The main idea around which we have developed our automated trading solution is to allow our users not to have to get involved. Indeed, we know how emotionally impactful and time consuming trading can be.
However, you will always be in control of your funds, which is why you will still be able to open and close positions manually.
To do so, please note that you must uncheck the Bot only option in order to execute trades by yourself.
This will allow the trading bot to recognize your status and execute strategies according to your choice. Otherwise, side effects may occur.
Also note that the performance of your own trading strategies will be added to the performance of the trading robots you have chosen to copy, and may even decrease it.
However, you should be aware that if you open positions on the same pairs that the bot uses, this will cause the bot to go out of order. For example, if you close positions taken by the bot without the bot making the decision, it will consider the position still open.
The bot takes a Long position on 1BTC; you decide to close the position manually, your position goes to 0BTC. When the bot decides to close the position of 1BTC, in reality it will open a Short of 1BTC.
To activate the Bot only option, go to your Dashboard, click on See details and then go to the Allocation tab:
