After the initial launch of the SST Autotrader Study there were a few people with questions. This blogpost is an attempt to follow up on some of those questions by going through a trading case study and setting up the autotrader study to support the selected strategy. There also have been new additions to the SST imbalance study which will be covered as well. Check out the video below where you can see how you can create a strategy around buying and selling imbalances. 


Before we start ...

Please note that I am not promoting any trading strategies on this website. These case studies are made to show you the power of the SST Autotrader Study for Sierra Chart and the options you have to start to automate parts of your trading or quickly test a trade idea. When you have strict rules on entries, exit and trade management, than automatic trading can be something for you. The SST Autotrader Study enables you to quickly implement a trading strategy and keep an overview of your trading activities instead of spending all your energy trying to find the right entry or manually managing a trade. 

The SST Autotrader is not for everyone. You will need to know at least some of the basics of the Sierra Chart platform. Check out the first video in the previous blogpost to prepare the SC platform and read some relevant documentation. Also you will still need to define your own trading concept and strategy. NO, I do not have a proven and tested strategy laying around that is performing well in all conditions. The SST website is not a strategy shop. I only provide #SOLID custom Sierra Chart studies and consulting services.

Signing off

A not to lengthy blogpost this time. Hopefully this is useful for you. You can check out the details of the Imbalance study in a previous blogpost. The Autotrader was first explained in this blogpost. If you have examples you would like to see covered in future case studies, let me know via email or in the comments below.
