How Do cBots Work?

Think of cBots as robot traders that you can customize to perform all sorts of operations based on various technical analysis signals.

In more technical terms, a cBot is a C# class with customizable parameters and methods. You can fully define its behavior including what it does on start-up, on encountering certain market conditions, and on close.

cBots can also perform actions not specifically related to trading such as creating new files on your local machine. As you gain familiarity with C# and .NET, you can apply your knowledge to create advanced extensions with complex workflows.

Can I Test cBots Before I Use Them?

You can backtest cBots within cTrader Automate on real trading data. We define how backtesting works in a separate section.
