% Rise/Decline Strategy

Im trying to construct a % Decline type strategy which is successful in equities to move into FX.

The premace is based on riding momentum. For instance if an equity declines 20% it is more likely to continue that trend direction than turning the opposite way.

I know that TS has a "show me" type bar alert which shows a previous swing high or low (on the 1HR chart for a FX Pair a setting of 12,12 is quite effective at picking the good swings). Alternatively PRT has a zig-zag function (i dont know if TS has this i am merely thinking out loud here as to an alternative if the TS Show me alert cannot work).

is there anyone able to assist with the E-Language coding for this type of strategy.

Strategy details:

Enter position based on a % move away from a zig zag top or TS previous swing high/low (TS type indication on price). The % move could be based on for instance 0.2% X Average True Range away from the ZIG Zag Position/Swing. A stop can be placed above the previous swing high or swing low (depending on trend direction). Once a new swing has been made the stop will then move down to just above/below swing).

Instead of % of ATR - a % of Average Swing Length /Average distance between zig zag top and bottom?

What kind of assistance do you need?


Due to time constraints, please do not PM me if your question can be resolved or answered on the forum.

Need help?
1) Stop changing things. No new indicators, charts, or methods. Be consistent with what is in front of you first.
2) Start a journal and post to it daily with the trades you made to show your strengths and weaknesses.
3) Set goals for yourself to reach daily. Make them about how you trade, not how much money you make.
4) Accept responsibility for your actions. Stop looking elsewhere to explain away poor performance.
5) Where to start as a trader? Watch this webinar and read this thread for hundreds of questions and answers.

Hey Big-Mike

i pretty much require:
-Easy-Language coding assistance;
-others to brainstorm on this process to improve its effectiveness.

the strategy is to:
1)wait for a zig zag bottom (if long position).
2) enter long position if price moves:
a) 20% of ATR away from the zig zag bottom
or b) greater than 20% of the average distance from zig zag tops to bottoms (of the previous 20 periods for instance)
3) sell at 75% completion of a or b

the opposite holds true for shorting. even if its not zig zag tops and bottoms it could be pivot highs and lows for instance.
any ideas would be greatly appreciated.
