Topic: Simple 1h EURUSD strategy

Sometimes when I try different ideas I get very simple strategies. There are only a few trades, but the time in position is 23%.

Some traders think that only simple ideas will play out, not overcomplicated fancy ideas. Simple is beautiful!

Re: Simple 1h EURUSD strategy

Question:

What do you feel to be ideal time in position.....?

I just wonder your views as I don't think there to be a 'right' answer.


*****************************

some investment people use three instances of force index as a preliminary to screening for  their holdings.

My 'secret' goal is to push EA Studio until I can net 3000 pips per day....

Re: Simple 1h EURUSD strategy

If I generate a strategy I try to acieve one of these:

1. trending strategy - exclude sideways market
2. sidweays strategy - exclude trending market

I try to make several exclusions so that the strategy only trade in sideways or trending market not both.

This strategy is just a experiment with Top Bottom Price indicator on previous week bottom.

Re: Simple 1h EURUSD strategy

This is a good example how dangerous is overleveraging. On 1000 EUR accoun the expected drawdown is 2,6%, but changing a lot size from 0.01 to 0.1 will make it 5587, but the drawdonw is 21,6%.

You need 10 000 EUR account to maintain 2,6% drawdown.

Re: Simple 1h EURUSD strategy

I have learned a few times the danger of ignoring risk, much to my detriment

Re: Simple 1h EURUSD strategy

Dear zenoni,

good suggestions, good strategy.
On my FSB this strategy appears with 9118 number of bars, how can I modify it to 29746 as you made?

Re: Simple 1h EURUSD strategy

On FSB menu go to MARKET -> data horizon.

Note! it seems that you don't have such a data available in your FSB. Please check this. http://forexsb.com/wiki/fsb/metatrader_data

Re: Simple 1h EURUSD strategy

Thanks, it works.

On MT4 > F2 I download the history on  for the currency pair, then save the data and modify on FSB menu Market> Data horizon.
