VECTORIAL DAX (M5)

VECTORIAL DAX (M5)

Hello. I share with the community an automatic strategy that works on the DAX for M5 timeframe.

I wanted to test a strategy that involves observing the angular orientation of a moving average. The higher the angle and slope of the moving average, the stronger and more directional the movement. It then took me back into my distant memories of mathematics courses, trigonometry and vector calculus to try to develop this code.

The strategy consists first of all in calculating the angular orientation of a 10-period moving average (PeriodA) over a period of 15 bars (nbChandelierA). Then I calculate the slope of this moving average. This amounts to calculating a “vector” hence the name of the algorithm.

I then added a trailing stop and optimized the entry points with particular playing on the variable “lag”.

I launched the code in real mode and in demo mode. There are some differences in the positions, but overall it works pretty well.

Note that the attached backtest images correspond to a backtest on 200,000 bars (Premium version of PRT) with a spread of 1.5 points.

The code looks good on other timeframes (including H4) by changing the variables.

Looking forward to having your feedback, feedback and suggestions for improvements.

    Thanks for this contribution to our library! Did you try Out Of Sample (OOS) tests after optimization? or even in backtest by optimizing only a single part of the history?

    Not yet but i’ll try to do it. Is it possible to open a file discussion in the French or English forum in order to share ideas and trying to improve this strategy ?

      English topic should drain more people!

    Hallo Balmora74,
    you wrote: “The code looks good on other timeframes (including H4) by changing the variables.”
    How do you change the variables on which timeframes?

    Hi, nice piece of work, using atan.
    My question: MMA is constituted by the 10 most recent bars (PeriodeA=10). Why not also assign nbChandelierA with the same value 10? That would make your algo more consistent. The same goes for the couple in ~B.
    Regards, Jerke

    Hi Jerke and thanks for your return. I choose the values because they gave me the best equity curve… But i will try to test the strategy with the same values for couples in A and B…

    Great work I’ve changed the trade quantity to reflect whether price is above or below the 200 day moving average a “buy” of 2 if above this average and a sell of 1 and for a “sell” of 2 if below the average and 1 if above. Makes little difference on the most recent 100000 units but I think gives better logic in the light of current trend.

    Hello Balmora, good morning.
    Nice code, Thanks for sharing. I just read from your comments that you are using this strategy in live and demo.
    I am just asking how to move this code to live.
    As far as I know with ProRealTime and IB (interactive Broker) you can not use ProOrder Automatic trading.
    You can only use this with IG CFDs…
    I have some codes in demo and I would like to move forward to live. Any help I will apreciate.
    Thanks a lot Regards Paco

    @Pacolopez
    Hi ! I run this code live on IG CFDs (not via IG Interactive Broker).

  11. PacoLopez • 175 days ago #

    Thanks Balmora74.
    100% clear now.
    Not posible at all with IB
    Only option by now with IG
    Thanks Regards Paco

    Hi BALMORA, looks like a good compliment algorithm. I tried to test it on the EUR USD but it doesn’t calculate any trade, how come?

  13. kompiuter • 137 days ago #

    Hello, how did you optimized all these variable? If I try to optimize only two variables it takes hours and often the software crashes.
    Thanks in advance and compliment for this algorithm! Marco

    Great work ! My only concern is about risk management. Your results are based on 10k. Max loss 500euro. Its mean 5% max loss by trade. Ratio Risk-Reward is approx. 1:1. My problem with that is consecutive lost that can ruine you in a losing strike. Have you try to play with ratio RR and max loss by trade ?
