Hi TS

I could help you set up a system. Very easy to do given your parameters.. BUT...

Your account will be cleared out.

Crossover systems works very well in a trending market. Lots of moolah.. But in a sideways market you will find multiple crossovers that will lose you money on each leg. I have backtested numerous crossover systems on multiple timeframes and with different parameters, and they ALL lose money in the longer term. NO EXCEPTIONS!

So forget that dream. It does not work. Trust me on this one. Do not say that you were not warned.

K

100% correct, also the spread will help kill you!

Hi guys, I'm just a little guy, a beginner. I would like to know if anyone in here would like to like help me create a trading algorithm, just a simple automated trading strategy please please please, pretty please. I want to try to create something that buys on a 13/48 EMA crossover to the upside, and short on the down. Just that simple, I'm new to trading and would just like to see how that works.

Africa will never be regarded as adult until all of its organisations stop admiring and protecting criminal dictators.

MSM et al presents (sponsored) opinion as fact and seeks to indoctrinate. Journalists without ethics proliferate in a swamp of filthy lucre (BBC inclusive).

In response to decades of racism by fearful minority whites called apartheid there will be an eternity of racism by revengeful majority blacks called all kinds of excuses.

Corruption is not yet compulsory but it may as well be - Aggressive africanization uses the racist Employment Equity Act as a club.

Too many humans are too busy copulating to bother about the irresponsible, unsustainable and progressively catastrophic population explosion. 

Whilst humanity prevails so will evil. Evil will survive and thrive through sophisticated indoctrination and other conscience-suppressing disguises.

Desmond Tutu has been praying for the downfall of the ANC since 2011. Clearly he needs some assistance with such a difficult and worthy task..

hope you have a good bank balance you are going to need it. first what program you using and second the killer is the spread. the problems come in with what you don't see in the charts, the line cross is not always one event and can be 30 events in a very short space of time, depending on when you buy the share, in trading hours or after hours you can loose big time and very fast. 

 

what you are looking for is exceptionally difficult to get right, the market also causes problems, one system works well in bull and not in bear, and a sideways market just wipes you out no matter what system you play. a better strategy is to try and refine the process so that you have far less trades but each trade you do take has a better chance to deliver a profit.

 

so with the line cross what is MACD doing, where is the RSI and what is the overall trend, all that and you will still only get 70 percent to convert to cash.

 

the bottom line is this is definitely not simple and also not something you want try with real money until you are quite sure your system works.

 

otoh, KISS?

 

if you gonna play ma crossovers (the most basic of trending systems), the mentioned series is tops.

 

'snot important what sw you use, ass long it is reliable and give you direct access to the 'real' market. going with what used to be known as 'bucket shops' has pros and many cons...

 

if you serious, hang around awhile, advice is only a click away  :lol:  :lol:

yes, i did check. it has a fair validity, imo.

 

this last one was the 'supermoon' for the year, fwiw.

 

bottom line is, if the system makes sense to you (and comes out positive on backtesting), stick to it religiously. almost 'anything' can be used as the underlying basis for a system. Years ago used an alternative system based on the Golden String. Underlying premise was that "prices fluctuate'. never lost on any month-to-month timeframe...

 

btw - if i ever offer my system for sale? RUN as hard you can :lol:  :lol:

I still use the golden sting to find the bottom of a down turn. don't find it accurate enough for day or couple of day trading.

so you read up a bit? good!

 

anything under 15mins on that will get you whipsawed - seems profitable on the longer time-frames. on the indexes is better, only works on select (generally trending) individual stocks. can't help with automation, maybe others here can?

 

wanna try it and report back?

Seems that if a move went noticeable as expected with previous moon then a good chance to see next one work also.

But there are unpredictable "inversions" which can upset any sceptic almost as much as I upset HDB  ;)

Have a chart...

I thought so! Your memory is so bad you cannot even recollect that it was 2nd Sept.

I recommend medical help asap.

ito of likely outcomes, the DOW may not close green - where, then, do we go from there?
 
not knocking you. you make VERY confident calls and i reserve the right to be on the other side of those ;)

stand aside or follow the current trend, sideways is also a trend and washes out many
