Choosing the Right Forex Indicator for Forex Trading Success

A Forex Indicator is a Technical Indicator which is typically placed immediately above, below or overlayed on a Forex price chart. Forex Indicators are designed to assist the active trader in identifying reliable trade entry and exits points.

Three primary indicator functions:

Alert of a specific condition

Confirm a specific condition against another indicator

Predict the future price action of a market

Many Forex Indicators are made freely available by Forex Brokers as part of their service offering, typically in Meta Trader (MT4 or MT5) format.

If you are a trader (or would-be trader) interested in on-line trading, TradeStation is a platform that you should consider evaluating. Not only does it allow online trading in commodities, futures and equities, it also allows you to create online trading and investment strategies that can be back tested. Trading or investment ideas are two-a-penny. Finding an investment idea that is profitable is not quite so easy.

Whether you wish to trade forex (currency trading or foreign exchange trading), equity (stocks) or commodities, learning to develop online trading programs using TradeStation EasyLanguage will enable you to rapidly develop tools to help your online trading or investment activities. In addition, one of the major benefits of TradeStation is its ability to back test trading strategies.

Time and again I read trading magazines promoting trading techniques and see tools for sale that, at first glance, look to be highly profitable. With TradeStation you can be sure that techniques are potentially profitable without risking money. By developing a TradeStation strategy you can back test the strategy using historical price data and discover the sort of results you might achieve in the future. Of course, historical data is not necessarily going to give you exactly the results that you would get moving forward (or what you would have gotten in the past) but it is a whole lot better than just taking someones word for the profitability of an investment or trading idea.

The following free tutorials provide a simple introduction to TradeStations EasyLanguage using a mixture of detailed instructions, screen prints, and videos.

My next little project is to create an EasyLanguage extender by creating a virtual trading function. The Turtle System always waits until a losing trade prior to taking a new trade. In EasyLanguage this doesnt exist. This is similar to my Ghost Trader in Building Winning Trading Systems with TradeStation (1st and 2nd edition.)

In order to virtualize theoretical positions you must have the ability to enter/exit long/short positions. To carry this out we will create four functions:

TradeStation Strategy Testing Tool allows any trader to backtest their trading ideas to see if the trading ideas are viable for discretionary trading and/or automated trading. This TradeStation Strategy Testing Tool works on any time based chart all without doing any EasyLanguage programming.

Many traders use discretionary entries but lack a viable way to backtest their discretionary trading rules. Until now, you have been stuck with the time consuming task of entering all your trade entry and trade exit data into a spreadsheet just to get a net profit or loss amount.

This TradeStation Strategy Testing Tool provides the ultimate solution. The trader just uses the text tool and types right on the trading chart; "L" for long trade, "S" for sellshort trade, and "F" for going flat. The strategy re-creates all your historical trades for you right on your trading chart. With one button click you'll have a complete performance report available to analyze your TradeStation strategy ideas.

Another application for the TradeStation Strategy Testing Tool is to mark only your discretionary entries and then testing different automated exit strategies, you can backtest those exit strategies with your discretionary entries to discover which exit strategies work best.

This TradeStation Strategy Testing Tool delivers the full power of TradeStation strategy testing and optimization to traders to test any trading ideas without requiring any EasyLanguage programming.

Watch the HD full screen webinar-video named "TradeStation Strategy Testing Tool" to see how easy we test a brand new trading entry idea using our Multiple Time Frame Price Action Indicator using the TradeStation Strategy Testing Tool. After our first phase of strategy testing, we add a second entry rule and quickly test the results of adding this rule. In three stages of testing we triple the number of trades in the test sample up to 92 trades. Watch now to see the results for yourself.

Using the TradeStation Strategy Testing Tool any trader can quickly do strategy testing of any trading idea on any time frame based chart and walk through multiple stages of testing and development ALL without doing any EasyLanguage programming.

TRADESTATION: MARCH 2015

In “Trading System Design: A Statistical Approach” in this issue, authors John Ehlers Ric Way outline a procedure for the development of trading systems using a statistical approach. In the article, they create a set of data that they analyze using Microsoft Excel spreadsheet software. They have provided TradeStation EasyLanguage code for an indicator to help create the data for analysis, as well as a simple test strategy to demonstrate the process.

To download the EasyLanguage code, please visit our TradeStation and EasyLanguage support forum. The code for this article can be found here: tradestation/TASC-2015. and is also shown below. The ELD filename is “_TASC_StatisticalApproach. ELD.”

For more information about EasyLanguage in general, please see tradestation/EL-FAQ.

In their article in this issue, “Trading System Design: A Statistical Approach,” authors John Ehlers Ric Way outline a statistically valid procedure for the successful development of trading systems, providing a testbed for assessing whether the price will increase or decrease over n bars after an event.

From our point of view, it might be optimal to prove the conclusion regarding the robustness of the example system by using a different subset of data that includes a bear market, given that the in-sample period of 10 years used to optimize the system on was a strong bull market (Figure 3).

