You can change additional parameters such as trade timing and settings tabs. These parameters are similar to backtest which provides a finer grain control over timing, risk control and position sizes.

Trading day start/end: Controls the days and hours where trading takes place. There is a choice of closing a position either at the end of the day or at the end of the week.

Contact type: This applies to Forex instruments only where the contract sizes can be changed. They vary between micro and standard lots.

Risk Mode:

Fixed Lots (i.e. positions): Risk mode is by default set to 1 lot or 1 unit of a contract or security. This means that every time there is a signal the algorithm executes n unit of that security. For a Forex contract it would for instance execute one Standard Lot by default. For an equity it will buy one share of that instrument.

Auto: Auto is based on a percentage of equity calculation. Depending the account balance, stop loss and risk % it automatically calculates the position size.

Tick sensitivity: Tick sensitivity reacts on every tick. It means that last bar keeps adjusting itself as bid/ask values are received from the broker. This option could potentially create a lot of transaction if you don’t set a limit. Use it only if you know exactly what you are doing.
