The creator of a strategy should use the About section to describe it in detail and provide as much information as they can to help followers choose wisely. You can explore how a strategy performs on a live market (or markets, in the case of a MMS) and examine backtesting results, along with other statistics, to advise your decision.
You can follow a strategy to subscribe to notifications about generated signals. Read more about following a strategy in the Subscribe to Strategy article.
On the left side of the strategy details page, you will find some basic information about the strategy and its author. All strategies in the marketplace have been created by another user or one of the Signals team.
You can sort strategies by the name of the strategy, it's author, or the rating it has been awarded by other followers.
The Live section shows the time elapsed since the moment the strategy was deployed to Signals' server farm and began executing signals based on real-time data from exchanges.
With Signals, you can define two types of strategies - Single Market Strategy (SMS) for trading on single asset pair, or Multi Market Strategy (MMS) for more complex strategies trading on a range of asset pairings at the same time.
A short description created by the author to give hints about the way the strategy operates. This should ideally outline the general design and what market conditions it is best suited for.
The author of the strategy might also choose to publish a simplified description about the strategy's operational logic.
In the case of a Single Market Strategy, this section shows the exchange and the asset pairing on which the strategy is deployed and operates on in paper trading mode. For a Multi Market Strategy, it lists all markets which the strategy operates across. Next to each market pair, you can see how the strategy has performed since its deployment.
The Alternative Markets section shows which markets the strategy can be used with.
This is a list of all backtests which have been run for various configurations of each strategy. It displays the market pair data which was used to perform the test, as well as the overall performance which the strategy delivered. You can choose to navigate to see more backtest details by clicking the Show button.
All indicators used in creating the strategy are listed in this section. Different types of indicators are used to deliver better results, depending on various market conditions. Learn more about how each type of indicator works in our guide to technical indicators.
Every closed position has an impact on the overall strategy performance. On this chart you can find a historical representation of how the strategy performance has changed over time, since being deployed.
On the Trade chart, you can explore all signals which have been emitted, mapped to the actual price movement chart (in the form of bars in this case), for time they at which they were triggered.
