Now, you will most likely want to set up one or more Indicators for your Trade Bot. To do this, you will want to click on the plus sign (+) next to "Indicators." You will then be prompted to choose your Indicator. Once you have found your desired settings for that Indicator[s], go ahead and click "Update." If you would like to see the chart, click on the "Backtest" button. The green boxes above the chart signify "Buys" and the red boxes signify "Sells" in the backtest.
