Topic: Very Simple strategy with three MA's

Hello everybody, I'm xaalegret  wink

I'm new in this forum, I would like salute you!

(Please excuse me for my poor english, my mother language is the spanish)

I have a very simple strategy but I don't know how to program it in FSB (Can you help me, please?):

It's based only on three moving averages:

- 1 MA of 5 periods (the fastest)
- another MA of 13 periods (medium speed)
- another one of 34 periods (slowest MA)

The rules are:

-Enter at the market when the 5MA crosses the 34MA (long or short)
-Exit the position when the 5MA crosses the 13MA
-Always enter at the open of the next bar to cross

I have a little backtesting (manually implemented) and it's like a good strategy (I've tested in GPBUSD 4H only)

Please can you help me?

Very thanks! smile

Popov, very thanks, I try to program it now!  smile

See you!!!

Re: Very Simple strategy with three MA's

Dear Mr. Popov

I tried to test this strategy, but I think that short entries are not included, aren't it?

How could I include both strategies (short and long) simultaneously?

I tried to do it manually, but it didn't work, (both strategies nullify each other)

Thank you very much smile

Re: Very Simple strategy with three MA's

The short entries are mirrored to the long ones. You don't need entering short entries.

The rule: Moving Averages Crossover   The Fast MA crosses the Slow MA upward
Means also Enter short when Fast MA crosses below Slow MA.

You can see the long / short rules for every strategy in the strategy overview window.

For an individual indicator you can see the rules by clicking the info icon (i) in the upper right corner of the indicator dialog window.

Please explain for me, while not open the Strategy Builder long position 23:21? On the picture You see, that  soon on 23:20 the fast moving averege line is 1 pip higher as the slow.

Thanks

Re: Very Simple strategy with three MA's

on 23:20 the fast moving averege line is 1 pip higher as the slow

In your data, one pip is 0.0001. In the selected chart bar, the difference between both MAs is 1/10 pips (not 1 pip).

A crossover is triggered when the Fast MA rises more than 1/2 pips above Slow MA.

Notes:
1. The precision of the indicators in the info area is with one digit greater than the price precision.

2. When the indicators are based on "close" price. They have their real values at the end of the bar and the signal can be executed at the beginning of next bar. FSB makes this automatically by setting the "Use previous bar value" parameter of the indicator.

Re: Very Simple strategy with three MA's

Thank You your answer Mr Popov. Now I understand, how work this indikator. Can you write me please, where can I find the detailed description  from each indicator? For example what is the definition  the “DeMarker” indicator? But I would like to find the detailed description from all kind of indicators.
Regards
Miklos
