Now let’s take a look at the Signals window. This window allows you to review what the robot is doing. If you chose to confirm each individual entry and exit, this is the window that lets you do confirm them. This looks like several of our windows. At the top there is a table listing all of the signals generated by the strategies, one per row. You can rearrange and resize the various columns. These show you data about each signal. At the bottom are several buttons that let you act on these signals. Different actions are appropriate to different signals. On this signal the “open position” button is disabled because we have already opened that position. For this signal we can still open the position. Notice that a button is available if it applies to at least one of the selected rows. For example, I might want to hide everything that is not active. Or I could decide that I want full control of the exit time for each of these alerts. Or I could decide that I want the computer to control all of the exit times. Remember, the config panel of the main window lets you set the default way that we close positions. But you can take control of this for a signal at any time using the signals window. The copy button allows you to copy the selected rows into the clipboard. You can paste them into another application, like Excel or Email. The symbol column says which symbol this signal applies to The direction column says which signals are long and which ones are short. Initial signal time says when we first received the alert. Entry state can be one of the following. Requested, we have attempted to buy or sell this stock. Other columns like the order type and the position size will give you more details on this request Waiting – Nothing will happen until you manually confirm the request Timed out – This signal was in the waiting state, but you never confirmed it. However long you have until the exit signal, you only have half that long to confirm the entry. Entry time is the time when we actually tried to enter the position. This will be blank if we never tried to enter the position. Exit state can be one of the following: Auto – the software will automatically try to exit the position at the given time. Manual, the user will have to use the Now button to manually exit the position. Requested, we have already started the process of closing the position. Again, other columns will help you determine the exact state of the position. Exit time is the time when we started to exit the position. This will be blank if we have not started that process. Recommended exit time comes from the strategy. If the signal is set to auto, this is the time when the robot will automatically close the position The remaining columns will be described shortly.
