There are several ways to open positions inside a bot. You can use a scanner automation to evaluate the market for opportunities at scheduled intervals. You can enter a new trade by selecting the “+” icon in the Positions tab and choosing any strategy type to open a position. Or you can create a button in the Automations tab. Bot buttons enable you to open a position with a custom order when the button is clicked.
When you add a button, you can create a new automation or select an automation from your library. You can customize the button for any strategy type and make the automation as simple or complex as you like. Custom inputs can be set when the button is clicked, so you can tell the bot exactly what you want it to reference when the automation runs.
Bot buttons are especially useful when you want to run a specific automation instantly. Buttons save you time and allow you to avoid the process of manually entering a trade. Positions opened with a button can still be managed with monitor automations within the bot, so you’re still in complete control of your trades.
