CORE sample bots are a great resource for traders to familiarize themselves with one of the core options trading strategies and how they can be automated through Option Alpha.
The intermediate version introduced a Symbol Loop to the scanner automation for multiple tickers to be used. The symbols are set by the Ticker List input and this input is elevated to the main Settings level where it can be changed. The scanner also has a test added to ensure only a single position is open in any ticker.
This advanced version has pushed or elevated the inputs from your automation to the main settings which makes them easier to adjust and customize.
- Symbols Traded: SPY, QQQ
- Position Size: 1 Contract
- Positions allowed to open per day: 2
- Total positions allowed to be open: 2

Up to ten ticker symbols can be used. They are set in the bot level Ticker List input on the bot's Settings panel.
Other inputs for trend and liquidity filters can be set here as well.
As you learn more about autotrading, consider making two clones of this bot. You could leave one clone unchanged to learn from and observe while modifying the other clone to customize its settings and decision recipes to fit your trading style.
