Welcome, Guest!

This forum was established to help traders (especially futures traders) by openly sharing indicators, strategies, methods, trading journals and discussing the psychology of trading.

We are fundamentally different than most other trading forums:
  • We work extremely hard to keep things positive on our forums.
  • We do not tolerate rude behavior, trolling, or vendor advertising in posts.
  • We firmly believe in openness and encourage sharing. The holy grail is within you, it is not something tangible you can download.
  • We expect our members to participate and become a part of the community. Help yourself by helping others.

You'll need to register in order to view the content of the threads and start contributing to our community. It's free and simple, and we will never resell your private information.

DM strategy

I have an idea for a strategy
It uses DM which comes with NinjaTrader
There are 2 values +D and -D
At each bar close the strategy will calculate (+D)-(-D) taking both absolute values for +D and -D
For example
So the strategy will calculate 17.23-15.68 and we will call this value D
Of course if -D=22.16 then D=17.23-22.16
I'm sure you get the idea by now
Whenever the strategy starts, it will calculate D after the close of the price bar
For bar 1 we have D1
For bar 2 we have D2
For bar 3 we have D3
And so on
To go long the value D has to be going up 2 price bars in a row and to to go short the value D has to be going down 2 price bars in a row
This is why when the strategy first starts, it will calculate D for 3 bars first and if D3>D2>D1 then it enters long position and if D3<D2<D1 then it enters short position
There is no target/stoploss/breakeven
The strategy will reverse on 2 consecutive D's going the other way
If it is long and D goes down in value for 2 price bars in a row then it will reverse short
If it is short and D goes up in value for 2 price bars in a row then it will reverse long
Sorry if it is complicated
Please let me know what you think
The strategy will always look back 3 price bars where the current D is D(n)
If D(n)>D(n-1)>D(n-2), it will enter long at market
If D(n)<D(n-1)<D(n-2), it will enter short at market
The strategy will reverse if the opposite condition applies
