Discussing the strategy VECTORIAL DAX (M5)

Thanks. I am certain there’s lots of room for improvement and optimization.
BTW not sure I understood what part was wrong with the %TrailingStop – does it matter in these versions or does it only matter if you use breakeven?

Hi Paul, your job is amazing. I’m using your last version (v3p3) on DJ 3minutes: last week really good, but yesterday a big lost with 3 loosing trades , do you think is it normal o is there something to optimize, for bettere performace?
Thank you very much.09/18/2020 at 8:28 AM #14462109/18/2020 at 9:22 AM #144631
I’m growing more and more determined that on average it’s safer to turn most strategies off around FED announcements and similar macroeconomic events, regardless of the strategies being supposed to be robust and backtested on many such events, I’ve seen them go bananas too often now and it’s not worth it.
Since I had a profitable version of DJ3-strategy running already I took the risk of running the old one as well as the new ones, both with and without MM this week. Not the best idea I’ve had 😛
I guess it would be a bit too early to say whether it should be optimized differently.09/18/2020 at 9:25 AM #14463209/18/2020 at 7:43 PM #14471809/18/2020 at 10:51 PM #144732
I’ve been sitting the whole week building different strategies just to get a feel for different indicators. Most have been crap and some has been ok, but nothing special.
Today I got a decent one that needed something else and I thought of the vector in this one. Perfect, could work. Then the money management. Then… all of a sudden, it was almost a copy of it hehe. Oh well, back to square one 🙂09/20/2020 at 10:58 AM #144796
Thank you Paul. I’m testing also DAX 3m Vectorial V3p4 on demo, but it has not the same behavior of backtest: total different trades. It seems that it does not close the positions, for example I’ve set weekendpostion=0 but Friday the script does not close the position. Could you help me? Maybe a new version? Thank you again for the great work.09/20/2020 at 5:41 PM #144823
Maybe check your time zone, any problem GMT+2, the code (DAX 3m Vectorial V3p4) is clear :123456if not weekendposition thenif (dayofweek=5 and time>=215400) thenexitshort at marketsell at marketendifendif
Even on backtest, every trades close before the week-end at 21h54min, if weekposition = 009/20/2020 at 6:38 PM #14482609/21/2020 at 8:38 AM #14485409/21/2020 at 9:58 AM #14486109/21/2020 at 10:05 AM #14486209/21/2020 at 10:05 AM #14486409/21/2020 at 10:06 AM #144865
