Sorry, not sure if will work with Amibroker. Maybe some else can help out here? As for the EOD data that could be done, but I've never tested it. My next plan is to continue to refine the system with other entry methods, exit methods and filters to see if I can improve the performance.

Purely selfish reasons. That is, I like trading the Euro and I'm always looking for new ideas in this area. Also, if I remember correctly I did test it on BP and it did not do nearly as well as on the Euro.

Re: FirstStrike Trading System

amazing I read about this exact system on 1 of the metatrader forex forums back in 2006-2007.

The premise that trading less frequently was good.

Also at least 1 well known system developer has a system with good results called:

"buy monday, sell friday".

On that forum thread someone wrote a metatrader EA.

Being a newbie at the time I moved onto other things, but also just because it was metatrader, how trustworthy was the testing etc.

Interesting too see this again.

Hi Jeff,

If you're interested in examining further EL strategy code for the Euro then drop me a private message - I have several things that I have developed but never traded. You'd get the benefit of hopefully seeing some new ideas, and I'd have the benefit of having another system developer's opinion of the robustness of my strategies.

Thanks,

BlueHorseshoe

So let me get this straight. Rather than help everyone by trying to develop a concept in this thread in public, you want to take it offline and keep "the good stuff" all to yourself. Does that about sum it up?

While I can't speak for BlueHorseshoe, I think he is planning on sending me code from something unrelated to this code presented in this topic (FirstStrike). I think it's his own personal code and simply wishes for me to give my opinion and any recommendations. So, I can understand why he may not wish to share it with everyone.

As for FirstStrike, I plan on continuing my research and posting it here with open source code available.

Hi Bakrob,

You are correct in saying that I don't want to develop a concept in this thread in public, but incorrect in saying that I want to keep "the good stuff" all to myself. If you would especially like to see the code in question then PM me and I'll send it through to you - it's hardly a massive secret.

The approaches that I actually use in my trading (of the ES - I don't even trade the Euro) are things that I discuss regularly on this forum and think that I am fairly open about, so I feel that your criticism is a little unfair.

Kind regards,

BlueHorseshoe

Thanks for the offer. I rescind my early comments.
