Ichimoku DM strategy SAF40 – 1 hour

Ichimoku DM strategy SAF40 – 1 hour

I wrote this strategy today after studying some Ichimoku Trading Stategies.

It is mainly based around Ichimoku breakout strategy but also includes checks for Directional Movement and Divergence.

I wrote it for my local market (South Africa 40 Cash) on the 1Hr Timeframe on which it performs okay, which is no mean feat.

But to be completely honest i am disappointed with Ichimoku as an automated strategy in general.

But enough mumbling. Here is the code, maybe someone will find it useful.

Time schedule are adapted to intraday spread (8 points).

    Seems to work well on the DAX as well. Just change the timeframe and Stop pLOSS to ATR*3

    Thanks Juanj for sharing this.
    May I know what time frame you have changed for DAX?

    @CKW I cannot remember but it is easy to optimize for different time-zones just comment out the Flatbefore and Flatafter times and use variables to search for the best time period. I sometimes just optimize variable x and use 8 for variable y:
    If hour < x or hour > x+y

    I actually completely re-wrote this strategy as I found I actually coded it VERY wrong. My new version is in my opinion probably one of the best Ichimoku strategies out there. @Nicholas are there any way I can replace this version?

      Juanj, is it possible to just paste the new code in this comment section as some people do, given that it is uncertain at the moment whether or not the code above has been updated?

      Tnx, Norbert

      Did you change the Kijun-Sen to the “Standard Period x 2” and corrected the Senkou-Span B so it is not the same as the Kijun-Sen calculation, but continued the use of the “Standard Period x 3” for the SPAN-B?

    Hi! Thanks for sharing! Have the code been swapped to the new one? or is it the first one still in the link?

  6. corne • 06/09/2017 #

    Hi there – is there maybe somewhere a new version available to look at?

    *Bump*
    Have the code been swapped to the new one?

  8. juanj • 335 days ago #

    No, this is still the original version. I will post the new version in the forum sometime today and share the link.

    Hi Juanj. Thanks for this. I am tying it as we speak. It does not trade that often, which is fine.But I am trying to develop a short term strategy for the SA40 on the 3,5 or 10min timeframe, that trades a few time a day with small gains, that could add up to larger ones. Could you suggest some indicators to use to achieve this? I have played around with the most common ones without success. Stochastic,RSI,MADC etc.
