It would be handy to have a quick way to open a clone to a strategy via the right click button.

Sounds like a seldom needed option that would crowd the frequently used context menu for everyone.

From the Strategy Window, there's already a Clone button. But I think you must be asking to do something else.

Is the idea to open a new chart window with the same strategy attached to it?
I think that would be very useful!

Currently, if you want to open the same strategy 6 times, you have to open a new chart window 6 times and drag the strategy into each one, 6 times.
It would be a lot easier to right click and Open New Chart Window with Strategy.

Taking the request at face value I think a Clone context menu request is reasonable.

We may be saying the same thing but just to be clear, I suggest the ability to open a clone of the strategy directly from this menu:

As for me I got it from the start. A 15th option in that already populated menu that would be used thinly is to my mind a sad trend on the GUI overload.

I'll make my case here. The issue is that it's valuable to backtest with different parameters. In order to do that, I need to open a strategy, select the clone button, and start the work.

However, sometimes I will run the existing strategy with new parameters or a new position by mistake - and that can cause the new information over-write the existing info.

I argue that this prevents the mistake and eliminates 2 extra moves - not that those moves are earth-shattering, but it's extra steps that can be eliminated.

It's easier to maintain a single strategy with many parameters, but then only select some of those parameters for optimization and use Save As to save it under a different name (if even necessary).

A better option might be to have parameter groupings. This way there can be a single strategy, but the different groupings can be used for different situations.

Thanks for the update, gentlemen. I've been using this feature all weekend!
