Buy and Bars Exit

Recommended Posts

anyone has a sample code for the following?

 

buy whn stoch<30 and exit 5 bars from entry

 

if next day stoch is <30 buy another unit and exit 5 bars from entry

 

if next next day stoch is <30 buy another unit and exit 5 bars from entry

 

try code them but the second and third entry all exit at the first exit altogether rather 5 bars from entry

Vars: Stoch(O), Count1(0), Count2(0), Count3(0) ;

 

If MarketPosition <= 0 then Begin

Count1 = 0;

Count2 = 0;

Count3 = 0;

end;

 

If Count1 = 0 and Count2 = 0 and Count3 = 0 and Stock < 30 then begin

Buy x shares this bar on close;

Count1 = BarNumber

end;

 

If Count1 <> 0 and BarNumber >= Count1 + 5 then begin

Sell X shares this bar on close;

Count1 = 0;

end;

 

If Count1 <> 0 and BarNumber = Count1 + 1 and Count2 = 0 and Stoch < 30 then Begin

Buy x shares this bar on close;

Count2 = BarNumber

end;

 

If Count2 <> 0 and BarNumber >= Count2 + 5 then begin

Sell X shares this bar on close;

Count2 = 0;

Sell X shares this bar on close;

Count3 = 0;

end;

 

Good Luck, you will need it.

Thank you for your excellent post

 

Notice when there is a interval bar with stoch>30 and next bar stoch<30 the second signal is not registered

 

Changing the (barnumber +1 or bar number+2) would solve some of the signal

 

More than 3 signals with interval bars stoch above 30 would render the subsequent signal not registered

 

How you make the code (barnumber +1 or bar number+2) dynamic to account for unknown interval bars stoch > 30?

 

The third and fourth bars should have signal but due to second bar >30 the subsequent signals are not registered

Your OP didn't say anything about "interval bars." The code provided will perform as per your specs.

 

IMHO your strategy is a recipe for disaster but if you want custom coding for this or any other strategy let me recommend Martin Miller of JAM Strategy Trading Martin wrote the TradeStation Wiki, knows more about TradeStation and Easy Language than the technical staff at TradeStation, is great to work with and the best there is for TS Consulting.

 

I have worked with him for years and wholeheartedly recommend him.

 

His contact info including phone, Skype and email is here.

 

Cheers

While JAM is a very well respected company, it is worth noting that there are other programmers out there ;)

 

You'll find a list of those endorsed by TS (including Miller) on their website. Whoever you use, I would expect to pay a minimum of around $90 per hour . . .

 

Kind regards,

All due respect Blue, but over the years I have used a selection of those listed and found Martin to be the best by far.

 

As to rates, his is even higher, $125 Eu per hour and he is so much better than any of those listed that he is well worth it. When you are looking for help of this kind, the rate should be far down the list of selection criteria.

 

Deep into execution issues with TradeStation I spent lots of $$ looking for answers from the list you mention. I finally found Martin and my issues were solved in less than an hour.

UB,

 

Would you tweak the code to account for interval bars? This code is like lacking a little tweak and don't seems to warrant pay coding service

 

Have code them up in MS but want to transfer them to ES for some carification

Hi Urma,

 

I don't doubt that - but if you post such a singular endorsement it's likely just to be taken down by the moderators. As soon as you acknowledge that he is one option amongst many, you're given much more general information and then stating a preference.

 

As well as this, isn't it always good to point out to the OP that EL is relatively simple to learn to code (at the level the OP currently requires) and will serve as an invaluable tool in their development as a trader, allowing them to test the validity of their ideas before committing money to a strategy?

 

Maybe I should stop interfering :)

 

Kind regards,

Blue,

 

If I was looking for a coding or any other service, a singular endorsement from an experienced user would be EXACTLY what I would be looking for. Plainly in any group of practitioners there is an average level of competence and a small group, third standard deviation, that excels.

 

Less than the third standard deviation of traders succeed and I would think it obvious that such a level of trading, coding, understanding and execution would require support of an extraordinary level of competence.

 

While EL is a great tool for system development, it is wrong and misleading to advertise that it is easy to learn at a level that will produce profitable trading systems. If that were true you couldn't get a cab in NYC, all the drivers would be watching their bots.

 

The average or the lowest common denominator doesn't make it in this biz. Most everybody on this forum, including vendors, lose in their trading and will continue to lose until the pain makes them leave the markets.

 

It is not a business for everybody and to foster the idea that everybody has an equal chance of success only leads to loss and heartache. The vast majority, for one reason or another, are just not equipped for this biz and certainly history documents this fact.

 

Only the top few percent of traders and systems succeed in the long run and I put Martin in the top few percent of consultants. I say that not because I use his services and like the guy but because I have tried many others and find him the best and I think that this kind of information from an experienced EL developer is way more valuable that something as pale and bland that there are many other consultants.