Easylanguage vs. C++

Anyone experience with both programming languages in order to develop + backtest trading systems? I'm not an expert in programming and hence I guess EL would be more appropriate, but I'm concerned that it does not allow enough freedom in parameter specifications.

Joined Nov 2004

If you are not a programmer, then unless you are prepared to put in a lot of work (and I mean a lot) then it would be much better to stick to TS or WL etc.

It also depends on what you want to do eg if you just want to produce some trading signals for the eminis then rolling your own may not be such a burden. Excel may be a possibility though it's not my cup of tea. There are TA libs available for Excel that will give you all the common indicators - even a free one I think.

In any case, unless you are a C++ programmer and really want to employ that experience, there is little justification in choosing C++ over Java or if you really must have a MS environment C#. In most cases software written in C/C++ will take longer to develop and certainly longer to debug. I you are starting from scratch, I guarantee that C++ will take longer to learn.

Having said all that, I think there are big advantages in rolling your own platform. Whether they are big enough to justify the work involved is another issue which one can only decide for oneself.

I have chosen to develop my own platform in Java for backtesting/system development/trading, and I think that it delivers in an integrated package what you would need several commercial packages to deliver eg good EOD technical market scanner - maybe equivalent to stockfetcher. trading system backtesting with any number of instruments per system, able to handle multiple time frame time series, genetic optimiser, charting (including real time snapshot charts - I'm working on the scrolling bit). It also does account level simulations ie the ability to simulate multiple trading systems in the one account and optimise capital allocation between systems or reallocate capital automatically depending on market conditions. There is also trading automation for integration with IB.

It has been a lot of work, but the freedom provided by a proper programming language is a huge plus. When all is said and done, I think the effort will be worth it.

I initially started work on this because I tried the 'backtesting' facilities in Esignal and rapidly came to the conclusion that it's rubbish (in fact a joke) for system development (nice charts though).

Without trying to start wars over programming languages, I would suggest that Java is a verg good choice for this sort of thing for many reasons

1. Free and very well documented with plenty of tutorial material available for free on the net. It is not necessary to spend a penny on software, books etc.

2. Fast enough. C/C++ may be faster but in nearly all cases fixing/optimising algorithms and/or data structures will yield far greater performance improvements than switching languages. I'd expect C# and Java to be roughly similar.

3. Cross platform. Java/Linux (or Java/Solaris) are very stable (and secure) environments for a trading platform. (Also free). If you must, Windows is also satisfactory.

4. A lot of quality free stuff available eg I use the JFreeChart libs for charts. This is more than adequate for building charts of good quality. JGap for a genetic algorithm library. Dislin for 3D optimisation surface visualisation. Jdom for handling XML. etc etc

5. Leading edge. You can now get 64 bit Linux for the new(ish) AMD chips and a 64bit JVM from Sun. If you want performance for heavy number crunching for backtesting / optimising / scanning, I expect this combination - especially with the Athlon Socket 939 or 940 processors - will easily outperform anything in the Windows world and be light years ahead of the likes of TS or WL.

6. A truly robust underlying programming environment. With WL or TS you are dependent on it having the capabilities you need and being robust and reliable. Without being in any way critical of WL or TS or other such environment they are much more likely to be buggy than Java or for the simple reason that there are many, many more developers in the latter environments. There are bound to be fewer serious bugs in the latter.

Auto trading strategy

Auto trading strategyTrading Software which Support EasyLanguage®

M ost of the trading strategy source code I write here are using the EasyLanguage ®. This blog provides some information of the software that is currently available to support this language.  

EasyLanguage® originally developed by Tradestation in order to make the programming language for trading algorithm looks easier for most of the trader which may comes from various background. This language has gain popularity as an trading standard along with other industrial standard like MetaStock Formula Language, Meta Quote Language (MQL), etc.

Currently there are quite number of trading software that are developed to support this trading language. Here are the list of the current software I know

This is a trading platform which support three languages: Pro Trader Language (PTL), Meta Quote Language (MQL), and EasyLanguage. It has also a nice graphical and charting interface.

Optimization on the Run

O ptimization is a way of maximizing your trading strategy to produce the maximum profit.

In our trading strategy, optimization usually done before we enter into real trade. However this approach only relies on the past historical data. When the market condition are changing then the optimized parameters may no longer to be valid again. So you need to optimized the parameter again in order to make your indicator best fitted to the current market. In practical case, periodical parameter optimization is actually necessary after the trading is running over a certain period of time. However this optimization requires the trading to be stopped and someone must personally do optimization. Optimization can be a very long process and consume a lot time.

Actually optimization is a simple loop code to find the highest profit output from a given set of input parameter. In other words the input given is actually a set of incremental value that fed up to the respective trading indicator calculation in order to produce maximum profit. So we can automates this optimization procedure  easily by inserting this simple incremental loop calculation toward your trading strategy and execute this optimization procedure periodically. This procedure will enhance your code and of course the performance of your real time trading. So you are no longer need to stop your trading in order to optimize your trading strategy. We can do this optimization on the run, which mean you optimized your strategy at the same time you are trading it.

