Box synergies

Runbot is divided into different boxes, each with a specific purpose, which can be managing the risk of your strategy, creating indicators, managing rules on when to enter or exit a trade, or other information about your backtests and results.

Each box is independant, however they are still connected through what we call "signals". Signals can be created from one box, and be benefited by another one.

If you create a "long signal" in the Indicators Box, you can take advantages of this signal in the Entry in position rules Box, as an example, with a rule such as "There is a minimum of 1 Long Signals", the strategy will enter a long position once the Indicator box triggered a "long signal" from the indicators your previously configured.

There are many different types of signals, you can see here the full list and details.

Triggers Boxes allows you to take profit of all the signals triggered by your general strategy, they will help you to enter, exit, a position or increase/decrease your sizings.
