Trading Blox™ Builder is a Windows-based software application that runs simulations of trading rules over historical end-of-day or intraday Futures, Stock, ETF, Mutual fund, or Forex price data, and determines the trades that those rules would have entered and the performance they would have exhibited. Trading Blox Builder features excellent testing and charting features and is equipped with the Blox Basic programming language to build and script custom systems.
Drag and Drop System Editor
It contains the rules for many well-known trading systems and allows users to change, test, and improve upon the specific input parameter values of the original system. Once a particular combination of parameter values has been historically tested and observed to produce acceptable results, then that same system can be traded live. With the click of a menu, Trading Blox™ Builder generates the next bar’s entries, exits, and position sizes for you. The Order Generation process can also be run in a batch process, and scheduled with Windows Scheduler.
Flexible Parameter Driven Testing
Each system supplied by Trading Blox™ Builder has many input parameters whose values can be freely changed by the user. Some of these parameters have nothing to do with the system rules themselves, such as test start date and end date-your tests can span the last three years or the last thirty-or whether futures, stocks, or forex are to be the focus of your test. Many input parameters, though, are essential components of the system rules.
Easy to use Blox Editor
By default, Trading Blox™ Builder is set up with the parameter values that reflect a good starting point for testing each of the supplied systems. In addition, Trading Blox™ Builder lets you to take those original values and improve upon them, making it easy for you to create your own unique trading systems. It also provides the comfort and security that come from experiencing firsthand how those systems performed across various historical periods.

You can then drag and drop these Blox into a System to create virtually any strategy. You can create new systems, and include/remove or reuse any available Blox.
Blox are collections of Permanent and Instrument Variables, Parameters, Indicators, and Scripts. You can create a variety of types of Blox, including:
- Portfolio Manager
