Dax Daily Open Long – timeframe 4 hours

Dax Daily Open Long – timeframe 4 hours

A simple code with differently weighted averages and a stop by repulse.
Supplemented by the seasonal pattern multiplier and a re-invest strategy.
If necessary, the latter can also be omitted, but it still remains a gain that achieves a higher performance than the Dax itself.

Time conditions should be adapted to your timezone. Timeframe = H4.
You can also do without the fixed TP and SL. The insurance can stay.

kind regards

    JohnScher has requested that I post my very slightly modified version of his strategy that gives better profits and a higher win/loss ratio on here but unfortunately I am unable to post code for some strange reason. Please go to
    https://www.prorealcode.com/topic/wanted-small-code-snippet/#post-57152
    where you can find the new code. You may wish to adjust the SET Target %Profit to 3.75 instead of the 3 that it is as this is a more optimized number.

    What does the last sentence mean: The insurance can stay. (A typical german is over-insured, but a “Robot insurance” is really the final straw). Thx.

  3. JohnScher • 01/03/2018 #

    The “insurance” is against the general dangers such as the sudden appearance of a black hole in the middle of the earth or simply against an exploding nuclear power plant.

    I’m trying to make a probacktest in the suggested 4H timeframe and don’t perform any operations…

  5. JohnScher • 01/03/2018 #

    @Kv6

    Try this code, see below.

    Please pay attention to the correct time settings.
    The trade starts at 09:00 GMT+1 or 08:00 GMT.
    Correspondingly then the closes
    09.00/13.00/17.00/21.00 GMT+1
    08.00/12.00/16.00/22.00 GMT

    Here in the code i use GMT+1

    Then it should work.

    If it doesn’t work, please use ScreenShots.

    Hey JohnScher,
    your code works fine, but my results aren’t as good as yours. Even if I use the same timeframe as you.
    What is wrong with my code? I just copied it.
    Did I miss something?
