  • Auto Trading Strategies

    The AT Pro platform from City Index is designed to help you make the most of your trading, even when you're unable to watch the markets as closely as you would like. AT Pro offers exclusive access to a suite of tools to help you plan and execute your trades, including free access to over one hundred auto-trading strategies.

    The auto-trading system automatically places trades on your behalf whenever a trade signal is generated by your selected strategy. You can use the strategies without the trading function switched on to see trade alert signals and place trades manually, should you wish to. By switching on the strategies the platform will execute trades on your behalf as long as the platform stays open and connected to the market.

    Why Back-Test a Strategy?

    Back-testing is a vital part of preparing to use an auto-trading strategy.
