Cloning is used to create an identical copy of the strategy. For instance it can used to copy an existing strategy or branch it into a new version for additional modifications and/or adaptations.
Note that when a strategy is running live it is not possible to modify the strategy to avoid impacting live running strategies. In this case you would be able to clone it and apply changes to the cloned strategy.
The strategy can be cloned directly from the strategy designer by clicking the clone button.
A dialog appears to rename and/or change the name and period of the strategy.
