The Start And Stop Trading strategy offers the unique capability of controlling when entry/exit strategies trade, WITHOUT requiring code changes to the entry/exit strategies.

The Start And Stop Trading strategy combines ALL the capabilities of TradingApp Store "ForAllStrategies" products listed below into a single strategy to provide a Volume Discount:

- TradeWhenTrue: Only allow the strategy to trade when an EasyLanguage condition is true

- DailyProfitTarget: Halt trading for the remainder of the day when a daily profit target is hit
- DailyStopLoss: Halt trading for the remainder of the day when a daily stop loss is hit

- TradeTimeWindow: Allow trading to only occur within a specified time window
- TradeDayWindow: Allow trading to only occur on specified days of the week
- TradeMonthWindow: Allow trading to only occur on specified months of the year

- ExitTimeOfDay: Exit the position and halt trading for the remainder of the day at a specified Time
- ExitAtMarketClose: Exit shortly before the Market Close

The "ForAllStrategies" strategy products work alongside entry/exit strategies inserted on the same chart: Built-in, custom, or even "Black Box" strategies, such as TradingApp Store strategies you subscribe to, where you cannot see the source code. For example, the Daily Profit Target strategy exits any open position and prevents further trading when the specified daily profit target is hit. Likewise, the Trade Time Window strategy sets a time window during the day in which trading is allowed, and prevents trading outside the time window. And you can repeatedly insert the TradeTimeWindow strategy or the StartAndStopTrading strategy into the same chart to set multiple trading time windows.

All the "ForAllStrategies" strategies work together - they can all be inserted on the same chart. They can be used in back-testing, optimization, and live trading. The Start And Stop Trading strategy can be used on an unlimited number of trading charts at the same time. WITH A SINGLE OPTIMIZATION you can determine the best times of the day, days of the week, and months of the year to trade a strategy!

For more information on each of the "ForAllStrategies" strategy products please see them in the TradingApp Store.


A video explaining how to use the Daily Profit Target and Daily Stop Loss strategies can be found on Emerald Trading Technologies' YouTube Channel ( Google "Emerald Trading Technologies YouTube" ).

Documentation on how to use this strategy will be emailed to you when you start a free trial or subscribe.
