Exploring Further – Signal Rules

  1. Go to Application Settings->Signal Settings. Tick the Rule: LE place order only in NetPos <=0. This rule protects you from trade misfire. What if you accidentally clicked LE button twice? Or you strategy repaint Buy arrows and send LE again? Test with this rule to find out.
  2. Send LE signal again from button like you did last time. It will show message:
  3. Send LX now to squareoff your net position. Check Net Positions and Trade History.
  4. Send LE again. Since, now NetPosition is 0, it will place order.

Exploring Further – Risk Management

  1. Go to Risk Management tab in APIBridge. Add MaxOrderPerMinute: 2 and hit Ctrl+S. This rule again helps your strategy from misfire. What if, there is continuous buy-sell signal from your strategy?
