Believe it or not, your default Sample MA crossover is in the class that does the best with these types of markets. High volatility markets favor trend following systems, low volatility markets favor mean reversal / range arbitrage systems.

You wouldn't want to use it as is most likely, but drop it in your market replay and test a few dozen settings and you will find just about everything works. In practice I would recommend using different entry and exit order types, but generally the idea of a trend following system is what you want in markets with large trends like this.

Good luck!

Ian

In the analytical world there is no such thing as art, there is only the science you know and the science you don't know. Characterizing the science you don't know as "art" is a fools game.
