AUTOCLOSE is automated risk control software, designed for individual traders, groups of traders
and proprietary trading firms that use Sterling Trader Pro platform. Promotional rate of $60/month.
AUTOCLOSE works via STERLING TRADER PRO API.

AUTOCLOSE software is designed to execute orders depending on pre-defined parameters. This program you can set so if any positive position above a defined amount goes negative, it will market out. If any position loses X amount, it markets out. If a total account loses X amount, it markets out. These are just a few of its features. The AUTOCLOSE program has been in use for over eight years and has met with great success. Traders have used the AUTOCLOSE program to become more financially successful and better at trading, and the AUTOCLOSE program continues to be used in financial institutions around the U.S.

AUTOCLOSE is a proprietary software program designed to work seamlessly with the STERLING TRADER PRO platform.

FROM NOW ON -- NO RISK MANAGER IS NEEDED. ALL YOUR TRADERS’ POSITIONS WILL BE COVERED AUTOMATICALLY.

We are system engineers that provide Cy Group with automation tools and API systems for all their traders. Cy Group is a successful propriety trading firm that works with members and subscribers to further prop trading and raise profit margins. The AUTOCLOSE project started in 2004 to help automate risk management for the Sterling trading platform. This program helps automate the risk management and helps maximize traders' profits, while removing human emotion from trading.

AUTOCLOSE works via Sterling trader and in conjunction with Sterling direct access. AUTOCLOSE leverages the STS laser, singularity laser, and Laser Trading Platform to mitigate risk and remove human emotion from trading. In doing so, this program has also received many positive reviews from different proprietary trading groups from around the world.

We have our traders’ needs as our top priority. If any trader were allowed to remove 2 of his worst days from his PNL, this trader would most likely be a very profitable trader. This program automates this emotion by limiting the loss to a set amount every day, so that a trader will never have a worst day again.

There is no need for additional servers; AUTOCLOSE runs through the API, and, according to your specified parameters, it will manage your positions for you in your Sterling Trader Pro platform.


To manage all your accounts you just need to:

  1. Connect all your group trading accounts to one Sterling Trader Pro account
  2. Start Sterling Trader Pro with connected accounts
  3. Start AUTOCLOSE software
  4. Add your accounts (can be done by two different ways):
    a) Press “Actions” > “Accounts”, than in “Add/Edit Account’s data” form fill “Account” (sterling trader pro account login), and fill “Description”(description of a trader, anything) , by pressing “Add Account” button, you will see account in accounts list. (all data will be saved in account.txt file)
    b) Setting up account.txt file where all accounts starting parameters are stored
  5. Set “MAX LOSS” to each account. AUTOCLOSE calculate Gross P&L by default, if you want that certain account or all of them should be covered by NET P&L you need to set “Share’s Fee”
  6. You can set the type of action to do after reaching certain loss in “Max Loss type” menu: a) Message only – message will appear to inform risk manager.
    b) Close all – all positions will be covered by market price.
    c) Close negative – only negative positions will be covered, if positive positions come to negative they will be covered too.
  7. You can set certain max profit value in box “High”( for example: 1000), then set “% of High” (for example: 50), then set “% of High type” ( for example: close all)
    It means that after reaching Real Profit of $1000, closing algorithm starts to work.
    Then trader reaches $1200 of Real Profit and, for example, start to lose.
    AUTOCLOSE will close all positions after losing 50% from highest profit point $1200
  8. “Negative Sum” means max negative real and unreal sum (in $). “Negative Sum” calculates only account’s negative Real and Unreal traders. After reaching this “Negative Sum” value, account will be blocked, negative positions will be covered.
  9. “Symbol Max Loss” - max loss per every symbol. For example value of 50 means, after reaching $50 loss (in any symbol) position will be covered.
  10. “Symbol High” value that starts “Symbol % of High” algorithm. For example “Symbol High” =50, and “Symbol % of high” =10 means that after reaching Unreal Profit (in any symbol, in any position) more then $50, algorithm starts and cover position 10% from Maximum Unreal profit.
