    Allow me to introduce myself, I'm from Denmark just in the progress of learning how to trade. I've alot to learn and a lot mistakes to do yet, but I've such a strong feeling that somehow I'll succeed in minor or major terms. I'm a fast learner :)

    Just call me n00b - I know my place in this world, but hopefully I'll get better in this game :)

  1. hey januson i saw some of the stuff you got on that bollinger band, have you had any success? if you have skype give me a shout my name on it is dan hoyda. cheers

  2. No answers Anyway... I was thinking of some of the currencies in SCO-countries, maybe these will survive the inevitable capitalist meltdown.
  3. I'm having a hard time trying to figure out what there in reality will happen when the currency crisis occurs. My scenario and thinking is based in my heavy investments in XAU/USD, i live in Denmark and my investment currency is DKK. What will happen if the XAU/USD over time, lets say 2-4 years, rose another 1000% and the currency crisis was topping.. meaning that my own currency was near death like some of the major currencies, US, UK pound etc. I dont get it :crap: , will my money be lost down the drain together with the USD and my gold forex was just a dream :missy: Should I exchange my investment currency to another? and which one?
  4. Bardata needs an open, high, low, close, volume and timestamp before it is can be drawn like a bar, I'm sure you know the concept from OHLC. A tick is just a price, volume and timestamp. But as I mentioned if you've 2 or more ticks then it can be expressed as bardata!! (all bar data is aggregated tick data)

  6. A tick can't be modelled into a bar, but a bar will consist of 2 or more ticks.
  7. I just copied the script into PL-editor and pressed F3 { jtHMA strategy } inputs: price(Close), jthmaLength( 21 ), upColour(Blue), downColour(Red); variables: Avg(0), colour(0); Avg = jthma( price, jthmaLength ) ; if Avg > Avg[1] then colour = upColour; if Avg < Avg[1] then colour = downColour; {buy sell Criteria} if colour[1] <> colour then if colour = upColour then Buy ( "jup" ) next bar at market ; if colour[1] <> colour then if colour = downColour then sell ( "jdn" ) next bar at market ; What error message do you get?
  8. MultiCharts fully supports EasyLanguage, I haven't found any .eld file which couldn't compile and work with MultiCharts. Do a search for jtHMA here at TL, I'm sure it's located somewhere - otherwise I'll post a version for you
  9. Yes I can agree what that, but only to a certain degree. The human brain is also very complicated and even small insignificant things can affect the outcome in a negative way! Consistency is needed No one should ever built a system that need that kind of optimizing, I think the main reason for this confusement is that the majority of new players at the market are overwhelming these times. The Market isn't random so why should one ever concentrate on building something at a unrealistic background, besides it would be fun :o But I agree with you
  10. Before one talks about The Holy Grail we need a clear and concise description, can anybody provide that? I can share some of my thoughts in the meantime... I believe that much of the money spent in algorithm trading is in developing user-friendly interfaces and also in developing methods for smooth and seamless distribution of large orders. I think it is extremely hard to keep as low profile as possible during distribution, the idea is to influence the market at least possible to obtain the best price. Likewise the hardware storage costs alot of money - storing tick data can be extremely difficult both in hardware and software. My guess would be that an individual can build a trading system and store data at a price around $ 100,000, this would cover 20-25 shares divided into 2 different markets. This is very detailed I know, purely estimations build from my experience. Now we can do some math... try to cover 50.000 different equities spanning 20 different markets - and this is only equities, take forex, options etc. Wuaaaaa what a bill I am 100% sure that these things here cost huge amounts of money: http://www.microsoft.com/casestudies/casestudy.aspx?casestudyid=4000002610
  11. Hi all Normally I use tick and volume charts in my trading, but I've recently started to look at Points Charts. I wonder why there's so little information and attention to those? Can somebody tell me pros / cons of using Range Charts, personally I like them, it seems like they filter out the noise and only moves when there actually is some action
  12. No I would never optimize/ curvefit a system, I would however be very careful to choose the right resolution, for instance 5000 contracts instead of 30.000 and so forth, as that would depend at the average volume in the particular equity! You can't optimize for a bad chosen resolution, resolution adjustments isn't curvefitting, it's something that's necessary to get the swings clear and cut. Bump: Optimization is a process that tests different parameter values as indicator input and one (person) can then choose which one that satisfies a certain risk/ reward. I'm referring to a inside process in the indicator which weights past values and then dynamically chooses the best at the current moment.
  13. But it still needs optimization? And that's exactly the point where the system fails :doh: Forget about optimization, curvefitting etc. Create a system that looks at different scenarios, weights them and then take the most accurates one at that particular moment in time
  14. Let me tease you a little... Would a system only be profitable if you were the first to enter/ exit at the right moment? OR could you wait for others to lead the way? spcul8r -> Isn't tape reading lagging?
  15. Tresor-> What indicator wouldn't be profitable after optimizing? IMHO as soon as an indicator needs optimizing to give proper indications, then the life span of the indicator would turn out to be very short and the worst part, one can allways use an excuse for the incoming failure An optimal indicator would consist of more than just simple OHLC calculations, but should take previous action into consideration and thereby be build as dynamic as possible, hence adaptive indicators rules and optimization should be superfluous. But again.. it's just me :missy: BTW: Just remove the name of the indicator, I'm sure no one can figure out the name it's a lot easier to share when everybody share
