Moving Average Daily

Moving Average Daily

At this stage ProRealtime doesn’t have multi timeframe capabilities. However one easy possibility is to use the moving average of the daily timeframe with the options of DOpen, DHigh, DLow, DClose and that’s what this indicator enables you to do. You can select the number of periods ie. Days: number of periods/days (please note there’s a limit depending on the timeframe you use this on and there’s a difference between PRT and IG data periods) open/high/low/close, etc… If you are going to use this in a live trading account you will need to set: DEFPARAM Preloadbars = Here is the table of how much Preloadbars you will need depending how many periods you want to look back.  The column max days shows the maximum of what you can set Preload to.

As an example of you are using a 10 minute timeframe the maximum DEFPARAM Preloadbars = 5000 // maximum is 5000 and this is equal to the moving average of 35 days.

DEFPARAM Preloadbars =
60 24 5000
Minutes bars per hour bars per day max days
1 60 1440 3
5 12 288 17
10 6 144 35
15 4 96 52
30 2 48 104
60 1 24 208

You should find this indicator useful if you are trading mean reversion system and want to make an entry a timeframe less than the daily while using the daily moving average as the mean.

REMINDER: if you want the indicator to appear in the Price section of the chart, you must add it by clicking on the spanner icon on the little Price tab in the Price window.

    Thanks a lot, a lot of people will find it useful!

    About customclose of the daily OHLC, you could have compute them this way: (totalprice for instance)

    LMA = ((DOpen(i)+DHigh(i)+DLow(i)+DClose(i))/4) + LMA

    Unfortunately the PRT is unreliable. 

    I made a simple 7 day moving average crosses over 30 day moving average but
    Pro Realtime opens position even though there’s no cross over.

    I tried to provide a screenshot but I keeping getting a HTTP error.

      Did you change trading hours or weekends data of the tested instruments? Calculate the daily moving average like the author do it in this code means a lot of preloaded bars, did you adapt this parameter correctly? 

    • David • 185 days ago #

      Nicolas, I wrote the code and I have DEFPARAM Preloadbars = 3000 on m60 so that’s plenty of preloadbars.

      As far as I know I didn’t change the weekend data of FX. But the drawn moving average lines do not cross many times but the position open and they should not open. So no one else is having this issue?

      I am running the Demo of 10.3 via IG so maybe that’s having an issue?

      How do you call this indicator in you trading strategy code? Did you make a CALL? Have you tried to GRAPH the returned variables of the indicators while backtesting?

    • David • 184 days ago #

      I’m using the call function. I checked again and it seems okay now on Demo and Live testing. Luckily I took a screen shot otherwise I wouldn’t believe that there was an entry issue as per my initial comment. 

  3. David • 150 days ago #

    Nicolas I’ve looked at it again and there’s a problem. 

    As an example here’s a simple cross over system and you can see the entry and exit is not at the cross over. It’s even worse if you use <> for the daily moving averages for the BUY. I made 2 instances of the indicator and Call the indicators Moving Average Daily with DHigh and DLow. I’m still having HTTP error when trying to upload a screen shot. Here’s a screenshot https://ibb.co/na7LDv 

    I look forward to hearing what results you have Nicolas. 

     

    // Definition of code parameters
    DEFPARAM CumulateOrders = False // Cumulating positions deactivated
    
    // Conditions to enter long positions
    indicator1 = CALL "Moving Average Daily HIGH"[14]
    indicator2 = CALL "Moving Average Daily LOW"[50]
    c1 = (indicator1 CROSSES OVER indicator2)
    
    IF c1 THEN
    BUY 1 CONTRACT AT MARKET
    ENDIF
    
    // Conditions to exit long positions
    indicator3 = CALL "Moving Average Daily HIGH"[14]
    indicator4 = CALL "Moving Average Daily LOW"[50]
    c2 = (indicator3 CROSSES UNDER indicator4)
    
    IF c2 THEN
    SELL AT MARKET
    ENDIF

      You’ll need to preload bars to get the good calculations of you indicators. I did not test it myself though. 

  4. David • 150 days ago #

    Nicolas I tried
    DEFPARAM Preloadbars = 5000

    And still the same drawn output of entries/exits not at the drawn Cross Over  around 2 days earlier than the drawn Cross Over /Cross Under.
