VTAD Turnaround Tuesday – DAX (15m)

VTAD Turnaround Tuesday – DAX (15m)

I created this trading system following the VTAD-rules as follows:

  • Close on Monday at 17.30h (regular trading hours DAX) has to be below its daily 34-SMA
  •  If so, then buy one contract on Monday at 17.45h
  •  Exit the position on Wednesday at 09.00h

VTAD (Vereinigung Technischer Analysten Deutschland) works without SL or TP. However I decided against this rule and optimized the code on SL- and TP-variables.

I noticed one problem with this code:

VTAD uses daily candles based on regular trading hours 09.00h – 17.30h. My Broker IG Markets offers 24h-DAX-Trading and daily candles are 24h-candles. When exactly they start a candle and close it I don’t know for sure. But I think it is at midnight (GMT?) when a new candle is opened.

Of course I could have adjusted my trading hours in the options-menu of the ProRealTime-Trading-Software. But this would affect all my existing trading systems!

Best solution would be if PRT’s Timeframe-command would offer an option about when to open and close candles!

Works on 5m-TF too, but you have to optimize PCTgSL (Stopp Loss in %) and PCTtp (Take Profit in %)-Variables!

    Interesting idea and with a lot of room for improvement…. maybe a trailing stop? Thanks for sharing

    Unglaubich das dieser Strategie Gewinne generiert ! Es erschient leider nicht so gleichmaßig wann man es für die letzten 100.000 bars benutzt (Prüfung per 30.09.2019).

    I recognized a possible problem with the timeframe / Defparam variables. As far as I know, the timeframe comand uses the 15m candles to create the daily candles. So, in case your broker offers 24/7 DAX trading this would result in a total of two daily candles only once you start the robot. Calculation: Defparam Preloadbars = 200 –> 200 15m candles will be preloaded, there will be 200/24/4 = 2,08 days of daily candles available for all daily candles calculations. Unfortunately the strategy requires the 34d-moving-average as an indicator. As a result of which, the robot will be running for several weeks without being able to check on the 34d-SMA criteria properly. To be safe, I recommend adjusting the Defparam preloadbars variable settings from 200 to 34*24*4 = 3.264 candles (15m-chart) or 34*24*12 = 9.792 (5m-charts), respectively.

    I am not absolutely sure about that. Can anybody confirm? Is there a difference among the PRT Versions v10.3 and v11?
