This is a early version of a swing trading indicator I have been working on. It uses EMAs and ADX
to find entries. This will eventually be integrated into my main trading indicator. The strategy is defaulted to start with 17,000 capital and trade with 100 percent of equity. You can test different ranges of dates by going into the settings and changing the end dates of the backtest. It is defaulted to test from 1/1/2018 to the current time. Keep in mind if you keep it set to use 100% equity it will not be able to enter positions if the initial capital is less than the price of 1 bitcoin
-3.31% at the beginning of the test range. It currently has a pretty low success rate, but the average winning trade is significantly larger than the average losing trade so it still makes a significant profit. This has only been tested so far on the 15 minute and 30 minute charts for Bitfinex:BTCUSD.
The end goal for this indicator is to allow me to enter long term future positions to hold while I trade swaps on the short and medium term. This will allow me to increase profits.
This strategy will be changing significantly in the future as I test various ideas and setting configurations to maximize the effectiveness, but feel free to use it however you want.
My main indicator is currently in beta and will be finished before this one
is completed, so if you want a solid indicator to trade with in the immediate future, I suggest checking that one
Please comment or direct message me if you have any questions of critiques, I will always respond within 24 hours. If you find out anything interesting while testing the strategy I would also appreciate it if you dropped me a message letting me know.
