Settings


All settings are in the corresponding "Settings" menu:

"Language" - switch between languages or add a new language if you like to help the author to translate the product.

"Colors" - switch between day/night mode, choose a better chart color scheme or edit it.

"Hot Keys" - set up hot keys.

"Data Folder" - move data to a bigger hard disk if you like. Please note that you don't need to move all the data manually. It's enough to choose a new location, the data will be moved automatically on product restart.

"Slow down on orders" - extremely convenient option, automatically resets simulation speed when any of the orders gets hit. This way you can safely speed up the simulation knowing that it will automatically slow down on limit order activation, SL, TP or margin call.

"More..." - other settings, let's look at them closely:

"Price highlight distance in order list" - how close must be the price to the SL or TP levels to highlight them in the list?

"Proxy server" - an address and port of a proxy server if you have no direct internet connection. Please note that port is required, there are no default proxy ports. You must enter it as domain.com:8080, for example.

"Proxy Login" - your login at the proxy server, if required.

"Proxy Password" - your password at the proxy server, if required.

"Download Timeout" - how long to wait when downloading the data until giving up and restarting downloads? Use it to optimize download speeds on unreliable internet connections.

"Download Retry" - how long to wait until trying to download the data again after the error?

"Download Threads" - number of simultanous download threads. Better limit this number to 8, there will be no benefits with higher numbers. But, if your internet connection is unstable, make this number lower until you get no errors.

"Large Simulation Step" - by default orders get activated on 1-second basis. When you make big steps forward, something like 1 day or even 1 week, it will take a long time to calculate changes over a large number of orders if we try to do it for each and every second. It means going through 24*60*60=86,400 cycles for each of the orders. In this case it may be better to make step size higher to speed up the simulation.

"Fibonacci Channel Levels" - here you can edit default levels for Fibonacci Channel drawing tool.

"Fibonacci Lines Levels" - here you can edit default levels for Fibonacci Lines drawing tool.

"Mouse Wheel","Ctrl+Mouse Wheel", etc. - what does program must do when you scroll the mouse wheel? If you don't like an idea of speeding up/slowing down the simulation using mouse, choose something else instead.

"Account Currency" - default account currency for new simulations.

"Leverage" - default leverage for new simulations.

"Minimum stop distance from the current price" - minimum distance in pips from the current price where your broker allows you to set up SL and TP orders.

"Minimum lot size" - default minimum lot size for new simulations.

"Minimum limit/stop order distance from the current price" - minimum distance in pips from the current price where your broker allows you to set up limit and stop orders.

"Margin call level" - when does your broker calls you about your margin getting too low?

"Lot Size" - default lot size for new simulations.

"Comission per 1,000,000 units" - default comission for new simulations.

"Slippage min" and "Slippage max" - you will get a random slippage between these values. Please note that dynamic slippage may override its maximum value.

"Dynamic slippage ratio" - maximum slippage level depending on current one-minute volatility. Use it to emulate higher slippage on volatile markets, like during major news or announcements.

For example, when you entered static slippage between 5 and 10 pips, plus 20% for dynamic slippage, you will get:

When the market is calm, one-minute fluctuations aren't higher than 50 pips. You will always get random slippage between 5 and 10 pips.

But, when the market gets fueled by some events, one-minute fluctuations may be higher than 100 pips. It means that you will get maximum slippage up to 100*20%=20 pips. If the market becomes crazy by moving for more than 300 pips per minute, you will get up to 60 pips slippage.
