Strategy Designer Revamp


A clear display of your backtesting runs

Based on your feedback, we have been working a lot making the Strategy Designer much easier to use and understand. The strategy designer is now split into 2 parts:

  1. The Strategy Viewer: where you can quickly analyze and compare trading strategies based on their performances
  2. The Strategy Creator: where you can easily create a new strategy in order to test it in backtesting.

The Strategy Designer is now our most advanced interface to create, test and compare strategies, we hope you will enjoy it.

From backtesting to live trading

Strategies created within the Strategy Designer remain in the Strategy Designer until converted into a live profile. They are independent and not affecting your live OctoBot. This means that you can test a Daily Trading strategy on the Strategy Designer that should be trading MATIC while having a live Dip Analyzer strategy that is trading BTC and ETH.

Once you are satisfied with your trading strategy created in the Strategy Designer, you can instantly convert it into a live OctoBot profile
