The 'Symbol price is above 30-day moving average' decision compares price to an indicator and time frame.


What are the definitions of the various Indicators?

The platform allows you to use many different indicators. To learn more, visit the Handbook and Technical Documentation.

Can I choose any time period for an indicator?

Can I evaluate time frames less than a day, such as hours or minutes?

No, only daily periods are currently available.

Will the indicator readings match with the readings on my platform?

Are the criteria only matched at the time the bot runs?

Yes, the bot references market conditions at each scheduled interval.

Yes, you can group and nest multiple decisions with "and/or" functionality.
