Welcome to futures.io.

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.

I understand. It would be great if you code without implied time frame. Most signals are not time dependent anyways

the signal is correct following your rules write below in the previous post. I test the code with different tf but the strategy is not completed because the performance report is very bad.

Like I told you if you want copy of strategy I need your code to validate it first. Once everything good to go. I'll give copy and you will understand why your test give terrible result

Sure.

Long Entry: Buy Market when close of candle cross above Lower Bollinger Band
Long Exit: Sell Market when close of candle cross below Higher Bollinger Band

Short Entry : Sell Market when close of candle cross below Higher Bollinger Band
SHORT Exit: Buy Market when close of candle cross above Lower Bollinger Band

I think this is what you are looking for:


inputs:
Length( 20 ),
NumDevs( 2 ) ;
variables:
UpperBand( 0 ),
LowerBand( 0 );

UpperBand = BollingerBand( Close, Length, NumDevs );
LowerBand = BollingerBand( Close, Length, -NumDevs );

condition1 = CurrentBar > 1 and Close crosses over UpperBand;
if condition1 then

Buy ( "BB_LE" ) next bar at market;

condition2 = CurrentBar > 1 and Close crosses under LowerBand;
if condition2 then

Sell Short ( "BB_SE" ) next bar at market;

if (MarketPosition = 1) then
begin
if (Close crosses under UpperBand) then sell ("BB_LX") next bar at market;
end;

if (MarketPosition = -1) then
begin
if (Close crosses over LowerBand) then buytocover ("BB_SX") next bar at market;
end;


However, I don't think it can profitable with such simple rules, in any timeframe. It would be too easy.
