How to Setup & Load Input Parameters

Each robot should already have the correct input parameters, these are the adjustable parameters that you can modify to change the trading performance of the robot, the only item that does not get updated is the symbol name, so make sure the symbol name for the input parameter is the same as the name of the robot (cBot) or the trading results will be poor.

Low 1-Year Backtest Settings

We have provided 1-year backtest settings, this is measured by the amount of maximum balance drawdown that occurs during the backtest.

If for any reason you modify the settings, you can load the original values at any time from the files that were included with the download, the folder is called Trial Parameter Sets as shown above in the image.

 

Once you have installed the robots (cBots) you are all ready to start trading, but before you start double check that everything is ok by running a backtest, the next section will explain how you can do this.
