3. Test your strategy

You should test your strategy before using real funds. OctoBot offers two ways to do it:

  • A simulation mode: using this mode, OctoBot will simulate trades using the exact same process as with the real trading mode.
  • A backtesting feature: it’s the process of testing a strategy’s performances on past data. It uses recorded data of cryptocurrency or stock markets.
