Buy-Zone Problems

Postby xtremeforex » Fri Jun 03, 2011 10:22 pm

Hi Tro,

I have now been profiting quite steadily with two strategies.

One is a high-frequency trade-entry strategy, that literally enters hundreds of trades a day.

This is my main strategy because the Buy-Zone (my secondary strategy) has a few problems which I am going to discuss.

Some of these problems - could - be errors of in own understanding.

I would prefer to call the BuyZone a Horizontal-Line strategy, because of the way it utilizes price action with horizontal lines.

I have automated BuyZone to see it perform over long-term backtesting and it performs - decently -.

My analysis has shown that one of the key components for buyzone winning in the long-term is the adjustment of variable TP's, constant SL and a Trailing stop. It can NOT win with a fixed TP.

However, it is unclear as to - when - and by - how much - these TP's and Trailing stops should be adjusted. When the buyZone fails, it is often when a trade was in profit but TURNED into a loss. Is this why you discourage using BuyZone in an automated format? Because the Human can take profit - when possible without the complexities of AI-based TP's?

Thank you for your support.

TP is usually take profit and SL is stop loss. Good luck on your journey.
Is price closing higher or lower than something? Simple yet powerful question. ..MO
