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.

JayRogers, I try backtest the code but the system said "Order's limit (2000) was reached", and show any backtest resulst..... do you whats wrong with it ??

I gang figure Out how this can be og any use. I Just tested it on bitcoin and it repaints all entrys beyond recognition after they occurred. Dont use it with real money.

This is a brilliant script that is excellent at backtesting.
However, caught in the wrong situation, codes like this will place multiple orders like mad, and then disappear once the window refreshes.
I found this page looking for a solution to my own script. has anyone had any luck with this issue?

@oh92, im in the same boat now LOL. got any suggestions? I'm guessing an if statement to see if open orders recently will work

Has anyone set up an alert system for this?

It has a repainting issue ever basisLen candles
because security(tickerid, res, exp) and probably with the DEMA too.

Hi Jay, an excellent strategy. Thank you very much for sharing. I do have a quick query. I've tried modifying the script not to open short trades and only do longs. I've done this by commenting out the 3 strategy entries relating the the short positions. Unfortunately when I do this I no longer get the sell signal for the long position when the shortCond is met?

Any ideas why this would be the case?

Thanks.

Jay, can you automate trading with this script ?

@Mrgold07, There is a Chrome extension called Autoview meant to automate TV strategies. It works by using TV alerts with a custom syntax in the alert description, so you would need to add an alert condition to the script. Also, Autoview for the most part only supports crypto currency exchanges, although they include 1broker, which I have not personally used but apparently allows you to use BTC to trade certain stocks and FX pairs.
