TS strategies I found on the net/magazines/etc

Postby blr121970 » Sun Jun 11, 2006 8:07 pm

I would like to have this thread where I will post all strategies that I found on the net or other places.

This is so that I will not clutter the forum with one strategy per thread.

Hope Michal will be OK with this.

The following web site has many TS strategies
(and for other applications as well):

XEA Trade

I liked the Williams 19 by Larry Williams strategy:

This is the RSI Pivot system originally posted by Orc and then
modified by eKam on the TS forum. Gives some interesting results on @ES/@ER2.

Explanation of the strategy (as explained by eKam, copied verbatim):


From reading the code, apparently this indicator plots two kinds of buy
signals. Pivot-sB is a "significant buy" (based on divergence), whereas
Pivot-B is a normal buy (based solely on RSI being "too low").

It seems that Pivot-B has lower reliability for a counter trend signal
during strong trend, whereas both are useful during a range bound
market.

This code is obviously a stripped down version of something more
complete. I sure hope that that's why it does not plot exit signals, or to
plot short signals. Obviously it was posted here in the hope that you will
go visit their web site and buy something, but the code is educational
nevertheless. I will probably use it to build my own complete RSI based
buy/sell indicator.

Note that being an oscilator, traditional use of RSI gives counter trend
signals based completely on absolute values of RSI below which to go
long (and vice versa for shorts), doing so is not a very reliable signal
during a strong trend. Instead of relying on a fixed value to call an RSI
reading "too low" to issue buy signals, this indicator subtracts from 60
an adaptive threshold value based on a multiplier value of 1.68 from the
average RSI value of the last 50 bars.

Great!

Why shouldn't I be OK with this? :) These forums are set up so that Avery and other honest people don't have to fall in line with TS forum police any more.

Indeed, there won't ever be any forum police here :) The only users that will get into trouble here are nasty spammers. :smt071

It would be great if you posted a brief description along with every link to a strategy you post here in this thread.

The following URL has a lot of indicators and systems, but unfortunately for MetaTrader only:

http://www.lightpatch.com/forex/mt_yahoo/

Can someone using MetaTrader please try out a few of the systems there, like for example:

ASC++ Expert

and let me know if there are any systems worthwhile so that I can port them to TS?

OK now for the world-famous :lol: TTM squeeze strategy.

Explanation of Indicator/Strategy:

For an explanationof the TTM squeeze (and trend) indicator and strategy
please review the following videos (WARNING: you will need the Macromedia Flash Plugin):

CBOT seminar by Hubert Senters (the voice in the previous videos)

Note: The strategy is not perfect - because it does not exit in certain conditions mentioned by Hubert
in the 5minsqueezechecklistchicago video - but it is a starting point nevertheless.

Strategy : Thomas Stridsman's Medians On The Move
Explanation: See Active Trader, March 2006, p. 28

Traders' Studio code by Mr. Stridsman:

Code: Select all

Sub AtmMarch (LookBack, DaysInTrade As Integer, LossMult As Double)
'Copyright (C), 2005: Thomas Stridsman
'Created with Traders' Studio, Version 1.3.4

Dim MyArray As Array
Dim Counter, ArraySize, ArrayMidPoint As Integer
Dim MinMove, EP, HC As Double
Dim ATR, MyTypical As BarArray(50)

MinMove = GetActiveMinMove()
ATR = Average(TrueRange, LookBack, 0)

ArraySize = LookBack * 2
ReDim(MyArray, ArraySize)
For Counter = 0 To (LookBack - 1) Step 1
  MyArray[Counter * 2 + 0] = Close[Counter]
  MyArray[Counter * 2 + 1] = Close[Counter]
Next
NumSort(MyArray)

ArrayMidPoint = ArraySize / 2

MyTypical = (MyArray[ArrayMidPoint-1] + MyArray[ArrayMidPoint]) /2
'SUBSTITUTE WITH THIS TO RUN MA SYSTEM: MyTypical = Average(Close, LookBack)

If Close < MyTypical Then
  Buy("Buy", 1, MyTypical + MinMove, Stop, Day)
End If

If MarketPosition = +1 Then
  EP = GetEntryPrice(0)
  HC = Highest(Close, BarsSinceEntry, 0)
  ExitLong("XL-L", "Buy", 1, Max(EP, HC) - LossMult * ATR - MinMove, Stop, Day)
  If BarsSinceEntry >= DaysInTrade Then
    ExitLong("XL-T", "Buy", 1, 0, Market, Day)
  End If
End If

End Sub
