Re: Breakout Strategy

Dear Apprentice,

I have a request for an indicator: AATR (x-y) (Average Average True Range (periods-days))
As I have been reviewing the breakout strategy, I noticed that another key element is to position the period zone in an optimal location where the price is flat. I think this may be represented best by the ATR indicator being at its lowest. Since there is some day to day variation. I wanted to have an indicator where the ATR is represented as a histogram, and each bar is Y days average of the ATR(x) in that specific time period in the chart. So, if I choose AATR(14,30), this would be calculated based on the ATR(14), where each histogram bar represents the 30 days average of each time period. This would help me optimize the position of the Breakout indicator to yield the best exposure to market movement.

Please let me know if there is another indicator out there that would do the same job.
Thanks again for your help.

Hello everyone,

I have a request to make, I would like to see if anyone has this breakout strategy written for strategy trader or metatrader. I believe that would be and fxd or mql4 file. And if not how I could go about acquiring it written in one of those languages. I have tested this strategy in marketscope and its amazing. Thank you for your help.

Hi,

I have installed the Breakout Strategy with the GMMACD filter however I would appreciate it if a couple of things be explained to me.

1. If a filter is applied to a strategy, should there be an option to select it or not and also test both options during optimization?

2. How exactly does the GMMACD work, so that from a visual point of looking at it on the chart, one can see where a trade would have triggered if the conditions were met.

3. Could an indicator version of the strategy be created with arrows showing buy , sell and neutral. This would help in either placing trades manually or at least historically seeing where trades would have been triggered.

Thanks and keep up all the good work. :)

1.
You're right, this kind of functionality would be useful.
Unfortunately it was not added.

Sometimes, users must provide accurate specifications.
Developers can add thousands of functions, and lose a lot of time.
It is not their job.
2.
More about GMMACD you can find here.

3.
Yes, Someone will write this one.
