You can do many different optimizations, with different settings, for different periods with different market behavior. Choose your favourite variants and save them as separate strategies so you can easily switch between them when the market changes.

The optimization setup lets you choose:
  • time period for which you want the strategy to be optimized. The more diverse are the moves of the coin in that period, the more robust your strategy will be to market changes. However, it may not be the best strategy for strong up or down moves. We recommend reruning the optimization periodically to see if your strategy needs to be adjusted or to save different variants of the strategy and run them according to changes in market conditions.
  • trade size is good to be included depending on your preferred coin and preferred size for trading. During real trading it can be hard to get in and out of position with big trade size on illiquid coin. Big trade sizes on illiquid coins can move the price of the coin while they are being filled. This can turn profitable positions into losing ones. If you enter trade size the optimization will account for it and will select the best strategies for your preferred trade size.
  • commission rate - you can adjust it according to the commission for your exchange account
  • rules and options of the strategy to optimize - what to be changed and what not. The Advanced options lets you select which rules exactly you want to be optimized.
The optimization result includes 3 strategies in 3 different fields:
Consistent return - stable results in a consistent pattern – in 95% of the time the strategy has a chance to return a similar result.
Risk/Reward – result has the best return for the lowest risk.
Max total return – result has the biggest total return including trades with extreme low or high results.
