    Hi Francesco,
    is it possible to know which indicator you use for this strategy? thanks

  2. Francesco78 • 01/17/2019 #

    c = (sin(atan((close-open[n])/open[n]*100/n)))
    this is the indicator. Itis a measure of the angle made by the price. I invented it, dont know if it is useful or not but I found that it worked well with the dax

    che strano, a me vengono risultati del tutto opposti sul DAX a 2 ore…

  6. Gianluca • 01/17/2019 #

    (sin(atan che funzioni sono? non le trovo nella ricerca delle funzioni. e mi aggrego a derschnee i risultati non sono quelli esplicati. ed ho usato un grafico 200k barre a 2h

  7. Francesco78 • 01/17/2019 #

    timestart = 90000
    timeend = 180000
    se lavorate con fuso italiano mettete timestart 100000 e timeend 190000
    non dovrebbe cambiar el asostanza comunque,

    grazie mille Francesco: stasera provo da casa, ma non credo che sia un problema di orari.
    Non è che il target profit e lo stop loss sono espressi in euro, anziché punti? 275 punti di profitto mi sembrano tanti.

  9. Francesco78 • 01/17/2019 #

    ok, fammi sapere come ti viene, ciao

    Ciao Francesco, ho provato anch’io con fuso italiano cambiando i profitti e le perdite in punti ma il risultato non cambia. Ho aggiunto anche lo spread a 1 punto dato che mancava ma sono sempre in perdita sia che parto nel 2018 o 2017 fino ai giorni nostri. Grazie

    mi spiace, ma la strategia postata non dà assolutamente la curva dei profitti allegata.

  12. Francesco78 • 364 days ago #

    derschnee spiace a me che non riesci a replicarla. Prima di esprimere giudizi pensaci 2 volte.
