Create a customized event setup

  1. To create a custom strategy with specific criteria to match your trading style, click Event Setup Library, then Build a Custom Event Setup.

  2. This will open the event setup window. Click the Select Criteria dropdown menu to view the criteria by category or implication.

    Categories include classic patterns, moving averages, and oscillators.

  3. In this example, we’ll choose from the gaps category, and select Gap Up. As you can see, some information appears in the right panel, explaining what your selected criteria indicate. To confirm, click Add Criteria.

  4. For this example, we’ll choose inside bar (bullish) and flag (bullish). With certain criteria, you can add additional details to narrow your selection. Once you’re happy with the setup, click Next. You’ll be prompted to provide the details for your setup, including name, strategy type, and trading style. Once finished, click Save, and then Ok if you want to add this event setup to your radar.
