Fat Tails, created the simple sample reverse strategy in Strategy Builder exactly as you have posted here to confirm amaSupertrend11 would work in a strategy. It compiled fine but Strategy Analyzer would not take any trades with it. I was not expecting it to be a winning trade but at least one in a year back test.
SO I was going to ask for help here. Then I realized how dumb I was to think that the trend would be less than zero when it is based on price.

So now it works - not a winning strategy but it does take trades. Any chance you would post a strategy builder created one that is at least marginally profitable? Or for that matter any strategy marginally profitable. Thanks for your continued support.

I only do a few postings here compared to what you have done. So I did not use "@" before your name because I expect you get way too many emails telling you've been mentioned.

Thanks again.


The SuperTrend strategy by itself is not profitable. It makes money during a trending market, but gives that money back during a range bound market.

Also the SuperTrend is not an ideal candidate for entry timinig, as it triggers entry signals rather late. I have only used it as a trend filter and/or for exit timing.

Even though this is a bit off the topic, is it possible to revise the SuperTrendU11 code to expose more data, such as Bullish Upclose/Downclose or Bearish Upclose/DownClose, to Bloodhound?

The SuperTrendU11 exposes the trend information as a public Series<double>. Trend[0] = +1 stands for a bullish trend, while Trend[0] = -1 stands for a bearish trend. This information can be directly accessed via Bloodhound.

For the information upclose / downclose you do not need the SuperTrendU11, as you may check this directly within Bloodhound.
