Topic: Week Closing contra Week Closing 2
I have generated a strategy which uses Week Closing as Closing Point of the Position and this generated strategy gives potentially good results. When I tested this strategy on an Alpari account using FST, FST program didn’t succeed in closing an opened position at the end of the week (yesterday!) – the Alpari system didn’t accept the request to close the position.
So I went back to FSB and tried to change my strategy by replacing Week Closing with Week Closing 2. The only difference – as I can see – between those two is that Week Closing 2 has parameter which allows you to choose closing time during Friday – I planned to move it forward few hours. And here comes my surprise – when I exchanged Week Closing with Week Closing 2, FSB showed that the strategy changed from making good money to total loss. I have tried to adjust Week Closing 2 towards Week Closing by changing the closing time, without any positive result – same loss.
I printed out journals from both situations (Journals by Positions without Transfers). I found out that it doesn’t matter if I will change closing time parameter in Week Closing 2 – it always closes positions at 20.00 anyway.
So - what can be the reason for this strange behavior? (I am using FSB 220.127.116.11)
Probably, I don’t understand difference between Week Closing and Week Closing 2. In FSB Pro there is a warning message about Week Closing 2 “This indicator is designed to be used in the trader. It works as Week Closing indicator in the backtester.” – this explanation is not making me wiser. Could someone explain the difference between those two?
