I dont want to put in TP SL for exit. I want to exit of the basis of an indicator.

You can implement this in Streak. You just need to set a large TP SL, (example TP: 50% SL: 50%) so that it does not get triggered easily. Then you need to set the exit condition. (example Close crosses below 50 EMA)

I backtested the Nifty 50 index, but after deployment, my orders are getting rejected.

You cannot place orders on indices itself since a index cannot be bought or sold. To trade on indices, you need to place orders on Futures instruments.

Why am I not being able to exit my CNC position? Why is it asking for TPIN? What is TPIN?

As per SEBI guidelines, you are required to submit physical Power of Attorney(PoA) for your demat account, in favour of your broker to avoid giving TPIN while exiting you delivery based(CNC) positions. In case you have not submitted a PoA, you can still sell your stocks from your demat but you would need to enter your TPIN + OTP while exiting. Please contact your broker regarding this.

Why do we give notification on close of a candle?

Streak sends signals on the basis of Open, High, Low and Close data. The OHLC data is only available after a candle closes. The OHLC data is also used by most technical indicators for calculation. Streak checks the strategy condition after the close of every candle and sends a notification immediately. For more details read this article. Additionally, you can also check the discussions here.

Why time in backtest is different from actual signal?

Streak sends an entry/exit signal at the close of a candle. During a backtest, in the transaction details, the opening time of the signal candle is shown to maintain consistency with your broker terminal chart. However, after deployment, you will get a notification at the close of the signal candle. The signal candle remains the same though. You can read more about this here

Do you support CDS and MCX options? Why can't I find Finnifty options in Streak

Streak currently support stock and index options instruments in the NFO segment only. We would be adding support for CDS and MCX options in the future. Finnifty options will be added shortly.

Can I backtest a strategy on a specific day? What is the minimum backtest period?

No, several technical indicators takes some time to adjust and give correct values. This is because the indicator's current value is also dependent on previous candle indicator value. For example, EMA, RSI, ADX etc.

ADX is dependent on +DI and -DI, which in turn is dependent on ATR. Even ATR requires a small amount of data to adjust it's value. When you check the charts, the indicator is calculated considering all historical data. However, when you backtest and provide a start and a stop date, the data for only that period is fetched and then indicator based on your conditions is calculated and then your condition is checked. Hence you need to run the backtest for the entire 3 month, 1 year or 5 Year (depending upon your timeframe) and search the specific date in the Transaction details
