Specifies the path to a CSV file containing a list of symbol changes to use when processing imported trade lists


The default if not specified is symchanges.csv in (a) the current OrderClerkFolder or (b) the RealTest program folder.

It is not necessary to use the SymChangeList for trade list symbols which have since been delisted. When using Norgate Data with delisted stocks included, RealTest will automatically find the delisted version of such symbols, e.g. CATM would be found as CATM-202105, assuming that the trade occurred before that date.

The SymChangeList file has three columns: OldSymbol, NewSymbol, ChangeDate. It doesn't matter what the columns are called or whether there's a header row.

The ChangeDate column is optional. If supplied, RealTest will only apply the symbol change to imported trades which occurred prior to that date.
