RSI-ATR Divine Strategy (Backtesting)

mortdiggiddy Updated   
Live, non-repainting strategy using ATR and RSI mixed together to multiple types of long and short positions.

- Features -

  • Live entry direction with trade warnings and alerts
  • Live trade building buy and sell stops (for buy/sell stop limits)
  • Entry location icons as well as pyramid entries (to add to existing position)
  • 2 separate targets based on the ATR setting and entry location
  • 1 scalp target based on the ATR setting and entry location
  • 2 separate trailing stops, 1 for "absolute stop" and 1 for "scalp trades"
  • Alert conditions for every update and condition change of the strategy (Provided by indicator study)
  • 4 pre-built color themes, including candlestick coloring

This strategy is best used with my RSI Shaded Indicator using the identical RSI settings.

The linked script is identical and used solely for alerts, because Trading View still after 3 years of requesting does not provide the ability to use alert conditions inside a strategy script, only an indicator script. This strategy should be used to backtest your settings.

The approach to this strategy uses several parallel trades of different types. In order to generate multiple trade types the "pyramid trades" setting of the strategy (second tab of the settings that lets you adjust the number of pyramid contracts) should be used.

- Trade Types -

  • Swing: This trade is entered on the solid arrows after the RSI has become oversold or overbought. It is key that all trades wait for some degree of pullback before entering, even after the trend flips between positive and negative. This trade is held until stopped out or an opposite trade is triggered that reverses the position.
  • Target: These trades are entered at both the initial swing trade, or any subsequent pyramid/greedy trades that present themselves along the way while the trend remains in the same direction. The difference between these trades and the swing trade is that they have targets calculated as: Target = +/- * ATR. Until the target price is reached it does not change. When exceeded the next target trade will have a new target price.
  • Scalp: These trades have a limit buy/sell entry and a target. The target is very similar to the ATR Multiplier calculation for Target trades, but uses the instead.

Turning on/off the different trade types (strategy only) is simple done by decreasing the number of contracts used for that trade type to zero. When the quantity is set to zero, that trade is not considered.

- Session -

The session filter is used to narrow trade executions by only allowing trades that are inside the session boundaries. This can be used to isolate the London or New York session for example. The default is 24 x 7 which filters no trades (Trading View has a bug when resetting this, so simply reset the indicator to get it back to 24x7).

All feature requests or bug reports are welcome either by direct messaging or comments on this page or the linked indicator page.

  • Toggle swing trades and scalp trades on/off is now possible. To turn off swing and target trades, change the quantity of swing, target1, target2 to zero. To turn off scalp trades, change the scalp quantity to zero.
  • Fixed locations where an existing trade active, but an opposite trade is building.
Release Notes:
  • Updating color themes.
  • Added trailing stop ATR multiplier. Previously the trailing long is updated each time the minor trend flips back in the direction of the major trend. For a long, the stop update would be something on the order of: stop = Maj_Trend - Min_ATR_Mult * ATR. The ATR multiplier used now will be the stop multiplier so that the function is exclusive: stop = Maj_Trend - Stop_ATR_Mult * ATR. This helps with the ability to both specify the minor ATR multiplier while not affecting the sensitivity of the stop. As always after a swing long/short is initiated, if the Major Trend flips, the stop will be updated to the rounded tick value below or above the candle that caused it to flip.

  • Added Multiple Timeframe (MTF) aspect to the Major/Minor ATR Supertrend stops. These run without accessing the security() function and are very robust. The Major and Minor trends will operate independent of the chart interval when the chart interval is is less than the desired MTF interval. By default the check box "Always use chart interval instead?" is selected to lock the ATR Supertrend intervals to the chart interval. Uncheck this box and input a desired interval of choice greater than or equal to the chart interval to experience the MTF aspect.
