Hi anagami & cory

thanks for the information you gave here, all appreciated. I shall be digging deeper into using DMA's for the non-range trade setups... seems it has some legs indeed..!

I shall update when I have played a bit more and got some settings/timeframes that seem to work for me.

Again many thanks
Bry

Yah, you're welcome. If you end up trading with it, post some trades.

I have a strategy built on nothing but a displaced moving average. It's doing pretty well overall. It isn't as good as my other 2 strategies but it's working. I'm using it on CL with a 4 tick BetterRenko chart. I settled on an EMA(SMA(Median, 45),34) with a displacement of +6 bars. It's a stop and reverse system where the entries are the cross of the 2 moving averages. I did a lot of testing to come up with those settings for the period I trade but they are working. I haven't tried the way @perryg described but will do so.

By the way, I like using Median pricetype because it smooths the line a bit.

Hi MWinfrey

Thanks, sounds like you tested a fair amount to get those settings - Do those settings apply on any timeframe?

Cheers
Bry

not necessarily...As you said I've done a fair amount of testing to get those settings for a 4 tick betterrenko brick. I spent no time testing other size bricks because I use the 4 tick brick almost exclusively. Just so you know, I tested over 2 years of historic data and almost 2000 trades to come up with those settings. Also, variations of those settings work as well. I don't remember what those settings are but I remember there is a relatively wide range of settings that work.

You're welcome...Also, I think I failed to make this clear. I tested for the times that I trade which are 8-11 am central time for CL. I only trade those times because that's what I personally want to do. Thought I'd mention that because CL outside of those times CL behaves differently.

Just for clarification: Is this the way you set it up?

Thanks for sharing!
