Hello my friends, every time we hear the word algos we fell goosebumps, but most of us have never had the opportunity to play with one algo not even in a demo account, but today we are going to change this. I coded a small bot a simple moving average cross over with trailing stops options. So let’s go?
The first step you need to download cTrader. Go here open a demo account and you will get access to the download area.
The second step download the bot, just click Moving Average Cross LeoHermoso.com
Download the file and place it under C\Documents\cAlgo\Sources\Robots
Now open your cTrader.
Right after you select the bot you will see the following screen:
It’s time to set the parameters. Right after that, you will see the bot available on the chart, just click the button and wait for the t cross to see the bot in action.
Ok but if you want things to go faster? To backtest or even optimize it!? That’s simples e fun stuff to do. Follow these steps:
Now you after you add a symbol on the “+” circled on the chart. You will see a screen like this:
Then just hit the play button and wait for the results:
See it’s pretty easy to run a backtest! You can try with different set of parameters and timeframes to see if you get a better result! There is no guarantee that this bot will make you money it’s for educational purpose only, use it at your own risk.
That’s it, my friends, I hope you like it! If you have doubts just leave a reply that I will be very happy to answer you!
My best regards,
