Crypto Trend Following Strategy

This is the strategy script indicator of Crypto Trend Following Strategy which can be used for back testing. With study script indicator, strategy can be easily automated.

To set alerts, see Crypto Trend Following Study indicator.

Script is using several moving averages to keep you on the right side of the trend. Signals are also filtered based on other indicators to prevent buying already overbought or selling already oversold coins and avoid ranging markets.

Main goal of the strategy is long-term stable profit. No strategy has 100% accuracy therefore there always will be some false signals. But patience pays, with Trend Following Strategy, you will get couple of small loses while waiting to get big wins when coin is trending strongly. As you never know the right time you must sustain and be in all trades to make sure that you will not miss the big move.

This script is for free to play with so you can back test and see for yourself how the strategy performs on any of your favourite coins.
Strategy is optimized and back tested for USDT and BTC pairs on 6h timeframe but it can be used on any pair and any timeframe.

Strategy does not use safety orders as DCAs usually leads to bag holding sooner or later. It does not use take profit either as strategy will tell you when to buy and when to sell based on the actual market condition.
You should always use stop loss to protect your account from drawdown or even being liquidated.
You can change stop loss or take profit as you like or even back test the strategy with your preferred settings to find what suits you best.

You can use the strategy script for fine tuning and find best settings for yourself.
If you need any help with settings do not hesitate to ask. I would also appreciate any feedback and ideas how to improve the script.

I'm new here -- where can I get the script for purposes of backtesting?
Can you add a condition to the alert so that I can set this up with bots?
kapsure kapsure
for example, an alert that will only trigger on sell signals. that way I can program a bot to close a trade whenever it receives the short entry signal-triggered alarm
what is the best setting for 45min charts?
