Aroon Oscillator Strategy

This is simple strategy based on Aroon Oscillator. I have found that using length 144 or 169 on hourly chart shows excellent results.

Tested on SPY , QQQ and AAPL . Especially when you look at AAPL results , it has 60% profitable in recent trades. ( Dont assume this will be same for other stocks or ETFs)

Aroon Oscillator setting : 169 ( 169 is square root of 13 ... you can also use fib level 144 , which is square root of 12 )

When Aroon Oscillator crosses above zero line

if Long position is already opened, and current close is less than BUY price and RSI 13 crossing above 30 line

when Aroon Oscialltor crosses below zero line

Stop Loss
default stop loss has been set to 5%

Note: I have not plotted RSI to the chart. Please include RSI 13 to see how position gets added ... Also add ema 169 to see how the price is aligned with the Aroon Oscillator

For the educational purposes only
Release Notes: I have added another parameter to whether exitOnAroonOscialltor cross down to zero. Since script already has logic to capture partial profits when Osc crossdown below 90, at some point all the long positions will be emptied out.

This will also allow us to stay in the traded by sticking to our stoploss 5% , rather than just exiting on a whipsaw signal.
Release Notes: 1. Stop Loss calculation fixed
2. Entry quantity and Addition quantity calculation has been changed
3. bar color changed to purple when Aroon Oscillator is above 90
4. if Aroon Osc cross down zero setting is selected --- stop loss value is not considered , it simply exits on oscillator crossing below zero line

Does it repaint?

strategy always takes the position after the signal close. So there is no question of repaint
as far as I remember aroon is used for sharp entries and exits.. I tried to make good of it but.. =)

if U want there is aroon single line indicator here on TV.

Aroon oscillator derived from Aroon indicator. When Aroon indicator up line crosses above Aroon down line , oscillator crosses above zero. Vice versa ...

Having higher number of periods generates smooth signals and also keeps well in trending market for long term.

The number I have used is 169 on hourly chart. That means approximately 26 days ( 169 hrs/ 6.5 ). Which is very close to default setting of daily indicator.
