Boost Your Trading Flexibility with AlgoTest’s Lazy Leg


AlgoTest, an intuitive algo-trading platform, is excited to introduce the Lazy Leg feature, designed to provide traders with greater flexibility in adjusting their positions. This innovative feature aims to enhance your trading strategy by allowing for dynamic and conditional re-entries.

Flexibility in Trading

The Lazy Leg feature enables conditional re-entry of trades based on predefined criteria. This allows traders to set specific conditions for re-entering trades when certain market conditions are met, offering a significant advantage in trade management.

Example of a Strategy with Lazy Leg

Let’s imagine a scenario where your initial stop-loss is hit. With the Lazy Leg feature, you can set a new leg to execute with different parameters, such as a wider stop-loss or a different entry point, once the initial conditions are triggered. This flexibility ensures that your trading strategy can adapt to changing market conditions without manual intervention.

Here’s a practical example:

  1. Entry Time: 10:30 AM
  2. Exit Time: 3:00 PM
  3. Initial Setup:
    • Sell a call option with a premium of 150.
    • Set a stop-loss at 60% (i.e., 240).
  4. Re-entry Condition:
    • If the stop-loss hits, re-enter by selling a new call option at 125, but only if the price reduces by 20%.
    • Set a new stop-loss for this leg at 30%.

This strategy aims to handle market reversals intelligently using the Lazy Leg feature, allowing your trading to adapt seamlessly to market movements.

Benefits of Flexibility

  • Better Trade Management: Optimized strategies by fine-tuning positions dynamically.
  • Responsive Trading: More effective responses to market movements, reducing adverse impacts and maximizing potential gains.
  • Sophisticated Strategies: Implement strategies with greater precision and control.
