How to Connect Alerts to your broker?

Webhooks have been added to TradingView alerts, which creates endless integration possibilities and makes them a whole different game. By connecting to apps such as 3commas, Instabot Trader, or Alertatron the world of algotrading is also open, as the alerts can be delivered in a matter of seconds.

By using webhooks and Zapier.com you can send triggered alert details to Slack, Twitter, and thousands of other platforms.

  • Since you can't automate your trading directly in TradingView you have to connect Arcturus alerts to a service that can execute orders in a broker.

How to tune the settings

  • This guide is about how to tune the settings and get a good backtest.

If you know what to adjust you will be able to create good strategies for almost any market and timeframe. Please read this guide and play around with the settings. Or you can see our Examples Markets / Timeframes.

 

Let’s get into it

 

Optimize the backtest in the following order

Overview

Read about some key features within the setting panel

Read the ToolTips: Make sure that you read all the Tooltips to better understand how the settings work and how to tune them. Hover over the “i” and a textbox will appear.

Backtest Range: This is the time interval the backtest is based on. The default backtest range includes the maximum historical data that Tradingview provides. If you want to test the Bot on a custom range you can set the Start Date and End Date.

Entry Direction: By default, the Bot is set to look for both Long entries and Short entries. The best practice is to set the Bot to look for entries in the same direction as the overall market trend. Have you identified a strong bullish trend in higher timeframes make sure that Arcturus only takes long entires. If the market is in a strong negative trend make sure that the Bot only takes short entries. By adjusting this setting accordingly to the market trend you increase your edge.

Custom Session: The user can set a custom session where the Bot should execute trades. This feature can be used to make sure that the Bot doesn’t take any trades during night hours, or only taking trade during a preferred session.

Enable “Close the position when the session ends?” if you want to close the position when the sessions end regardless of an exit signal or not.

Section 3

Step 1

The first setting to consider to change is “Precision/Confirmed Entries”

  • The first thing you can try to do is to select Confirmed Entries. Check how the to backtest looks like now.

 

  • The second thing to tune is to select Precision Entries. Use the Precision Sensitivity to adjust how sensitivity Arcturus should be to volatility. A high value returns fewer signals.

 

  • You can also try to change the Exit Signals, you can change between using Precision Exit’s and Confirmed Exit’s (Confirmed Exit’s is Default). Try to enable the Precisions Exits and see how the backtest looks now.  Use the Precision Sensitivity to adjust how sensitivity Arcturus should be to volatility. 

Step 2

The user can also add a price action Filter that sets the underlying trend. 

  • You can Select Short-term or Long-term price action. 

You can then try to change the Filter Sensitivity between 1-5.  A lower value returns fewer signals (in most cases).

 

Step 3

The last step is to adjust:

Entry Direction: By default, the Bot is set to look for both Long entries and Short entries. The best practice is to set the Bot to look for entries in the same direction as the overall market trend. Have you identified a strong bullish trend in higher timeframes make sure that Arcturus only takes long entires. If the market is in a strong negative trend make sure that the Bot only takes short entries. By adjusting this setting accordingly to the market trend you increase your edge. 

Exit: The user can choose Adaptive Exit and Customize Trailing Exit.

  • If you use the Adaptive Exit no extra adjustment is needed. 
  • If you select the Customize Exit you use a trailing stop. You can set the TrailingStop Type and its Distance. 

Stoploss: The last thing to do is to set a stop loss. You can start by enabling the Automatic Stop Loss and see how that works. The backtest will show the performance with the stop loss enable in real-time. You can also set a custom stop loss.
