Trading Strategy Wizard – Templates

This screen shows the trading strategy templates available for use. Trading strategy templates are preconfigured trading strategies that allow you to create a trading strategy quickly without having to know or worry about all the details of creating one from scratch.
(Power User only) Power User versions of NeuroShell Trader allow the ability to mix and match multiple time frame trading strategies in a chart, indicators, prediction or even other trading strategies.
To Select the prediction frequency, choose one of the options shown:

  • Same frequency as chart – When selected, the trading strategy will be the same frequency as the current chart and will change frequencies with the chart if you change the underlying chart frequency.
  • Chart independent frequency ‘ When selected, the trading strategy will be the frequency that is selected in the frequency dropdown to the right and will not change frequencies if you change the underlying frequency of the chart.

Select the trading strategy template you wish to use:

  • To select an existing trading strategy template:
  1. Select the desired template from the list.

  • To create a trading strategy from scratch
  1. Select (No Template) located at the top of the list.

(Power User only) Power User versions of NeuroShell Trader allow backtesting and optimizing multiple templates in bulk using the same date, cost, position sizing, position scaling and optimization parameters. To backtest or optimize more than one template at a time, simply select multiple templates from the template list. When multiple templates are selected, the inputs sets are different, so the wizard will skip the inputs page and go directly to the parameters page. The default trading strategy parameters will be the parameters of the first template selected in the template list, however you can choose to modify the default dates, costs and optimization parameters before backtesting or optimizing.

When you are satisfied with the template (Power User only) and frequency the trading strategy will use, press the Next button to proceed to the next wizard screen.


  • It should be understood that trading can result in losses, and that past performance of a trading system is no guarantee of future performance.
