Configuring Trading Systems - Entry through Exit
This window allows you to configure seamless automated trading systems, from entry through exit. Specify the short and long entry conditions, multiple scaleout targets, various stops, the routes for orders. Position Sizing can be configured, as well as specifying particular symbols and time windows for particular trading systems.
When the conditions in the Long Entry and Short Entry boxes are met, the symbol is sent to KATP for execution. When the conditions in the Long Exit or Short Exit boxes are met, the positions are exited. Positions are also exited when stops or targets are hit.
Just as the Long and Short Entry boxes specify the conditions for Entries, the Long and Short Exit boxes specify the conditions for Exits. If left empty then there no Exit Criteria are specified. The Exit Criteria are tested in addition to the Stop and Target parameters, so whichever is hit first, the Stop, Target or Exit Criteria , will be the cause of the exit. If you wish to have only Exit Criteria, then specify values for the Stop and Targets that will take it out of contention(ie Stops and Target values that are so large that they will not be hit)
