Breakout Failures DAX 5m

Breakout Failures DAX 5m

This is a simple strategy, just an idea that seems to work. No MoneyManagement or Position Size. Optimized for DAX 5 minutes.

It looks for breakouts in Donchian Channel for going in the opposite direction, trying to catch breaout failures so kind of mean reversion system. There is no Stop, when the losses reach 10xATR it changes (“flip”) direction to catch the trend that seems to be forming. Also finish tradings at 20:30, kind of time stop with no overnight.

Donchian channel indicator (should be set as a new indicator)

    Thanks Nicolas for adding the indicator, I somehow thougt it was one of the default indicators 🙂

      The one you used is not, that’s why I added it. What is the timezone for your DAX instrument please? While testing it, I did not get exactly the same results even if it was not bad at all.

    My timezone is UTC+00:00… and I think that´s the backtest timezone

    Thanks for the idea. Personally I don’t like to enter trades without a hard stop and also I don’t like to trade the DAX outside the official kassa times – because the spread is then wider than 1p.

    So my modified code looks like this:

    // System parameters
    DEFPARAM CumulateOrders = False
    DEFPARAM PRELOADBARS = 20
    DEFPARAM FLATBEFORE = 090000
    DEFPARAM FLATAFTER = 180000
    STOPPER = 100
    // Condiciones de entrada
    myUpperband, myLowerband, ignored = CALL “Donchian (canal)”[8]
    c1 = close myUpperband

    // Conditions for Entry of Long Positions
    IF c1 AND NOT ONMARKET THEN
    BUY 1 CONTRACTS AT MARKET
    SET STOP $LOSS STOPPER
    ELSIF SHORTONMARKET AND (CLOSE-TRADEPRICE) > FlipPosition THEN
    BUY 1 CONTRACTS AT MARKET
    SET STOP $LOSS STOPPER
    ENDIF

    // Conditions for Entry of Short Positions
    IF c2 AND NOT ONMARKET THEN
    SELLSHORT 1 CONTRACTS AT MARKET
    SET STOP $LOSS STOPPER
    ELSIF LONGONMARKET AND (CLOSE-TRADEPRICE) < -FlipPosition THEN
    SELLSHORT 1 CONTRACTS AT MARKET
    SET STOP $LOSS STOPPER
    ENDIF

    // Loss, Profit
    //SET STOP LOSS 15*AverageTrueRange[10](close)
    //SET TARGET PROFIT 15*AverageTrueRange[12](close)
    FlipPosition = 10*AverageTrueRange[14](close)

    // END

    If you see room for improvements, feel free to post here. Ah, I switched to 1min timeframe 🙂

    Masala, thanks for your contribution. I don´t like the offmarket spreads neither 😉 I understand your waryness of non hard stops but in this case seems to hurt the profit quite a bit.
    Be aware that in your code the c1 lack of “>” symbol and the c2 is missing completely (“c2=close<myLowerband")

  5. Uveus • 10/30/2017 #

    Tempus, me da un error al validar el codigo, sobre la variable N.
    Al crear el indicador me pide darle valor, y luego en el codigo me dice que debe ir sin valor.

    gracias

    • TempusFugit • 10/30/2017 #

      Hi Uveus,

      I am guessing you inserted the code of the indicator into the system code, is that right? If so, don´t need to, just import both the indicator and the system and run the system, it takes itself the code from the indicator.

      If this is not your problem I dont understand your question.
