrong here?

There is not enough information here to help with.

It does not tell us much to say that it "does not work" when there is a whole procedure to create a trading system and back test it. How do we know where you have gone wrong?

Are you using the Spreadsheet System for Trading study?
