    Trade Rules

    The trade rules allow you to define the actions that will provide a bullish or bearish signal for opening trades or sending trade signals. Two types of rules can be applied to any combination of indicators.

    1. Bullish/Bearish Signal: where an indicator is showing a bullish signal to trade based on its parameters.
    2. Crossed Above/Below: where indicator #1 crosses above or below indicator #2, use mostly for moving averages.

    How to Backtest Your Strategy

    The ability to backtest an automated trading system is very important as this will show you how your strategy would have performed with historical data, although backtesting is no indication of how the system will perform with new data, it helps increase the probability of how it will perform.

     

    How to Optimise Your Strategy

    Opt for the premium version and unlock the ability to generate and export the complete source code for your developed strategy. This feature empowers you to construct a cBot using cTrader Automate (Algo) and leverage the optimization tool to identify the most effective settings within a specified timeframe. Known as Optimization or Recalibration, this process significantly enhances the likelihood of securing successful trades.
