It’s curve-fitted. Found poor performance between those hours and without trading & using the signals in that period the average gain almost doubled with less trades and in result a better equity-curve.
Important to the results is to maintain the position over the weekend and the stoploss of 2%.07/21/2019 at 7:18 PM #10307807/21/2019 at 10:25 PM #10308107/21/2019 at 11:07 PM #103082
latest version vectorial – dax v4.4p 5m
Main focus was handling last entry time trades on Friday and the position in weekend/holiday. Although keeping a position in the weekend gives better results, it’s a risk.
I mentioned the poor quality of entries in the morning and therefore was a bit surprised to see results without bb&ts of the morning strategy. (who does check that anyway?)
It closes on signal in the other trading blocks and has a stoploss active (2%). Make sure to activate closeonweekendprofit = 1 and of-course use usetimecriteria =1
At the moment I consider it finished for the dax. Thanks to balmora74 for posting the strategy.
Advise to run in it in demo first. Coding often gives unexpected results.
Haven’t run this strategy live…yet.
@Psg91450 your problem I think is mentioned in page 9. You could try this version.

Have you tried others degre or pente parameters only for morning entries?07/22/2019 at 12:05 PM #103099
@winnie37 Thanks I will ‘ve a look
@auvergnat No I haven’t. If trading in the morning and optimising for that, then you don’t exit on other signal in say lunchtime, only on bb/ts/sl/pt and as such the entry must be good.
You can try alter the full trading times to your liking and set the same time also below the entry codes. Just set tradeschedule = 0 and usetimecriteria = 0. Keep us informed how it goes!

between the v4.2 and your latest version v4.4, the 4.2 seems to be more productive (the profits are a bit better and the max % drawdown slower). But maybe the latest version is safer…?
The screenshot is a test with no reinvest and positionsize=1.

vectorial – dax v4.5p 5m
my advise is to use resetcounter=0 default en set the positioncriteria high so there are no restrictions on the number of trades.

Well, that morning entry from last friday, which was at the time poor and almost on the day high, came out swinging!
started it in demo later on, but very interesting to see how it goes. It needed a stoploss of 2% indeed.
above I found in the morning session trade not to take ts or bb and only go on signal in lunch & afternoon. It’s almost 300 points up from it’s low point and about 170 points in profit now