 

All men are not equal in ability and all consultants are also not equal in ability and in a world where only the top few make it, quality, not price, is the prime consideration.

Hi Urma,

 

I wasn't challenging the quality of the recommendation, nor looking for an argument.

    • CFDs are quite attractive to day traders who would be able to utilize leverage for trading assets that would be more costly to buy as well as sell. CFDs could be quite risky due to low industry regulation, potential lack of liquidity, as well as the requirement of maintaining an adequate margin due to leveraged losses.  
    • Demo Trading is considered to be a learning platform for obtaining knowledge about the Market Structure in Forex. But most traders make the mistake of jumping into the market thinking that they have learned a lot by just doing a Demo, which leads them to failure.

    • Date : 17th June 2021. Market Update – June 17 – BIG Surprise from the FOMC Dots. Market News Today – FED no rate change and $120bn bond buying to continue. BUT BIG hawkish surprise with plans for 2 x 0.25% rate rises in 2023 (13/18 votes), it had been 2024 and even 7/18 see rate rises in 2022. Statement increased 2021 growth to 7% from 6.5%, and inflation to 3.4% from 2.4% 3 months ago. “risks to the economic outlook remain“, rising inflation was “largely reflecting transitory factors”, recovery “significantly” dependent upon the next steps of the virus. We will taper when economy has reached “substantial further progress” will do what we can to “avoid a market reaction”. Next meeting July 27/28.   USD (91.43), Yields (1.57%) and the VIX (20.46) all rallied. Stocks (-0.54%), Commodities(-2.0%+), EM currencies & Oil($71.10) all sank. Biden-Putin – both talked tough and of a “constructive” first Summit. The thorny issues of Nuclear Weapons, (my arsenal is bigger than yours) Cybersecurity (leave us alone, we never touched you) Geopolitics (where you go we will follow) were all on the agenda. Overnight – Big beats for AUD Jobs (115.2 k vs 30.5K) & Unemployment (5.1% vs 5.5%) & NZD GDP (1.65% vs 0.5%) data. European Open – The September 10-year Bund future is down -63 ticks in catch up trade, while Treasuries have started to stabilise after the post-FOMC sell off. The slightly more hawkish stance at the Fed and stellar data out of Australia and New Zealand overnight seems to signal that markets need to prepare for a gradual withdrawal of stimulus. DAX and FTSE 100 futures are still down -0.3% and -0.4% respectively, US futures are also under pressure, after a largely weaker session in Asia overnight and a lower close on Wall Street. ECB’s Lane – “don’t be premature with assumptions over PEPP tapering” September meeting important but “a lot of data still to to come” before December. Today – Norges Bank, SNB and CBRT rate decisions, Eurozone CPI (final), US Weekly Claims, Philly Fed, CB Leading Index & ECB’s Elderson. Biggest Mover post FED @ (06:30 GMT) XAGUSD (-2.51%) turned lower again, ahead of FED after rejecting 27.80. Moved significantly below 27.00 to test of 26.56 in immediate aftermath, closed at 26.95. Faster MAs remain aligned lower, RSI 30.35 and testing OB zone, MACD signal line and histogram falling and significantly below 0 line. H1 ATR 0.210 Daily ATR 0.603.

    • I have been corresponding with a mathematically oriented gentleman who is quite brilliant in his approach to the markets but who is very close to going off the deep end. He wrote me the following email:   "I have given the 45 degree - phenomenon a lot of thought. I pretty much would like to know how you figure out the inner workings.   "What I think is:   "(a) The route of the 45 degree cuts the Elliot 3 pivot and the 4 reverse pivot in half. The retracing swing from 3 to 4 (starting off with what looks like a congestion) is the playing field of the insiders. It quickly develops into a squeeze to the downside before the final 5th wave shoots up.   "(b) Those who know what is happening, take full advantage of the less informed by jumping on their resting orders. The key is the knowledge that the 5th wave lies ahead. Then the load of contracts could be transferred to the public's 'greed-panic.'"   While I would like to agree with what he has stated above, I'm not really sure of what he actually said: Are you? I submitted the following answer:   I know virtually nothing about how to count Elliott waves or the meaning of Elliott wave counts. I have no reason to believe in them and many reasons to believe that they are nothing more than what is stated about Elliott Waves. It is a THEORY. Personally, I want to trade based on facts and the reality of what I'm seeing. My belief that Elliott Waves are virtually worthless comes from the results others have obtained from following them. I am very familiar with these results. I know that Elliott practitioners have been dead wrong about the stock market for multiple years running. Elliott wavers missed the bull market of the 1990s. I know that many times they wrongly predicted the rise and fall of the U.S. dollar. I know that people who follow Elliott Wave Theory were wrong about gold and silver for many years, predicting rises as those metals fell to multi-year lows. It is difficult for me to understand why anyone would want to trade based on a theory when they could trade based on what is plainly seen in the markets.   Author: Joe Ross     Profits from games of knowledge: https://www.predictmag.com/
