Topic: Automating a strategy from a successful manual trader

Hi everyone, I’m new to the forum I’m writing from Italy! As kindly suggested by Petko I would like to see if anyone would be interested in automating a strategy that I’ve learned from a famous successful trader (don’t wanna exploit his name) who mostly trades manually. Anyway I’ve been wanting to automate it for some time; I tried with a program but was not a good one, and since I’m new to FSB and trading in general I would ideally like to see what you guys think from your experience and share the results in the community. I’m gonna drop it down here so you guys can tell me your opinion, it’s a nice and simple one. Thank you in advance! wink Cheers, Marco

Up trend (long):
- 6 EMA crossing 18 EMA upward
- 6 EMA and 18 EMA are above 50 EMA
- 50 EMA is above 200 SMA

Downtrend trend (short):
- 6 EMA crossing 18 EMA downward
- 6 EMA and 18 EMA are below 50 EMA
- 50 EMA is below 200 SMA

- TP 10 pips (max 11-12 pips recommended)
- SL 8 pips (max 10 pips recommended)
- 1% risk recommended or less

Re: Automating a strategy from a successful manual trader

Probably you would need some other filters, or you will not get a smooth equity curve

You did not mention time frame

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

Re: Automating a strategy from a successful manual trader

Guys thank you so much for your replies! To answer:

- The time frame is 15M I forgot to add it;

- Yes there are also some other extra filters, however since it's designed for manual trading I'm assuming some of them are virtually impossible to replicate, for example the shape of the "trigger bar" ("pin" or "ice cream" bar, that's his own terminology). I'll attach the detailed manual rules in the picture from my notes.

- Another condition is that the MAs sequence also needs to match the 1H time frame, also not possible to replicate I think..

- Anyway the strategy should grow the equity by 10-15% a month according to the statistics, so for sure it does not have an exceptional winning rate of 80-90%, however I would still like to test it, what do you guys think?

Re: Automating a strategy from a successful manual trader

Test it for sure.
After you have optimized it, then tale the lock off the first moving average pair to see what that gives you (leave the chain on)
Then add an indicator slot to see if an additional indicator will improve the results
Keep playing with it until you have something worthwhile

good luck!

Re: Automating a strategy from a successful manual trader

add indicators, or let the program choose indicators

You will learn fast by trying things

I think Petko is encouraging you to experiment

Re: Automating a strategy from a successful manual trader

Thank you Blaiser I will! If you don't mind I'll let you know how things are going.

Please anyone feel free to comment or add any thoughts.

Have a great day!

Re: Automating a strategy from a successful manual trader

Please do let us know

We will all profit from your experience

I could have given a couple more ideas but I feel that for you to get started is preferable

By the way... the  one  hour stuff is  available by setting the time frame within the indicator

Good luck!

Hi Marco, Because the TF is M15, I think if you "add entry/exit time filter" the result will be better

BTW which pairs do you use for this strategy?

do or do not there is no try

Re: Automating a strategy from a successful manual trader

Thank you for the tip Yonkuro!

The strategy is theoretically designed for all the main pairs. However I would probably stick to EUR/USD at least at the beginning..what do you think?

Re: Automating a strategy from a successful manual trader

well, when you get it working for one pair, then try another.
