If you have purchased one of our classic trading systems, you can request from us a service where we will find the optimal set of parameters for any given symbol. You simply send us an email with the name of the Classic Trading Robot and the symbol that you wish to have optimised.
~ This service is only available for the classic trading strategies and is for single symbol only ~
What Happens If a Symbol Cannot be Optimised?
Sometimes we cannot optimise a certain symbol, some will perform better than others, if this happens we will inform you that you should not trade with the symbol using the robot. We will offer to optimise another symbol free of charge.
How Do We Find the Best Results?
We use dedicated servers to run backtests and record the performance results of your robot, we then run the optimisation module that is built into the cTrader platform to find the best settings for the symbol you want to be optimised. Additional backtesting is executed using these new settings and the values recorded and we will continue optimising and backtesting until we have found the best possible parameters settings.
What Timeframes are Optimised?
We will ask you what timeframe you want to optimise for the symbol, this timeframe will be used for the backtesting and optimisation, we cannot guarantee that it will perform as well with other timeframes.
What Parameters are Optimised?
We will get the best settings for all the parameters apart from the stop loss, take profit and trailing stops, we recommend not fitting these values as it will give false readings, parameters that we can optimise are indicator values, trading hours and trading levels.
What Information Do We Need?
You will need to tell us which Broker you are using, the name of the financial instrument (symbol) and the timeframe you wish to trade with.
Future Performance vs Backtest Results
If you have good backtest results a from the beginning you will have a much higher probability of success, but please be aware that your actual results may not be as good. The idea is to increase your probability of getting winning trades and making a profit, so anything you can do to achieve this is worth it.
If you would like to learn how to optimise your own parameter settings than we have recorded video tutorials to help you achieve this.
