Stochastic Gold Trader

Stochastic Gold Trader

I have been trading Gold more than usual recently and made an interesting observation regarding the trend waves moving very much in sync with the stochastic. So this prickled my curiosity enough to quickly code-up a strategy based on my observation. And despite the fact that I purposefully fine tuned (aka curve fitted) the stochastic parameters I still think the result is rather promising considering there really isn’t that many essential moving parts outside of the stochastic settings. Also as a professional PRT developer I no longer have the liberty of sharing as many strategies to the community as before, so I sincerely hope there is something that someone here might find useful.

    Hi Juanj,
    Thank you very much for sharing, at first glance this looks great. I look forward to testing further!

    Ottimo TS grazie Juanj
    Si puo’ adattare anche agli indici? Magari ci puoi suggerire qualche dritta per il mini SP500?

    Hi juanj, I don’t undestand line 39 on the uploaded code. There is a stoch -1 on the if statement. Maybe you wanted to write stoch = -1.

  4. juanj • 37 days ago #

    @Pranik that is exactly what I did? Line 39 looks at stoch = -1 and line 45 looks at stoch = 1

  5. juanj • 37 days ago #

    The ‘=’ sign probably got lost during the copy/paste. It is always better to rather import the ITF file to avoid these formatting issues.

    hi Juanj, thank you. TF 1 h?

  7. pranik • 37 days ago #

    Hi @Juanj, I imported itf file and the ‘=’ sign is missing. If I put stoch = -1 as you suggest the results are very different from yours. If I remove ‘=’ sign the results are the same.

  8. Poiloulou • 36 days ago #

    The question is how the program understand “Stoch -1”. Because if we remove it, or if we put Stoch = -1 it is not working at all.

  9. pranik • 36 days ago #

    If stoch -1 then
    is equivalent to
    if stoch -1 <> 0 then

    io l’ho messo live e qualcosa non va: apre posizioni short, in accordo con lo stocastico che punta al ribasso, mentre sul backtest apre posizioni long.
    Per adesso sono posizioni positive

  11. Gaspare • 34 days ago #

    ho inserito una loss di -25 e un profit di +50 per cui dopo l’ottimizzazione i parametri dello stocastico sono 22 5 4

    Just be careful, this strategy has not been tested live

    Superbe stratĂ©gie, elle marche plutĂŽt bien en H1 et H4. Merci 😉

    Hi – I’ve had a lot of fun testing this out, and trying various iterations and tweaks. Thank you once again for sharing. A nice little strategy in an asset class I don’t currently trade. A useful stop loss mechanism is what I am currently looking to incorporate, along with the ability to exit the market if the direction changes to that of the current trade. Will share when I have something that works.
    Thanks once again, and keep posting!

    This strategy is more than 90% in the market, do you reckon overnight interest costs in your strategy ?

  16. juanj • 28 days ago #

    Hi Jan, I did not include swap fees for this strategy as it is primarily a ‘concept strategy’. I do not personally trade this strategy live neither do I intend to,
