Advanced Bots

Available to Premium and Professional users.
Advanced Bots give users absolute control over the parameters associated with a technical indicator. New users or traders are strongly advised to understand how a technical indicator works before trying to configure the indicator's parameters.
Professional Plan users have access to 1 minute Trading Frequency and Trading on Extended Hours.
To access the settings, simply add Advanced Bot (only Premium and Professional users will be able to) and choose the technical indicator.
(adding indicator condition)
Click the settings icon in the green box. The parameter window will pop up. An example for Bollinger Band is shown below.
Please note that this setting applies to the Entry indicator values. If you add Bollinger Band to your exit condition and click on the settings icon, you will see the corresponding Exit indicator values.
You may also choose a different Period for each Entry and Exit indicator values.
This User Guide will not dwell into the mechanics of each parameter for every technical indicator. This subject requires your own self-study.

Active Trailing

If Active Trailing is enabled, it means that the extra order will be triggered if the indicator values continues to fall to the Level configured for Extra Order.
If it is disabled, it means that the indicator value has to rebound above the Base Order indicator Level and falls back to the Level configured for Extra Order, in order for the Extra Order to be executed.
Example A: if Active Trailing is enabled using simple 30 RSI signal for buy, and 25 RSI signal for extra order.

Exit Condition

StockHero's Advanced Bot offers quite a few conditions for exiting a deal. One of the popular one is through Indicator Exit. Some traders would like to pair an exit indicator with a minimum profit. Hence, StockHero offers a Minimum Profit for Indicator Trigger option.
This is useful when the bot enters a deal at a set indicator level (for example RSI = 30 and price of a stock = 3000) but if the user selects RSI = 70 for exit AND if the market had been free falling after the deal is opened, even though the RSI may rebound to 70, the exit price could still be lower than the entry price. Closing a deal at this stage would result in a loss.
Hence, a trader may require a deal to have at least profit even though the exit indicator condition is met.
For example, if Minimum Profit for Indicator Trigger is NOT enabled:
Action
RSI
Price
Buy stock X
30 (Entry condition met)
3000 USD
Does nothing
25
2900 USD
Does nothing
35
3050 USD
Does nothing
25
2700 USD
Sell X
70 (Exit condition met)
2950 USD
exit with loss
But, if Minimum Profit for Indictor Trigger IS enabled:
Action
RSI
Price
Buy stock X
30 (Entry condition met)
3000 USD
Does nothing
25
2900 USD
Does nothing
35
3050 USD
Does nothing
25
2700 USD
Does nothing
70 (Exit indicator met but Min Profit not met)
2950 USD
Sell X
75 (Exit indicator and Min Profit met)
3100 USD
