Pathfinder swing TS

So to simplify,
- We should only be looking at trading the instruments/season with a dark green box.
- We will generate entry signals for the coming weeks using the pathfinder daily algo in demo mode.
- We will buy the CFD, ETF, etc for the correct instrument manually according to our own risk management
- We will hold this position until an exit signal is given or our own trailing stop (approximately 5-15 days)
- Continue this procedure every 2 weeks
Is this correct?

Reiner, I cant imagine how much time you spent in crunching these numbers for so many instruments.
I hope u still sleep well, without nightmares of takeProfit-numbers that hunt you in your dreams. Absolutely amazing that you are sharing this setup.
And since we already saw the fruits of all your labour (PF-4h-DAX and Xmas-PL trade) I am more than willing to help in whatever way I can.
Since we will carry together a lot of information, I started an online document and will be happy to update it with the latest posts of this topic:
(After opeing it, remember to add the “Navigation Pane” in the “View”-Tab)
I have added a Cotton swing strategy.
Ugly drawdown, but with a low highest loss , I would trade it 😉 .

I’m very impressed that so many want to participate – Thanks a lot. The Pathfinder swing roadmap shows 21 potential setups for the next period and therefore we need 21 Pathfinder swing versions. With the next post I’ll distribute the instruments but it’s only a proposal and we can change it if it doesn’t fit.
The robots based on Pathfinder daily V2 and should be optimized to the next period or periods if there are more green spots in a row. Please keep an eye on the number of profitable trades (> 70% if possible) and maximal drawdown (around max 25%). Please publish every version with a screenshoot of the backtest results and attach a plain textfile or an itf until end of the week.
We start slowly with the codes we have so far. Nothing is perfect and of course there are more topics we have to discuss such as:

- robots strategy (a robot for every setup or one robot for every instrument with all setups)
- portfolio strategy (how can we backtest this idee with different instrume
here my proposal , as mentioned we can chnage it. Of course you also can work together.
wp01 (Netherland): SP500, AEX
flowsen123 (Germany): DAX, Soybeans
Jesús (Spain): DOW, Wheat
ALE (Italy): MIB, Platinium
mbaker15 (Great Britain): FTSE, Cooper

Arno (France): Euro STOXX, Palladium
dajvop (Sweden): HANGSENG, ASX
Alco (Netherland): NASDAQ, Sugar
Aloysius (France): SAF, Natural Gas
Brage (Sweden): Coffee, Cotton
You can use the atached template and please read the following approach:
We need a version for the next period but you also can check the whole year.
Don’ hesitate to ask if something isn’t clear.

maybe this video may help you guy to optimize the system
I think in combination with the guideline of rainer it should do the job.
good fun everyone 🙂
