Understanding Trade Settings for Effective Bot Configuration

Trade settings play a crucial role in configuring trading bots to execute effective trading strategies. In this comprehensive guide, we will explore the various parameters available in trade settings and their significance in optimizing bot performance.

  1. Initial Volume: The "Initial volume" parameter determines the initial trading volume or position size when entering a trade. Traders can specify a value ranging from 1 to 20, depending on their risk appetite and capital allocation for each trade.

  2. Minimum Profit: The "Minimum profit" parameter sets the minimum acceptable profit percentage for a trade. Traders can define the minimum profit threshold, ranging from 1 to 100, to ensure that profitable trades meet their desired criteria.

  3. Stop Loss: The "Stop loss" parameter establishes the maximum tolerable loss percentage for a trade. It allows traders to limit potential losses by defining a stop loss level. The stop loss value can be set between 1 and 100, depending on the trader's risk management strategy.

  4. Minimum Buy Signals: The "Minimum BUY signals" parameter determines the minimum number of buy signals required from indicators before executing a trade. The specified minimum buy signal count cannot exceed the number of indicators added with buy or both signal types. This condition ensures that sufficient buy signals are generated before entering a trade.

  5. Minimum Sell Signals: The "Minimum SELL signals" parameter sets the minimum number of sell signals needed from indicators before executing a trade. Similar to the minimum buy signals condition, the specified minimum sell signal count should not exceed the number of indicators added with sell or both signal types.

  6. Trailing Buy: The "Trailing Buy" parameter enables traders to set a trailing stop for buy orders. It allows the bot to adjust the stop loss level based on the price movement to protect profits. Traders can define the trailing buy value between 0.0001 and 20, depending on their preferred trailing strategy.

  7. Trailing Sell: The "Trailing Sell" parameter functions similarly to trailing buy but for sell orders. It allows the bot to adjust the stop loss level for sell orders, trailing the price movement to maximize profits. Traders can specify the trailing sell value within the range of 0.0001 to 20.

  8. Execution Type: The "Execution type" parameter determines the order execution method for trades. Traders can choose from three options: Passive limit, Aggressive limit, and Market.

    • Passive limit: Places limit orders on the order book and waits for them to be filled.

    • Aggressive limit: Immediately executes orders at the best available price on the order book.

    • Market: Executes orders at the current market price.

Martingale Strategy:

The Martingale strategy is an optional feature that traders can enable. It is a progressive trading strategy that increases trade volume after a loss to recover losses and generate profits. The following parameters are associated with the Martingale strategy:

  1. Percent: The "Percent" parameter determines the percentage increase in volume for each subsequent trade in the Martingale progression.

  2. Deviation: The "Deviation" parameter defines the acceptable deviation from the initial entry price at which subsequent trades are executed in the Martingale progression.

  3. Maximum Trade Request: The "Maximum trade request" parameter limits the number of consecutive trades that can be executed in the Martingale progression.

Pivot Point:

The Pivot Point feature helps traders identify potential support and resistance levels in the market. The following parameters can be adjusted for Pivot Point:

  1. Type: Traders can choose from different types of Pivot Points, including Traditional, Demark, Classic, Woodie, Camarilla, and Fibonacci. Each type offers a unique calculation method for determining support and resistance levels.

  2. Timeframe: The "Timeframe" parameter allows traders to select the desired time interval for Pivot Point calculations. Options include Day, Week, Month, and Year.

Support Level and Resistance Level: Support and resistance levels are crucial price levels that indicate potential buying (support) or selling (resistance) zones in the market. Pivot Points help identify these levels, allowing traders to make informed trading decisions.


Indicators are tools used to analyze market data and identify potential trading opportunities. To add an indicator, click the "Add new indicator" button and select the indicator type. Traders can customize the signal type and adjust specific parameters for indicators that offer customizable settings. After adding an indicator, it will be displayed in the indicators section, showing its status, signal type, name, and settings. Traders can edit or remove indicators as needed.


Understanding and properly configuring trade settings are essential for optimizing trading bot performance. By adjusting parameters such as initial volume, profit targets, stop loss levels, signal requirements, trailing options, execution types, Martingale strategy parameters, and Pivot Point settings, traders can tailor their bot strategies to their specific trading goals and market conditions. Experimenting with different settings and analyzing performance metrics can help traders refine their strategies and enhance their trading outcomes.
