    Thank you for sharing!
    Although I have a couple of questions:
    Why 1 min? Since the range is based over 2h and you enter with stop orders you might as well use 15m to get a larger sample size?
    And why a fixed sl/tp? Especially with a small sample size all you do is increase risk of curvefitting?

    Best regards,

      nice that you like the strategy.

      For 1 minute I have chosen to avoid the first minute in the DAX at 9 o’clock, because this is often very turbulent.
      The entrance is at 9 clock 1.

      For the SL / TP I’m still testing myself and I’m not sure how to improve the performance.
      Do you have an idea how to do that?

      Best Regards

    I have a similar approach running – but yours is also very smart – thanks for sharing!

    In the buy long if statement, shouldnt you enter long if onetrade = 1 instead of 0 (row 30)?

  4. JanWd • 189 days ago #

    Was meinst du mit dieser Kode ?
    IF (LONGONMARKET = 1) then
    onetrade = 1
    in = 1
    korrek = 0
    //l1 = POSITIONPRICE + 0.0008
    l2 = POSITIONPRICE – sl
    //sell at l1 LIMIT
    sell at l2 stop

    Mr Beep, nice strategy you have build !

    I played around with your code, and made my own variation on your code, see below, just an alternative way of coding (less static)

    I am not convinced (yet) about the reliability of the outcomes : if using the code on 100.000 bars, it shows no profit for the first 50.000 bars, I personnally am afraid of overfitting.
    Maybe you have a different opinion.

    Your question : ” For the SL / TP I’m still testing myself and I’m not sure how to improve the performance.
    Do you have an idea how to do that? ===> An good option is to use “Variable optimalization”, for the optimal Take Profit values for short and long positions, could also be used for number of highest and lowest bars to be taken (instead of 120 bars) See also page 30 of the manual, https://www.prorealtime.com/en/pdf/probacktest.pdf

    Kind regards,


    DEFPARAM CumulateOrders = true // Kumulieren von Positionen aktiviert
    Defparam FLATAFTER = 163000 // Verhindert das Trading nach xx:xx Uhr

    DaysForbiddenEntry = (DayOfWeek = 6 OR DayOfWeek = 0) // Verhindert das Trading an bestimmten Wochentagen
    Handelszeit = (Time >= 90000 and Time high7 then // Bedingungen zum Einstieg in Long-Positionen
    BUY size CONTRACTS AT high7 STOP
    sl = round((77/10000 * close)) // stop loss
    pll = round((VARIABLE OPTIMIZATION 3 PL/10000 * close)) // take profit long
    else // Bedingungen zum Einstieg in Short-Positionen
    IF close < low7 then
    sl = round((77/10000 * close)) // stop loss
    pss = round(VARIABLE OPTIMIZATION 4 PS/10000 * close) // take profit short

    Thank you for this code that seems to work well. But, if i’m not wrong, we can have buy and short conditions at the same time. So how can the code “decide” between sell and short?

  7. noisette • 164 days ago #

    sorry, I was wrong in my previous message: it’s not possible to have both conditions at the same time

    hi beeb,
    i watched your BOut strategy and i like it very much.
    your code allows only one trade. (long or short).
    what has to be changed in your code, if i like to have maximum 2 trades , so one short and one long, if the events of your code will be matched.
    thx for your support

    Hallo beeb,
    ich schreibe kurz auf Deutsch und falls es von Wert ist übersetze ich es gerne.
    Vielen Dank für Deine Strategie … sieht schon mal super aus.
    Habe eben anstatt dem SL einen 45 TrailingStop verwendet und TP = 55 (hat mir die Analyse so raus geworfen).
    Durch den Trailing Stop finden keine so großen Abbrüche mehr statt.
    Sollte doch real dann auch funktionieren …oder???
    Es sei denn ich habe etwas übersehen.
    Beste Grüße

    • beeb • 140 days ago #

      Hallo Dominik, das mit dem deutsch schreiben kommt mir sehr gelegen. Komme auch aus Deutschland.
      Also mit deinen werten komme ich auf eine kleine Verbesserung was den Gewinn angeht aber auch auf einen Max. Drawdown von 890,20 € .
      Wenn ich die werte so lasse auf einen Drawdown von 0 €. und die Ratio ist auch minimal besser 0,03 punkte, ist aber denke ich bei dem unterschied zu vernachlässigen.
      Man kann sicher noch an ein paar schrauben drehen und kitzelt noch ein bisschen Performanz raus.
      Es gilt nur die richtigen Regler zu finden 😉
      Gruß Benny
