A Selection Strategy work as an alternative to Screening Filters. If you are willing to set up more complex conditions and advanced logic to filter your Screening, a Selection Strategy is what you've been looking for!
Selection Strategies, or Screening, are executed in Real-Time according to the asset’s price variation.
In order for a Strategy to be considered a Selection one, the function “Select” must be present at some point of the Strategy.
Here's an example of a Selection Strategy involving all assets in which the RSI of 10 periods is indicated as Overbuy or Oversell:
if(IFR(10) > 70) then
else if(IFR(10) < 30) then
To add any strategy you must create a new Screening Filter. Done that, instead of selecting the option “Use Filter”, select “Use Selection Strategy” and search for the Selection Strategy you wish to use. After, add the Screening.
