Enhance your decision making using the right charts and indicators
Tradesignal’s charts and indicators provide energy traders with quick and easy access to historical prices and powerful tools for technical analysis to help them spot trading ideas and systematically execute strategies.
Stay on top of changing trends
The Tradesignal charting tool provides an alert function to inform you of any change in trend making it easier to stay on top of market changes. The candlestick chart allows energy traders to view overbought or oversold zones (in accordance with RSI).
Systematic use of season effects
Energy markets exhibit noticeable seasonal behaviours with historical data providing invaluable insight into future projections. This charting tool highlights these trends by showing historical seasonal average (blue line) with bands representing the max or min historical price seen for that particular day.
Automatically find candlestick chart patterns
The chart uses an indicator that automatically finds candlestick chart patterns. As soon as a particular pattern occurs outside of the Bollinger Bands, a symbol highlights the respective candle. Tradesignal recognizes over 80 candlestick patterns and alerts you in real time.
Point and figure charts with automatic interpretation
Point and figure charts allow traders and analysts to visualise price movements over nonlinear time intervals, providing an additional perspective for trend analysis. This chart type features special indicators to automatically add trend lines, support and resistance levels as well as price targets
Don’t miss opportunities
Watchlists are a powerful tool that allows you to effectively and simply view market activity while saving valuable screen real estate. Alerts can be set up to notify a trader of potential trading opportunities and custom workspaces allowing a user to quickly switch between products on a preset selection of charts.
Analyse your trading strategies prior to trading
Tradesignal allows traders to apply a vast range of trading strategies, indicators and views to enhance decision making.
The ability to decide your entry and exit trading and investment decisions based on systematic strategic information, allows traders to effectively time and manage their decisions. Access to a myriad of out-of the-box modules allows users to backtest scenarios on individual instruments to entire portfolios using historical data. Immediate performance reporting allows you to assess profitability, risk and a host of metrics on your strategies before trading. In addition, all predefined parameters of a strategy can each be modified and individual modules can be combined with each other, creating very powerful strategies all done via the drag and drop functionality.
Quickly visualise the breakout strategy and integrate profit target view
The breakout strategy allows you to view long or short positions based on the current trend. The chart also displays when your predefined profit is reached, thus when the position will then be closed.
Utilise systematic portfolio management to assist in decision making
The Tradesignal solution allows you to apply trading strategies to portfolios, with multiple views allowing you to easily visualise the equity curve, the portfolio position and the P&L of each position all in real time.
Here is a example sector ETF portfolio (top left), the constituents can be added and subtracted at will and the portfolio strategy will automatically update. The equity curve of the entire portfolio, based on the outcome of the applied strategy, is shown below the list.
Analyse data and make clearer decisions using back-testing optimisation
Take advantage of the optimisation feature to optimise and backtest strategies. Optimise the appropriate stop size, a price target, the input period or any parameters required for the indicators. With 50+ configurable metrics including drawdown, Sharpe ratio and profit factor you can perform a detailed assessment of the quality of your strategy.
There are various types of optimisation available, so large amounts of data can be analysed quickly and effectively. The example below shows a simple crossover strategy based on two moving averages with different period lengths. The optimiser then runs through all possible combinations of the parameters, over a user defined range.
How Robust Is Your Trading Strategy?
Optimisation results are displayed in an easy to read color heatmap providing you with an efficient and comprehensive overview to determine which combination of parameters generate positive or negative results allowing you to make an informed decision about the robustness of your trading strategy.
The Performance Report
Having completed the backtesting and optimisation process, you are then provided with a detailed performance report which depicts a vast array of metrics relating to the optimised strategy, such as drawdown & return on account and the Sharpe ratio. Additionally, you will be able to assess and adjust the effectiveness of your stops and price targets using the list of all trades.
This performance report shows the metrics on the left and the profit or loss in relation to the drawdown on the right.
