If you don't have any great strategies to automate it's not a problem; you can still get going and easily try out trade automation with Tradeworks.
We recommend that you start off by diving straight into the My Strategies section on the Dashboard where you will find a number of preset Template Strategies. Click on one of them to see how it is designed and thereby learn which building blocks are required to complete a strategy.
Try tweaking it but changing the values of the different rules around and run a backtest to see how the strategy would have performed historically. Once you are happy with the resilts, you can try it out on paper trading in a demo account of your choice.
