Open Close Cross Strategy

Revision: 1

Description:
  • Strategy based around Open-Close Crossovers, which can be tuned for smooth trend trading, or with a little care even work for choppy waters .
Setup:
  • I have generally found that setting the strategy resolution to 3-4x that of the chart you are viewing tends to yield the best results, regardless of which MA option you may choose (if any)
  • Don't aim for perfection. Just aim to get a reasonably snug fit with the O-C band, with good runs of green and red.
  • Option to either use basic open and close series data, or pick your poison with a wide array of MA types.
  • Optional trailing stop for damage mitigation if desired (can be toggled on/off)
  • Positions get taken directly following a crossover - which is why it's better to set the resolution of the script greater than that of your chart, so that the trades get taken sooner rather than later.
  • If you make use of the trailing stops, be sure to take your time tweaking the values. Cutting it too fine may cost you profits but keep you safer, while letting them loose could lead to more drawdown than you can handle.
