2 Moving Averages | Trend Following

The trading system is a trend-following strategy based on two moving averages (MA) and Parabolic SAR (PSAR) indicators.

How it works:

  • The strategy uses two moving averages: a fast MA and a slow MA.
  • It checks for a bullish trend when the fast MA is above the slow MA and the current price is above the fast MA.
  • It checks for a bearish trend when the fast MA is below the slow MA and the current price is below the fast MA.
  • The Parabolic SAR (PSAR) indicator is used for additional trend confirmation.
  • Long and short positions can be turned on or off based on user input.
  • The strategy incorporates risk management with stop-loss orders based on the Average True Range (ATR).
  • Users can filter the backtest date range and display various indicators.
  • The strategy is designed to work with the date range filter, risk management, and user-defined positions.
