High Low Stats by 30 Minute Periods

Recommended Posts

All,

 

I wrote some code in tradestation and outputted it to Excel.

 

Using 5 minute data on the ES.D I basically calculated the stats that a high or low or either was created in the different time periods.

 

I kept it simple using periods:

 

A is 9:30 to 10

B is 10:01 to 10:30

and so on to

N is 4:01 to 4:15

 

Hope some of you find this helpful.

Why not keep it simple and use 30 minute data on the ES.D (not 5)?

hi dbntina,

 

lets discuss.

 

you can see how the data is skewed such that a key high or low is made in the first 1-2 hours. that is good information as you will not be fighting the key 'bigger-picture' movement for the day if you keep this in mind.

 

but the other question is how often does the market extend such that it chooses a direction and continues in that direction for the rest of the day.

 

for example, can you run the data with a filter in it?

 

ie, if the highest bar for the day came before the lowest bar for the day (high made first), what are the statistics on when the FINAL low will come? which period is the market likely to make its final low?

 

the second case is then, if the lowest bar for the day comes before the highest bar of the day (low made first), what are the statistics on when the FINAL high will come?

 

I have tracked this for the past year and curious if my data lines up with last 5 years. My data shows that there is about a 2 in 3 chance of the FINAL high or low not occuring until after 2:30pm, with actually many occurences not until after 3:30pm.

Frank,

 

I think that is easy for me to run. I will do that and post.

 

Let me make sure I understand:

 

Show a table just like the others that basically shows the period that the opposite high or low forms after the first high or low?

 

I can run that and post if that is what you mean.

right, look back at the day in retrospect and see if 'highestbar>lowestbar' (> means 'after' to Tradestation) or lowestbar>highestbar....

so:

if highestbar>lowestbar, then which 30-min bar was the highestbar made?

 

if lowestbar>highestbar then which 30-min bar was the lowestbar made?

Okay Frank here it is:

 

Same spreadsheet but I have added a 2nd spreadsheet to find out what periods the following corresponding high/low was made if the other was formed first.

 

Enjoy

 

:)

 

Nice update. You might want to add a column to show the cumulative stats, same as in the first one.

Frank,

 

I had it in there initially but deleted it out because it didn't make sense. You would actually probably want to cumulate from the last period forward. It might be confusing to some so I basically left it out.

 

Take it easy,

1 other stat I keep is the final 'high to low' range for the day --- but kept as a ratio vs the range of the first 60-mins. ie, how often is the final range more than 2.0x the range of the initital 60-mins. this 2.0x guideline can sometimes help give a bit of a guideline to help 'see' the structure of the day.

 

dbntina, can you run those stats if you get a chance?

 

total range / initial balance range...

Frank,

 

Yes I think that will be easy and quick. I will try to do that tonite.

 

You are asking basically what % of the time for each day of the week and all days that the high to low range is >= to twice the IB?

 

That should be pretty simple if that is what you are asking.

yes.

 

if its easy, check out what is the actual ratio per day of the week too... ie, 1.89 for Wednesdays vs 1.67 for mondays?

 

thanks dbntina, I am hack programmer -- I can make indicators that do these things and then count them but I don't know how to do statistical research studies like this.

hi dbntina,

 

I have been referencing these stats a lot and they are great.

 

I was wondering if you would be willing to run the same code on an ETF to see if its statistical characteristics are consistent with S&P's.

 

The security is 'EFA' -- which is an extremely popular ETF that tracks all the major international markets. Its very liquid and is interesting because its a foreign ETF and was curious how often foreign indices continue to trend on intraday basis relative to the S&P's.

 

mostly interested in when the FINAL high or low is made (whichever comes LAST)...

 

thanks for any help,

 

frank

Frank,

 

I am glad that is helpful. Unfortunately, I had access to TS because my company had a subcribption. They closed the account and I no longer have access to TS to be able to run any code or anything. Sorry about that. Good trading to everyone,

Brexit: UK given ultimatum to submit Irish border proposals by Sep 30. The focus now turns to central bank decisions in Europe, where BoE and SNB are expected to hold policy unchanged, while Norges Bank could dodge the trend and deliver a hike.

The Libor target was replaced with a key policy rate, but the central bank was adamant that the degree of monetary accommodation remains unchanged. After the ECB cut rates, while the Fed is now widely expected to ease rates, the SNB has little room to manoeuvre, especially against the backdrop of ongoing Brexit uncertainty and geopolitical trade risks. The SNB’s central message remains that the situation remains fragile and the currency “highly valued”.

    • So going through the code... The help I need is to cause the lower bollinger band to stop once the close of the bar is greater than the BB value  and the higher bollinger band to stop once the close of the bar is less than the BB value  Thanks
