Heiken Ashi TMS/TDI strategy

Heiken Ashi TMS/TDI strategy

Hi guys.

My first contribution to the strategy site. It’s based on several codes from the site, but mainly the TDI and TMS from both Nicolas and Reiner. I changed the strategy a bit so it fits the Oil- Brent Crude. It seems like that every strategy that I test need to be “adjusted” to the particular instrument. Does anyone do the same, or do you strictly keep the rule? Anyway the code has no zero bar profit nor does it have SL or TP coded, in fact it has only 15 trades over 3 month. It sure could be more “perfect” as there are some entries that could be more profitable. Unfortunately I can only backtest it 3 month. Apparently IG only hold 3 month of data for Crude Oil. It’s tested with a 3 point spread. Anyway here it is, please comment 🙂

    Thank you Kasper for your contribution to the Library. I know this kind of strategy code can help a lot of people around here. You have put together a lot of other people pieces of work in one strategy to make yours and that’s fine. I can say that the objective of the website has been completed 🙂 Sharing our coding knowledge to help each other to better and quickly achieve the hard learning curves to build effective codes, even if they are not perfect. I can see code from Grizzly too and from Adolfo.
    About the strategy, I tested it on PRT-CFD history (which is longer than the IG one), and I find it good too since mid-2015 (no history before that). Understand that the profit curve is not straight, but not deal with massive drawdown at all. Hope to see more from you soon 🙂

    Hi! Thanks for sharing. I´m able to backtest the code a year. Here´s the result:

      thanks for the test. Still not bad, but room for improvement 🙂

    • ALEALE • 08/06/2016 #

      Dear Mr. Brymas ,could you test the optimazed strategy of Elsbortrading below for 1 year ?Thanks All

    Great work. I see you’ve used some of my code too 🙂

    Hi Casper,
    I see you’ve been busy. Wondering if it would be better  to remove on “shortexit” mab<50 and on “Longsell” mab>50. On recent history this reduces profits but only  minimally but avoids seeing large erosion on the latest trade.

    • Elsborgtrading • 08/06/2016 #

      hi john. Yes quite busy. Regards the  numbers I just found a way to optimise the them. I did not had the time yet

  5. Elsborgtrading • 08/06/2016 #

    The reason i added those limmit is to catch the false breakout of a trade. It will save many orders that othervise would have a huge drawback

  6. Elsborgtrading • 08/06/2016 #

    Hello guys. Using the optimization technique I was able to produce a more profitable code. still without the huge drawback. also it eliminated the one loss I had. I also added an extra streak to the Money Management code. 4 in a row- since we were doing so well.  I’d still like if someone could be kind and test it back further as I still only have data since may 2016

    Ho notato che sembra dia buoni risultati su GBP/USD  (la prima versione del codice) 
    Chi può postare un backtest più lungo ?

  8. grizzly • 08/06/2016 #

    Can i suggest, that this piece of code:
    Risk = round(Equity/100000)be changed to
    MaxPositionA = 50
    Risk = min(round(Ratio*Equity/100000)*1,MaxPositionA)
    Otherwise, risk -> infinity haha

    • Elsborgtrading • 08/06/2016 #

      Very nice Grizzly. I properly would have done some beginners programming like this, but yours has more “pronage” 🙂 My code is only running on Live demo for at least 3 month before considering investing real money in it. Mainly due to the small backtesting range- but if It would make it to real investment, I thing I also would start with only 1 contract
      If PositionSize>=50 then
      to begin with

    • Elsborgtrading • 08/06/2016 #

      Grizzly, what should Ratio be?

  9. DerPat • 08/06/2016 #

    I am also interested in your forward testing, as backtesting results are useless.

    • Elsborgtrading • 08/06/2016 #

      I agree, but since we don’t have any SL or TP at all, or any Profit on zero candle, I think it safe to say that this backtest is more useful. However 3 month is somewhat not enough.
