1. Overview

The Bloodhound Auto Trader is an automated strategy that allows you to auto-trade your Bloodhound signals just like Raven or Blackbird, but much simpler.

Just use our Bloodhound statistics indicator to determine your most optimal exits & trailing stops. Then copy the settings to our auto-trader and start trading it live

The auto trader supports trading a scalp & runner and has numerous options to specify your stop loss, breakeven, trailing stop, and position sizing

 TDU Auto Trader

1.1 Define your stop loss, breakeven exit & trailing stop settings

However, with the auto trader, we made it very simple to set up your strategy by allowing you to simply specify your

  • Position sizing for your scalp & runner
  • Stop-loss
  • Break-even 
  • Target
  • Trailing stop
  • Max daily profit/loss
  • Trading sessions
  • And which days of the week do you want the auto trader to trade

 

1.2 Supports scalps & runners

The Auto trader also allows you to specify all these settings for both a scalp & runner separately. No more fussing around trying to build things in Blackbird. Just simply fill in your desired stop loss, breakeven, target, and trailing stop for both the scalp & runner and you are ready to auto-trade your bloodhound signal.

 

1.3 Use our Statistics indicator to determine the optimal stop loss & targets 

Even better.. our Bloodhound auto trader fully integrates with our Bloodhound statistics indicator. This means you can use the Bloodhound statistics indicator to determine the perfect entries & exit settings and then copy those settings in the auto trader and trade them live

 

2. Strategy settings

3.1 Template

Here you select your BloodHound template. Note that these are not included, you should build your own BloodHound templates using BloodHound from SharkIndicators

3.2 Entry Logic

Here you select which logic from your Bloodhound template should be used for entries

3.3 Exit Logic

Here you select which logic from your Bloodhound template should be used for exiting trades. Note that this optional

3.4 Trade entry

Here you can how to enter a trade. When Bloodhound generates a buy or sell signal you can choose to enter at the close of the bar which generated the signal, or in real-time, the exact moment bloodhound generates the signal

3.5 Commissions

The commissions' settings allow you to specify the commissions you normally need to pay / trade. When filling in the trade statistics will use this in all the statistics to give you more accurate results.

3.6 Max open trades

Here you can specify the maximum number of open trades at any given time. For example, let's suppose that trade is currently running and that the maximum open trades is set to 1. If then another bloodhound signal would then occur, with this trade still running, then this 2nd BloodHound signal will be ignored since there is already 1 trade open, and the max. is set to 1 as well. If the max. was set to 2 then another trade would be opened.

3.7 Exit on opposing entry

If this setting is then the indicator will close any long trades when a BloodHound short signal occurs and vice versa

4. Position Sizing settings for Scalp/Runner

Position sizing

Under position sizing, you define how much you want to risk per trade for both your scalp and your runner. If you don't want to use a runner then you can just change its setting to trade 0 fixed contracts.

There are a couple of options:

4.1 Fixed contracts / trade

With fixed contracts/trade the indicator will always open a trade using a fixed number of contracts. For example, if you set this value to 3 then every trade will be opened with 3 contracts. And if you set it to 1, every trade will be opened with 1 contract.

4.2 Fixed Amount/trade

If you want to risk a certain amount of dollars/trade then you can select this option.  For example, let's say you want to risk a maximum of $150 / trade. In that case, you select Fixed amount/trade and enter 150 here. The indicator will then calculate the number of contracts it can trade for each trade based on the size of the stop loss. This means that for every trade your maximum risk will always be $150 and the number of contracts will depend on the size of the stop-loss.

If the stop loss is too big to trade even 1 contract then the trade will be skipped since the indicator cannot open a trade with the maximum risk you defined here

4.3 Percentage % trade

If you want to risk a certain percentage of your trading capital/trade then you can select this option.  For example, let's say you want to risk a maximum of 2% / trade. In that case, you select Percentage/trade and enter 2 here. The indicator will then calculate maximum risk in $ for each trade based on the size of the stop loss, the percentage, and the account size. When it has calculated the max. amount of $ to risk on the trade it calculates how many contracts it can use for this trade.

This means that for every trade your maximum risk will always be 2% of your account and the number of contracts will depend on the size of the stop-loss.

If the stop loss is too big to trade even 1 contract then the trade will be skipped since the indicator cannot open a trade with the maximum risk you defined here

4.4 Max contracts

You might want to limit the max. of contracts the indicator can trade. Especially when you have selected a Fixed amount/trade of percentage/trade. In those cases, the indicator will calculate the number of contracts it can trade for each trade.  Now if the stop loss is very small it could end up with too many contracts

With this setting, you can set the max. the number of contracts/trade the indicator should use.

 

5. Stop loss settings

Stoploss settings

The indicator allows you to define your own stop loss.

You can define your stop loss in

  • Ticks
  • Points,
  • Amount ($)
  • ATR

When selecting ATR you can also specify the ATR period and ATR multiplier to use. 

6. Break even settings for Scalp / Runner

break even settings

 

Here you can specify if and when the stop loss should be moved to breakeven for both your scalp and runner.

You can specify your break-even point in

  • Ticks
  • Points,
  • Amount ($)
  • ATR\
  • Risk / Reward

 When selecting ATR you can also specify the ATR period and ATR multiplier to use.

You can also specify an offset (in ticks) for the break-even. For example, let's say you set your break-even to the settings above. In that case, the stop-loss will be moved to break even when your trade is in 1.5 ATR profit

Now if you set the Offset(ticks) to 1, then the stop-loss will be moved to breakeven + 1 tick when your trade is in 1.5 ATR profit

 

     When selecting ATR you can also specify the ATR period and ATR multiplier to use. 

    7. Take profit settings for Scalp/Runner

    take profit settings

    Here you can specify when to take profit for both the scalp & runner

    You can specify your take profit in

    • Ticks
    • Points,
    • Amount ($)
    • ATR
    • Risk / Reward

     When selecting ATR you can also specify the ATR period and ATR multiplier to use. 

    Note that if you don't want a fixed target, for example, because you are using a trailing stop and want your trades to be closed only when the trailing stop is hit, then you can just set your take profit to None. In that case, your trade will be closed when it hits the trailing stop ( or stop loss)

    8. Trailing stop settings for Scalp/Runner

    Trailing stop

     

    You can enable a trailing stop for both your scalp and/or your runner

    To do so you first define WHICH trailing stop you want to use. You can choose between 

    • None
    • Parabolic SAR
    • ATR
    • Chandelier Stop
    • Or the previous bar hi / low which is often used when trading Renko bars 


    Next, you define WHEN your trailing stop should be triggered/started. Here you have 2 options:

    • ATR
    • When trade is at breakeven (+ some offset)

    With the first (ATR) option, you can tell the indicator that the stop loss should get trailed by the trailing stop when the trade is in profit by a specific ATR period & multiplier you specify. For example. This allows you to start trailing your stop when your trade is in 1.5 ATR profit

    The other option is to start trailing your stop when your trade is at breakeven + some ticks. This allows you to start trailing your stops when your trade is 16 ticks in profit.

     

    9. Daily loss/profit filter

    Daily profit/loss filter

    The daily profit/loss filter will enable you to stop trading for the day when your daily profit target and/or your daily loss limit has been reached.  Use this if you want to set limits on how much you can lose or win per day

     

    10. Weekday filter

    Week day filter

    The weekday filter allows you to restrict trading to particular days of the week. When abled the indicator will only trade the days you have selected checked and won't take any trades on the other days.