However understand that the optimization may cause a lot of calculation loop and may decrease your computer performance. So you can’t implement this on the real-time day trading basis, unless you have super computer and your trading platform has the multi threading capacity in order to calculate the optimization on the background while you are trading at the same time. So I suggest to use this optimization on-the-run only for end of the day data analysis, and be careful not to run your optimization too frequently because it actually is meaningless and exhausting computer performance. The best optimization should be done within periodical time may be weekly or monthly basis during market close. Or you may use some indicators to detect the market changes and run the optimization based on the market changes period.  

OK, contact me if you are able to write the optimization code on the run inside your trading strategy. Let your money work “smartly” for you!

Learn Advanced Trading Algorithms Hands On

Algorithmic Trading Systems is a continuation of Seven Trading Systems for the SP Futures published in 2010. The book starts by discussing additional market setups for trading gaps and how to trade gaps in 24 hour markets. In Chapter 4, the author reveals a new pattern and shows hot to trade the gap once it has been filled showing how this pattern can be traded on the E-mini SP, DAX, Euro Currency, and Crude Oil. he further discusses how to modify the strategy to trade multiple contracts and how to test multiple trend filters in the same strategy.

This book is written with a straight forward approach in revealing open code trading systems. It is not full of theory and complex formulas but written for those who want hands on strategy specific examples from professional traders on how to develop trading systems. The open code is revealed in NinjaTraders NinjaScript C# as well as Tradestations EasyLanguage, which aslo translates well into MultiCharts PowerLanguage. The companion website includes the open code available for download as well as instructional videos. He also takes the time out to discuss Important Trading System Principles that can take traders many years to learn and understand based on the contrary nature of the market as well as misinformation and a general misunderstanding of well known trading rules. He challenges popular Wall Street axioms such as, You cant go broke taking profits and Dont let a winning trade turn into a losing trade.

Trading strategy matlab code

Trading strategy matlab codeThere are no invited users

Description First, I need to translate a stock trading strategy from TradeStation EasyLanguage to run on Matlab

In total, the strategy is around 50 pages of code. Approximately 10% of the code is used for the actual trading strategy (trade entries and exits). The remaining 90% of code is used to calculate results of variables used for testing and exporting these testing variables to CSV files.

Code for entries and exits is not basic. Entries and exits use limit orders and convert to market orders after a required number of ticks. The strategy has three options for exits including, stop, profit target, and parabolic trail

Hopefully, much of the strategy translation can be done with edit/replace commands (TradeStation EasyLanguage is very similar to Matlab and C++). However, some code will probably need to be re-written

Second, I need to establish communication from the Matlab strategy to a TradeStation web API. I have the codes and instructions provided by TradeStation to connect to their new API

Third, I will need help changing my current strategy from trading one stock at a time to run on many stock symbols at one time

Fourth, my strategy uses a simple pattern recognition approach. I could also use advice on other approaches to finding tradeable patterns.

Experience Required:

Must have practical experience in working with algorithmic trading systems including: Look inside back testing, limit orders, in-sample/out-of-sample testing, genetic optimizers, challenges of excessive curve fit in algorithmic strategies

Must have practical experience with Matlab and Matlab gentic optimizer tools. Must have practical experience in connection to broker web API from Matlab including: receiving data (up to tick level), sending orders, confirming global variable such as trade profit, entry price, and bars since entry.

I dont have tradestation, so I modified a spreadsheet I have to test out your model. I tested from 5/22/08-2/8/13 (as thats what my other models dates were). I did a very basic test just buying at the close when the Double7 said to, but didnt use any ATR. All trades used all the account capital, so gains are compounded and I just bought/sold the SP500 index (so similar to SPY). Results are below along with buy/hold, and whats interesting is if you take out 2008 buy/hold is better for most years. I wonder if a simple model of buy/hold and just getting out of the market if SP500 is below the 200 day moving average is just as good.

Vwap(indicator)

Vwap(indicator)VWAP (Indicator)

Value of low alert.

Market Synopsis

The VWAP (Volume Weighted Average Price)  is a measure of the price at which the majority of a given day's trading in a given security took place. It is calculated by adding the dollars traded for the average price of the bar throughout the day ("avgprice" x "number of shares traded" per bar) and dividing by the total shares traded for the day.

The VWAP value is calculated throughout the day by the TradeStation data-network and is a snapshot field available only in RadarScreen (Quotes).

The indicator requires a security with trade volume.

The indicator value is reset every day.

VWAP  is sometimes used by institutional traders, who often break up a given trade into multiple transactions. The theory is that if the average price of a long trade is lower than the VWAP, it is a good trade. The opposite is true for short trades, average price should be higher than the VWAP.

NOTE: There is a historical VWAP indicator available from the Support Center>Trading Strategy Forums>EasyLanguage Library, that be can plotted on a 1 minute chart.
