Indicators in use (top window) - - in this window you will have the indicators that you are using in this system. If the check box in front of the name of the indicator is not checked then the indicator will be displayed on screen but it will not be used in any calculation of positions in this system. TOP

Use as trend indicator - when selected the highlighted indicator will not be used to trigger buy or sell signals but will be used instead to define the trend for other indicators. For example, if you have one indicator in use as a trend indicator and another in use as a trigger, the system will go long only when the trigger indicator has a buy signal and the trend indicator is in an uptrend. In this simple configuration the system will be flat if the indicators do not match each other. TOP
Invert positions - when select all buy signals will become sell signals and all sell signals will become buy signals. TOP
This system trades at - Select the timing of the trade. Options include: at the bar's closing price, at the next bar's opening price, at the nearest indicator's value. The nearest indicator's value option will try to use the value (when possible) where the system really generated the trade in real time. Note that if your system has any indicator the trades only on the close the system will trade at the close price even if the “trade at the nearest indicator value” is selected. TOP
All trend indicators must be in the same direction - a trade can exist only when all indicators selected as trend indicator are pointing in the same direction. TOP
Trend indicator must be already in the right direction - - If your trigger indicator goes short, the short trade will exist only if the trend indicator is already short. Otherwise, the system will stay flat. If the trigger indicator goes long, the long trade will exist only if the trend indicator is already long, otherwise the system will remain flat. TOP
Use trend indicator only on entries - - when your in a position and the trend indicator changes direction this will not change the position. Only when the trigger indicator changes will the position change. TOP
Allow contra trend trades - - with this option you can select the number of contracts to be traded for trend trades and contra trend trades TOP
Allow multiple entries in the same direction - Allows system to go long or short multiple times at different price points. TOP
No flat position, use only STOP/PROFIT protection - the system will go long or short using the selected indicators but will never go flat using the selected indicators. It will, however, use your selected stops and/or profit protection parameters. TOP
Add position on reentries - - if 'No flat position, use only STOP/PROFIT protection' is selected then when the indicators you are using go flat, the position will not go flat because you have the 'No flat position, use only STOP/PROFIT protection' selected. However, if the selected indicators initiate another position in the same direction, the system will add on more positions. For example, you are long 1 share or contract and the option 'No flat position, use only STOP/PROFIT protection' and 'Add positions on reentries' is selected. Your trigger indicators happen to go flat but your system will not because 'No flat position, use only STOP/PROFIT protection' is selected. Now the indicators happen to go long again. The system will then add one more share or contract for a total of 2 shares or contracts. This will continue until the Max Entries number is reached or the STOP/PROFIT PROTECTION is reached or if the system goes short. TOP
Show trades on the chart - when selected an arrow showing where the trade was initiated will show on the screen. TOP
Alarm on condition - an alarm will go off when the system initiates a position, goes flat, or reverses. If “Only last bar” is checked then the alarm will sound only on the last bar on file. If you use the scroll bar to go backward then forward on the chart (i.e. to do backtesting) then as trades appear the alarm will not sound. TOP
Show indicators names - when checked you will see the system name as well as all indicator names in use by the system. The indicator names will be listed underneath the name of the system in the upper left hand corner of your chart.
