### Re: GRAB strategy

Many thanks.

Do you think it's possible to upgrade GRAB strategy by my own entries and stops ?
It's a mix between GRAb and MA PRICE touch

Thanks a lot.

Sure.
Can you write a complete pseudo code.

### Re: GRAB strategy

Here it is

The signal is an opportunity to trade but i think price is to high to open directly a trade. Market made often a pullback to the level of the EMA HIGH. That’s why, i like to buy at this level and not at the closing price like GRAB strategy does.

1. If source.close[period] > Indicator.high[period] AND source.close[period-1]> Indicator.low[period-1] then
 we have a BUY signal but not a trade yet

o create market order when price touched indicator.high[period-1] + delta in pips

 price = indicator.high[period-1] + delta in pips
 With Stop = indicator.low [period-1] + delta in pips
 With Limit = round up to the last digit + « x »pips (ie : price 150.12….round up to 150.20 + « x »pips) (I am not sure the rounding up is possible ??)

 Signal is expired and cancelled after « x » candle(s). (if price is still above EMA34 HIGH, we have « x » candles to touch indicator.high[period-1] + delta in pips)

 To have another signal, price should be closed below EMA HIGH AND above EMA LOW…and then wait until price is closing above EMA 34 HIGH.

2. If source.close[period] < Indicator.low[period] AND source.close[period-1]< Indicator.high[period-1] then
 we have a SELL signal but not a trade yet.

o create market order when price touched indicator.low[period-1] + delta in pips

 price = indicator.low[period-1] + delta in pips
 With Stop = indicator.high [period-1] + delta in pips
 With Limit = round up to the last digit + « x »pips (ie : price 150.32….round up to 150.30 + « x »pips)

 Signal is expired and cancelled after « x » candle(s). (if price is still below EMA34 LOW, we have « x » candles to touch indicator.low[period-1] + delta in pips)

 To have another signal, price should be closed above EMA LOW AND below EMA HIGH…and then wait until price is closing below EMA 34 LOW.

3. Can trade multiple trades in the same time

4. If position is opened :
If buying position :
 Stop : update by following indicator.low + delta in pips
If selling position :
 Stop : update by following indicator.high + delta in pips

### Re: GRAB strategy

Could someone explain this strategy, please? I'm new to the Forum and ran across this and it has peaked my interest. I have a manual strategy that i first thought was very similar, but now I'm not so sure. If I understand what I've read correctly, this buys at the MA high and sells at the MA low, is that correct?
If so, wouldn't it be more profitable if it was just the opposite? Sells at the MA high and buys at the MA low?

On my manual strategy, I have a series of MA's running on the 4hr. If the price is running below these MA's, it is a sell environment and if it's running above, it is a buy. Therefore you don't buy if the price is below and vice versa. I refer to my MA's as a cable.
When the price runs through the cable, it generally continues it's overall trend and therefore I enter to continue the trend.
When it runs through is an entrance and I limit my entrance to 30 pip with a stop at 15.
Is there anyway I could adapt the GRAB strategy to my manual?

I guess it dépends of the timeframe traders are using.But it could be a great possibility
