Same strategy, same asset, two different timeframes ?
It would seem that it is a problem for Multicharts to run the same strategy on two different time frames but on the same asset.
Running strategy A on 1 hour charts on AUDUSD
Running strategy A on 2 hour charts on AUDUSD
It seems that when multicharts sees an execution on the other time frame it thinks that that is related to both time frames. So if the 1 hour time frame sells its position, then if both were long then the 2 hour time frame thinks that it's position has been closed as well. Can anyone confirm or deny this? I am using Async to keep executions in MC independant from whats going on at the my broker. It seems that there are less problems with this setup...
Has anyone else had this problem? or can anyone else say if this logic makes sense? solutions?
I also want to run a strategy on two different time frames on the same asset, I found out that it coulden't generate correct results at each and every point where a long or short trade was opened.it'was not consistent. I still don't know why.
My method has a little difference though,and here is the detail, I want the tow charts system to give a long signal (and open a buy trade of couse) when MACD on both charts give out long sigals,and a short signal when MACD on both charts are short signals. Also,as we expect, there must be a rest period when MACD on the 2 charts are in different directions.You can see, this is a simple system that may fortify the trend when htere is one,and when the trend is obscure,we just waite and rest.
The problem is, when I check this trading system in tow different ways, it won't give out the same results the same asset. First I used macd indicator to make the trade on 15 min and 1hour timeframe, 15 min for data 1 chart, and h1 for data 2chart. Then I used macd indicator to make the trade on 1 hour on chart1, and 15 min for data chart2 to check the results.It is reasnable to believe that they will gice the same results, but they are different.
In case my code may have problemss, here is the code for you to check out.
I personnally thought MC is very suitable for tradings on multiple time frames,and MTF methods are highly reliable and profitable.so I'm wodering why there is so little response for this question.Am I wrong? No! So friends, please come and join this disscussion! --Thank big mike for providing this forum.
depending on your settings and code a system using the 15min chart can enter at every bar, even with the underlying 1 hour chart. This means the entry prices for the system can vary, as the close of the 15 min bar can be different than the close of a 1 hour bar.
I would guess that this is causing your different results.
