Hi there, Hoppers!
When you navigate to your backtesting section, the first thing you land on is the config finder.
This tool helps you find a configuration that suits your particular trading style and allows you to fill in some parameters to start with.
This dropdown menu lets you choose a coin which is an available trading pair for your base-currency.
This is a very important one, it will dictate what type of trading you are going to do, short candlesize is usually a quick in and out, small profit/trade but much trades while longer timeframes usually have big profit/trade but less trades, it's all a matter of taste.
Sell based on strategy
If you have a strategy you like and want it to dictate when your hopper buys and sells, enable this.
Take profit at
At which percentage do you want the hopper to sell your asset for profit
If you want to keep your losses under control, use a stop loss which will sell the asset for you if it went down too much, this means that you will sell at a loss!
This feature allows you to start riding the trend upward and sell whenever the asset dropped a certain amount, thus allowing you to catch spikes
Trailing stop loss but reversed, whenever the asset drops and rises a certain amount the hopper will buy, allowing you to catch the dips
The time period in which you want to see how many trades have been done
