IMPORTANT!!! MAKE SURE "RECALCULATE AFTER ORDER FILLED" IS CHECKED. I will have it on by default in the future.
This is a continuation of my previous scripts of two indicators with a indicator.
- Alternate time interval
You can now set the time interval for the second indicator to a different resolution than the displayed chart.
Uncheck the box and select the desired interval. For example, if your chart is set to 15min then first will be set at 15 min and you can select 5 min for the second .
- Alternate StoRSI time interval
You can (and should) set the StochRSI to a different time interval as well. StochRSI hasn't worked great with previous versions. Now you can set it to a different time resolution as well. I strongly recommend you set it at a higher (slower) resolution; for example if your chart is set at 15min then you should test setting the StochRSI at 30 or 45min.
- 'True" StochRSI logic
Trading logic for StochRSI is now a true StochRSI, instead of just reading "k" and ignoring "d", K now has to be greater than D to buy and less than to sell.
A primitive but low risk safety in the form of an uptrend/downtrend price safety. If current close+high isn't greater than the previous close and high then the buy order will not be executed. The same applies for sell orders.
- Cap on losses from short positions
A stop loss safety set to 9000 for exiting sell positions. This will need refinement in the future but this puts a cap on losses from any sell position. At an initial currency of 10,000 this translates to 90.00. If it is giving you problems simply delete line 78 from the source code.
Please feel free to ask any questions or send me suggestions. This is still very much a work in progress and I'll try to polish up the rough spots but it is fully functional. With a slower StochRSI and the safeties I have gotten it to consistently outperform the old 2x strategy script---typically by 3-fold.
