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;

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.

    • Date : 1st December 2021. Market Update – December 1 – Taper gets a boost & Transitory gets “retired”. Powell “retires” Transitory in light of Omicron & surprisingly suggests faster taper – Stocks tank, Dollar& Yields rise on faster tightening expectations.   USD (USDIndex 95.90) back down from leap to 96.60 on Powell testimony. Saw fresh wave of risk aversion as Treasuries sold off, yields spiked (particularly the 2yr) , Stocks fell significantly with USA100 down over -2.4% (APPL bucked the trend +3.16%) USA500 -1.90% (-88pts) 4567 & USA30 off 652 pts or -1.86%. Consumer confidence saw a slump in the headline, and a rise to a 13-year high in the inflation component. The Chicago PMI fell to 61.8. Home prices increased to fresh record peaks. US Yields 10-year rates were down over 7 bps to 1.41% before closing at 1.443% before recovring to 1.468% now. Asian Markets – Equities – Topix and Nikkei are currently up 0.4%, the Hang Seng bounced 1.1% and the CSI 300 is up 0.1%. The ASX, which outperformed yesterday, dropped back -0.3%. Data over night – Japan’s manufacturing PMI came in stronger than expected and while China’s private PMI reading signalled stagnation at 49.9, that was compensated somewhat by the stronger than expected official manufacturing PMI released yesterday. AUD GDP was not as bad as expected -1.9% vs -2.7% & 0.7% last time. USOil – continues under pressure, down to $64.08 (14-week lows) yesterday – recovered to test $68.00 today – expectations continue to grow that OPEC+, will put on hold plans to add 400,000 barrels per day (bpd) of supply in January at their meeting tomorrow.

European Open – December 10-yr Bund future down -11 ticks at 172.26, slightly outperforming versus Treasury futures. Central bankers may be getting more nervous about inflation outlook, but Omicron clearly is clouding over growth outlook & in Europe at least that will boost the arguments of the cautious camp at the central banks. US yields remain firmly below the levels seen before the new virus variant hit the headlines & sentiment is likely to remain jittery, even if stocks are set to back up from yesterday’s lows, with DAX & FTSE 100 future posting gains of 0.9% and 0.7% respectively & a 1.4% jump in the NASDAQ leading US futures higher. Data releases today kicked off with a big miss for German Retail sales (-0.3% vs 1.0%), higher UK house prices & firmer CPI from CHF.

    • Date : 30th November 2021. Market Update – November 30– Stocks at ups & downs. Omicron remains in focus and warnings that it will leave current vaccines far less effective and that it will take time to modify and produce new ones has seen markets adjusting growth forecasts and central bank projections.   USD (USDIndex 96.00 up from 95.92 low) saw a fresh wave of risk aversion as Treasuries sold off, but cautiously with only a modest back up in yields, & Stocks bounced significantly with the USA100 jumping over 2% intraday with IT a big winner. It closed with a 1.88% gain, with the USA500 1.3% firmer, and the USA30 up 0.68%. Wall Street stocks closed higher as investors were hopeful that the Omicron coronavirus variant would not lead to lockdowns after reassurance from US President Joe Biden. Moderna’s CEO told the FT that existing vaccines will be less effective and that it may take months before modified vaccines are available at scale. #Moderna +12.73% yesterday. US Yields 10- and 30-year rates were up just over 3 bps to 1.51% and 1.859%, respectively, with the 2-year 1bps higher at 0.508% The 10-year is currently corrected -3.9 bp to 1.46%, but it is still in negative territory, at -1.05% on Tuesday, keeping gold’s opportunity cost low. Equities – Topix and Nikkei are down -1.0% and -1.6% respectively, Hang Seng lost -2.3%, the CSI 300 -0.6%, while the ASX outperformed with a modest gain of 0.2%.

DAX and FTSE 100 futures are down -1.5% and -1.1% respectively, while a -1.1% drop in the Dow Jones is leading US futures lower. In FX markets both EUR and GBP gained against the Dollar. EGB yields had moved higher against the background of improving risk appetite and a jump in German inflation yesterday, but while Eurozone HICP today is likely to exceed forecasts, central bankers have already been out in force to play down the importance of the number for the central bank outlook and rate expectations. Virus developments will also help to take the sting out of the number. Today – German labour market data, EU Inflation, Canadian GDP and US Consumer confidence are due today. Fed Chair Jerome Powell and Treasury Secretary Janet Yellen are due to testify before the US Senate Banking Committee at 15:00 GMT. Biggest FX Mover @ (07:30 GMT) AUDJPY (-0.68%) Risk-sensitive currencies slid and safe havens gained. AUDJPY dropped to 80 lows (S2).

    • Date : 29th November 2021. Market Update – November 29 – Omicron dominates sentiment. USD (USDIndex 96.30) recovers from Fridays slump (95.98), Stocks lost over –2.2% in thin half-day trading, Oil FUTS lost –13%, Gold slumped and Yields tanked (10-yr 1.482%) on a safe haven (JPY & CHF bid) risk off day. (and a strange carry trade bid for EUR). Weekend news, as Countries block flights and tighten restricts, but first Omicron cases in SA appear mild and hospitalizations have not spiked, has seen a bounce in sentiment and Asian markets. Pfizer suggested it would take 100 days to adapt new vaccine, if required. US Yields 10yr trades up 5.1 bp at 1.52%, after Friday’s slump. Equities – tanked in thin and short day on Friday USA500 -106.84 (-2.27%) at 45941 – USA500.F trades higher at 4639. USOil – collapsed to $67.08 – now up nearly $4 at $71.00. OPEC+ have delayed this weeks meeting by 2 days & likely to delay planned January production increases. Gold spiked under $1780, has bounced to $1795 but struggles to recoup $1800   FX markets – EURUSD now 1.1270, after a +125pip rally on Friday, USDJPY now 113.36, from 115.50 to 113.00 on Friday & Cable back to 1.3325. Overnight – JPY Retail Sales recover but miss expectations (0.9% vs 1.2% & -0.5% last time). European Open – The December 10-year Bund future is down -27 ticks, US futures are also in the red & the US 10-year rate is up 5.1 bp at 1.52%. Stock markets remained under pressure during the Asian part of the session, but DAX and FTSE 100 futures are up 1.2% and 1.3% respectively and a 1.2% rise in the NASDAQ is leading US futures higher. A part reversal of Friday’s flows then as virus developments remain in focus. Travel restrictions are making a come back and the services sector in particular is facing fresh pain, but as Lagarde suggested over the weekend, the impact of Omicron is unlikely to throw economies back to the situation at the start of the pandemic, meaning the overall situation has not really changed. We continue to see the ECB on course to end PEPP purchases on time in March next year, although developments will add to the arguments of those who want to keep the flexibility on the distribution of asset purchases at least for future emergencies. The BoE meanwhile may be postponing the planned rate hike into next year. Today – German regional and national CPIs, Eurozone Consumer Confidence (final), US Pending Home Sales, ECB’s de Guindos, Schnabel, Lagarde, Fed’s Williams, Powell. Biggest FX Mover @ (07:30 GMT) CADCHF (1.00%) The risk-off collapse on Friday 0.7400-0.7200 has recovered to 0.7280.
