    A Community-Based Project Designed for Experienced Traders

    The Switchback trading system is the direct result of over three years of end-user feedback, upgrades, and improvements. When we release a new update the new features are gathered from traders who are using the system in real-time, this enables the product to grow organically and existing customers benefit by getting the new features for free.

    Switchback User Guide

    This product comes with a comprehensive user manual to help you understand all the parameters and how to set up and use this complex strategy.


    Watch Video Tutorials

    Watch all the tutorial videos on YouTube to help you configure and get the most out of the Switchback Forex Trading System.


    Lifetime License with Free Updates

    The license type is perpetual where the customer can use the licensed software indefinitely and receive free updates when they occur.

    All updates will reflect what the customers feel would improve the product, so you benefit from the strategy of improving over time.


    FREE News Release Manager Professional

    Also included with the trading system we provide the cTrader News Release Manager to help reduce losses when a high-impact news release occurs.


    Avoid High-Impact News Events

    The back and forward test results would be even better if you used the ClickAlgo News Release Manager as heavy losses will occur during these events. Please note that we cannot back-test the news release events and you may see drawdown spikes when this occurs.


    A Zero-Data-Fitted Trading System

    This type of system does not benefit from data fitting the parameters with optimization, but instead, the values need to be adjusted manually, this means is that in theory, it should perform just as well with fresh data on a forward test or real-time trading.


    ClickAlgo Coronavirus Warning


    Due to the recent coronavirus outbreak, our backtest results will fail towards the end due to the markets crashing and swinging up and down, we strongly recommend that you do not use this trading system on a live account until after this is over and the markets stabilise again.


    Example Settings Included

    You will find some example settings with manual adjustments included with the download to help you get started, these are very basic settings and only use a small % of the full features, but they should give you an idea of what is possible.
