The number of simultaneous executions is not limited. However, the largest number of executions depends on your personal computer capabilities. We don't recommend running more than 100 executions at once. Unless, your computer can handle the task.

Before the trading/simulation can start you have to select the trading parameters:
Choose a trading size. It can be in the Base or in Quoted or as a percentage of the available amount of the quoted coin in your account. The Base coin is the coin on the left side of the coin pair. The Quoted coin is the coin on the right side of the coin pair. For example, BTCUSDT - base is BTC, quoted is USDT.
The sum of all trade size % for the same quoted coin in different executions can exceed 100%. But, in that situation at some point of the trading one or more executions may lack the needed amount for trading. In such case the execution(s) will continue to run. It/They will try to buy again after short amount of time if the rules are still fulfilled. If trading size percent is set on more than one execution, the sequence of their orders does not affect their actual trading size. For example, let's say that strategy A is set to trade with 10% of the available 100 ETH in the account. Strategy B is set with 15% of the 100 ETH. Strategy A will set buy orders with 10 ETH and B will set buy orders with 15 ETH. It does not matter if A places its order before B or the other way around. After close of a trade the win/loss of ETH will trigger recalculation of the trade sizes for next buy orders for both strategies.

Orders type:
For real trading you can choose between market and limit.
Market – all orders will be Market orders. The filling of the Market order can move the price of the trading pair if there is not enough trading volume and your trading size is too big. The order will continue to fulfil on portions during the rising of the price until it is complete. The final price will be the average of all mini portions. This is not bot dependant, but the way exchanges operate.
Limit - the bot will place Limit orders for the opening Buy, Target sell and Trailing target sell. Stoploss and time stop are always executed as Market orders. The price that triggers the buy becomes the price for the Limit order. On the exchange the buying will happen only on this price. If the price moves, the completion of the order will stop. This is not bot dependant, but the way exchanges operate. To give some space so the full or close to full size of the order can fill, you can set orders price tolerance. This is a price range up to which the buy/sell can continue to complete. If the open (buy) position is partial, the closing (sell) will also be with the same amount. After 1 minute if a Buy order is not even partially filled, the bot will cancel the order.
Both types of orders may generate leftovers (amount under the minimum requirement of the exchange for a valid trade). Leftovers are not managed by the bot.

Orders type is not available in Simulation. In simulation when rules are fulfilled the bot simulates Market buy/sell. It calculates the average price of the open/close according to the current real BID prices and the volumes under them. As real buy/sell is not actually placed on the exchange, the open/close on the chart may be outside the candlesticks. That means that the same trade in real trading at that moment would have moved the price of the coin pair.

You can also set extra safeguards - drawdown, total loss and negative trades in a row. They do not stop the current trade with a sell, but stop the whole execution. The bot evaluates them after every close of a trade.
Drawdown stops the execution if the total loss of one or more than one consecutively closed trades exceeds the set percentage.
Total loss stops the execution if the total loss from all trades exceeds the set percentage.
With Negative trades in a row the execution will stop after the set number of consecutive negative trades.
