BUILDING A STRATEGY


A strategy consists of 4 essential parts:

  1. Your Indicators:  the technical indicator you wish to use in your strategy
  2. Your Signal Rules: rules define when you are bullish or bearish i.e. when you want to open long or short positions.
  3. Your Trade Timing Rules: you have the option to define one or more additional events that also have to happen subsequently to the initial Signal rule, before actually opening the position.
  4. Your Money Management Rules: define your risk appetite by setting your trade size, Take Profit and Stop Loss targets, exposure caps and more.

Click on one of the existing preset Template Strategies to see how each section is built up.  Once you have found one that you like you can begin modifying it or cloning it into a new strategy, and then start tweaking each component to suit your own preferences.
