Bug has been identified
I know you guys have been listening to me griping about this one particular problem.

Problem: the back testing engine and chart trader Pro, not identifying your strategy at the correct time.

It appears someone in upper echelon took me serious. I have just received an e-mail from them stating that yes, this was a bug. A bug of this type could affect all formulas.

Going to send you the e-mail that I received.

I sure hope that I am not getting too excited, but they informed me that this bug will be fixed tonight(per new email-5:00 EST). You know I'm going to check it out.

For all of us I sure hope that it is the bug and they do have a fix.

Thanks Chuck
