Timetotrade launches Strategy Builder – a strategy development tool for traders and investors

The new timetotrade strategy development tool enables traders to develop, back-test, optimise and simulate trades before risking capital on the markets and can be accessed at www.timetotrade.eu

Every successful trader has a strategy: a disciplined set of rules which they use to enter and exit trades. Their strategies are thoroughly back-tested against historic price data and forward tested in real time before any capital is risked. Unfortunately, far too many traders don’t back-test their strategies because of the time, expense, and programming expertise required to use existing back-testing solutions. As a consequence traders end up losing money as they set about developing and refining their systems in a live trading account.

Timetotrade’s Strategy Builder enables traders to easily develop a technical trading strategy concept, then back test, optimise and simulate trade it in a live test environment, before deploying the strategy through their live broker account. All of this is done through a simple to use “point and click” interface. No programming is required.

Traders can create and analyse anything from a simple Bollinger Band or MACD crossover strategy to complex strategies combining a variety of technical indicators and candle stick price patterns. For example, you could set up a strategy that will analyse how you would have performed over the last ten years had you bought whenever price falls below a lower Bollinger band followed by RSI rising above 30 and sold whenever price rises above the upper Bollinger band.

The system allows traders to quickly identify and eliminate under-performing trading strategies. If a trading strategy didn’t perform well in the past, it’s unlikely to make money in the future. Importantly the system allows traders to test strategies over different time frames and market conditions, and includes tools that help to optimise stop loss and limit order values. Whilst a strategy might work perfectly in a side trending market, it could prove disastrous in a bull or bear market! This can be addressed by combining trending indicators with strength indicators, so that your strategy always adapts to the ever changing market conditions.

The first release of timetotrade's new Strategy Builder includes support for:

  • Trendline and technical analysis trading strategies: Stochastic, RSI, Bollinger Bands, MACD, Moving Averages, Exponential Moving Average, TSI and Williams %R
  • Multi-indicator & multiple condition strategies: positive / negative cross-over; rising / falling threshold; break-out / pull-back triggers
  • Customisable indicator intervals, periods and parameters for different trading strategies
  • Risk Management – risk / reward calculator compares the returns of an investment to the amount of risk taken to achieve that return
  • Drawdown Calculator – calculates the maximum loss a trader can expect to sustain.
  • Stop Loss and Limit Optimiser – the system will analyse the back-test results and suggest where to set your stop losses and limits to maximise profits and reduce losses.
  • Position logic that controls when trades are executed based on whether you are long, short or have no position
  • Event logic that activates and pauses trading rules as the market conditions change
  • Strategies can be back tested against up to ten years of historic price data for : Forex, UK and US Stocks
  • Strategies can then be simulated in real time using timetotrade’s Algo-Trading Simulator.

Dary McGovern, Managing Director of timetotrade commented “timetotrade’s Strategy Builder gives investors access to the tools that have traditionally been the preserve of the institutional fund managers and their teams of programmers. Rather than risk their own money in a live trading account, traders can now test and enhance their strategies in an entirely risk free environment. Ultimately the tools enable accelerated learning and a quick route to profitability”.

ABOUT TECHNICAL ANALYSIS Technical analysis is the statistical study of a security's price movement through the use of charts. Investors look for patterns on charts to help determine a security's future performance and exploit this information to make money whilst avoiding losses. Technical analysis has become increasingly popular over the past several years, as more and more people believe that the historical performance of foreign exchange, stocks or futures is a strong indication of future performance; therefore becoming a self fulfilling prophecy..
