There can be several reasons why your Paper Trading bot isn't opening new trades. There are a few things you can look into:


The quickest option to check why your Paper Trading bot doesn't seem to be doing anything is to use the Troubleshooter located at the top of the Dashboard or Advanced Dashboard.


It happens that new users create too many Paper Trading bots at the beginning, causing all Paper Trading bots to be stopped. If this is the case, disable the Paper Trading bots you don't want to use via the Dashboard, Advanced Dashboard, or via your trading bot overview, and then save the Paper Trading bot you want to use again. One Explorer, Adventurer, or Hero subscription allows you to use 1 trading bot with real funds and 1 trading bot with Paper Trading funds.
