Task: Run Trading Strategy with twsATSXL

Test to Run The Strategy Once

Click Run It Once button on the CFG Worksheet to run the trading strategy (or trading plans) located on the CORE Worksheet.

Note:
Here twsATSXL runs the trading strategy only once, which is useful for testing in some case. Continue on the next step to configure twsATSXL for continuous run.


Start The Timer to Run The Strategy

Click Start Timer button on the CFG Worksheet to run the trading strategy (or trading plans) located on the CORE Worksheet, repeatedly according the timer setting. Once the timer is started, the text on the button becomes Stop Timer indicating you can click it once again to stop the timer

The frequency that the timer uses to trigger a certain task can be configured on CFG Worksheet. Here are settings used in our sample twsATSXL spreadsheet:

# Determine how often the Timer activates runTask

Timer_Freq = 0:01:03        # hh:mm:ss (0:00:00 to 23:59:59)

# Determine how often it pulls AB Messages (on the MSG sheet)
# NOTE: MSG_Pull_Freq must be shorter than Ticker_Proc_Freq

MSG_Pull_Freq = 0:00:55     # hh:mm:ss (0:00:00 to 23:59:59)

# Determine how often it processes Tickers (on the CORE sheet)

Ticker_Proc_Freq = 0:01:50  # hh:mm:ss (0:00:00 to 23:59:59)
