The user can choose between Simulated Portfolio Back Test and Raw Mode settings when back testing a strategy. Raw Mode assumes that there is an infinite amount of capital and the selected strategy will enter every possible position. Simulated Portfolio Back Test abides by the Simulated Portfolio Back Test Risk Settings panel for a more realistic approach that is accessible by left clicking on the grey gear icon just to the right of the Simulated Portfolio Back Test drop down menu. 
 
See illustration below.
 
 
 
NOTE: The Simulated Portfolio Back Test Risk Settings panel applies ONLY to Wizard Lab's back testing, NOT for live automated trading.
