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.

Thanks, I've come to understand this now.

Just hoping someone could kindly code one as per my request in the programming section or alternatively I'm on the look out for similar automated stop strategy sold by a vendor.

I'm surprised there aren't more available in the indicator/strategy section of the forum.

The point here is that automated strategies do not always work. If any strategies are sold by a vendor, you cannot be sure whether they work or not. It is difficult to buy money.

I have coded a simple SuperTrend strategy myself, but it only makes money in trending markets and gives back that money in a sideways market. This means that it is likely that a SuperTrend strategy is only profitable when used with an appropriate trend filter.

You can also use the SuperTrend as a stop strategy (exits only) and combine it with other indicators that give you better entry signals.

Hi Fat Tails

I am not looking to use the supertrend strategy as the be all and end all of strategies to make profit. Perhaps I wasn't clear enough in the beginning.

I have a specific reversal trade setup that is based reading price action, volume profiling, order flow and cumulative delta. It's a late morning session trade that allows me here in Australia to walk away from the PC, have dinner and trail my stop until a hard target has been reached, or the atr based stop has been hit. Simple as that, the trade only comes about on a clean reversal that essentially sets up a short term mean reversion trend back up to the IB high or previous HVN, VPOC.
I will need to test it a fair amount to gauge what period/multiplier I will need.

It would be really awesome if you could kindly post the strategy to the indicator/strategy section of the forum?

Thanks a lot!
