Dual MA Ribbons R0.13
It is now a blank template for making new strategies / alerts for autoview
The changes are as follows:
- Removed actual algo
- Establish functions for long Signal, long Close Signal and short Signal, short Close Signal to minimize the places code must be edited to update / replace algos
- Make allow Long and allow short and invert trade directions independent options
- Added support for alternate candle types
- Added autoset backtest period feature, and optional coloring
- Moved strategy calls in to functions so they can all be commented out or activated / disabled in a single block at the top of the script
THIS IS THE BACKTEST VERSION, BUT IT IS THE SAME AS THE ALERTS WITH DIFFERENT COMMENT / UNCOMMENT.
- Extensive Clean up and bug fixes
- Enabled testPeriod to be used to limit Alerts too
- You can completely switch between Strategy and Alerts with a single Comment / Uncomment of the blocks at the top
- Added a trivial strategy so it works out of the box.
- Renamed to Simple Template 1.00
This crossover strategy is just a place holder.
This is really just a template for you to build your own strategy for backtesting.
And then to run with autoview.
I included the crossover strategy so it would work out of the box and you'd
have simple example code to modify.
It does however provide a lot of flexibility for what you build, and it is very easy to switch between Strategy and Alerts. You can completely switch between Strategy and Alerts with a single Comment / Uncomment of the blocks at the top of the script and have confidence that the script will run the same in both states.
Other than that you should only need to edit code in the section: between
// BEGIN ACTUAL STRATEGY
// END ACTUAL STRATEGY
It supports Renko and HA candles (please take care with both to understand
what you are actually backtesting). See notes in code.
It supports Multiple Timeframes (via a multiplier)
It can be long only short only or both. You can specify different Long Close and Short Open (and Short Close / Long Open) conditions or let them be the same.
In fact you define your whole strategy by just setting those 4 variables.
You can set specific time periods to backtest (or to run the alerts)
Support for various stops:
- Trailing Stop, with Activate Level (as % of price) and Trailing Stop (as % of price)
- Target Profit Level, (as % of price)
- Stop Loss Level, (as % of price)
Keep the good work! Cheers
