I am trying to make this fantastic initiative from Grahal go further to allow us to select and enhance performing strategy
You have contributed to it firstly; would you enter your performances LIVE in order to growth our knowledge?

I have Pathfinder Swing dax daily in live account and got a notification that it is stopping. I know IG servers went down (couldn’t log in) after market closed yesterday (friday) – maybe that is the reason…
It has a position which is in profit. If it doesn’t close the position and let it run – will the code continue to look for an exit or should I set a stop loss myself?10/12/2019 at 11:27 AM #110005
should I set a stop loss myself?
If it says the System / strategy is stopping and you haven’t got the box ticked to close trades under such scenarios then yeah deffo set a stop loss yourself. Even if you have the box ticked I would set a stop loss … if you can!?
Even close it if you can … never wrong to take a profit … there is always another day to fight the markets! 🙂
I guess you mean set stop loss via the IG Platform and thereby turn the trade into a manual trade??10/12/2019 at 11:52 AM #110006
Yeah, I saw that it was set to closed by default now.
I started a new account for automatic/systematic only and I really want to keep any manual interference to a minimum, but I guess you’re right. I wasn’t sure if the strategy somehow still runs in the background or if orphan means that it’s on it’s own, but the latter makes most sense and then I better set a stop loss. Thanks for the advice.10/12/2019 at 12:22 PM #110007
I really want to keep any manual interference to a minimum,
You could wait until the DAX trades again on Sunday night at 23:00 (uct+1) and then either the strategy will stop no problem or you may end up with strategy stopped and an orphan trade … so keep a watch out for orphans!01/01/2020 at 1:23 PM #11567701/01/2020 at 1:26 PM #11567802/12/2020 at 4:10 PM #119436
Since this topic came up again, I was intrigued to do a full analysis of how the full year swing strategies performed since creation. I must say I am surprised. I forgot about them completely as I marked them as failure.
See attached the picture with all indices swing strategies I created. I created them more or less 1,5 years ago.
They are long only strategies. Analysis is a bit distorted as 1 contract in DOW, Dax, FTSE etc. has now obviously a higher value than 10 years ago.
@Gianluca, I included your mentioned MIB strategy. I am happy for you that you were very lucky since creation date as all 9 trades were profitable.
Nevertheless, I am very cautious with that strategy as it has only a backtest of 53 trades.02/12/2020 at 5:57 PM #119467
A swing daily trade should not made too much trade in my opinion. And should be appropriate to the market and the moment that the market is living. As i said before, is useless to use a system backtested taking into consideration the years before 2008. I am speaking for the MIB algo. Mib was over 30k before the big crisis and after that moved betwen 14 and 24.5 that why i create the system to take in consideration only that period.
Btw you make a great work.05/02/2020 at 8:12 AM #129338
