The Stratmaster Strategy File (SFF) is an digital file which contains the entire strategy rules from entry requirements, adjustments and exit conditions. As the name implies, the SSF is based on a proprietary format which is recognizable to Stratmaster Server. As many of strategy developers may have created names of their strategies and created a PDF file which provides the rules in plain English sentences ie. “SELL half of the 20 Delta SPX PUT” and the SSF is the translated version for running the strategy with Stratmaster. In order not to confuse the English version of the strategy file from the SFF, all SSF are prefix with ‘SSF’ prior to the file name. Also, the name is slightly changed from the original strategy name ie. ‘BULL BUTTERFLY.PDF’ strategy may have ‘SSF_BULLFLY’ in SSF format.
All the strategies listed below are successfully translated into Stratmaster Strategy Format (SSF). Click on the SFF link below for details for more information.
