Welcome to

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.

TGSectorSelector Strategy- need help refining


I observed that nearly every day the market has a favored sector. On an up trending day this sector usually continues to outperform the S&P nicely. I have begun coding up a new trading system that takes advantage of this.

I have broken up the logic into the following sections:

Don't trade on the weekends
Don't enter a trade in the afternoon, etc.

General Direction of the market... try to identify trending days

Identify Sector:
Using spyders find the sector which is outperforming

Entry timing

Exit Strategy:
Close out position

My code is attached. Right now it looses money and does not really include proper trade management. I liked reading and seeing how other code has been collaborated on. I am looking for collaborators / general feedback with ideas for the sections above.
