Introducing my flag and pennant technical pattern for automated crypto currency trading

There are a number of corrections I believe in this script but I am unsure of the importance of these pattern (s) since they are quite rare anyhow. So why continue? Why even bother trying to develop for wedges as well?

 

In summary; Should I abandon both flag/pennants and wedges patterns. They are tough to program and plot among other reasons listed.

Here are the links from the video:

https://www.babypips.com/learn/forex/pennants

https://www.babypips.com/forexpedia/flags

Note:

In the last 3 minutes of this video is a new segment which shows the improvement of how I define a bull or bear flag. Also, you need to measure the trend before the pattern so I used 10 candle/bars before the pattern forms as a test. Just remember I allocated 20 candles/bars to allow the completion of  the flag or pennant  pattern. It should  at least show there is consolidation in the price of at least 20 bars. These programming conditions hopefully are correct to reflect the right pattern with expected price direction.

There seems to be a strange anomaly in the code where patterns form sometime in early April. I am unsure if it this is weird bug on the Binance data servers or in my programming script.

As the way it goes, I am not even sure if these patterns really matter since they are quite rare to capture.

Automated head and shoulders webinar demo video replay

I have put last Wednesday video playback of the automated head and shoulders into my membership area which is here:

http://quantlabs.net/academy/automated-head-and-shoulders-webinar-demo-video-replay/

Do realize that this video is replay is for my members only. You can see your various options below if you are interested in signing up.

This video reveals that:

1. Yes there are quite a few crypto currency trading ‘opportunities’ while looking at recent Binance hourly data. It was so impressive I see no reason right now but to only focus on this asset class because of the extremely wide intraday moves which you could bank on!

2. Even though the crypto currency market is in steady decline daily, I found about 10 trading opportunities I could profit off of. When I looked, only 3 currencies were profitable out of 100 on Wednesday evening.

3. Description included:

Hi,

A friend refer me to your site.
I’m on the way researching some way could we adapt in binary options trading with consistant result. Just ask if something of your works could help me with that?

I’m reading from you now.

Thanks  Anh Vu

I want to mention – that i for sure like your “style” of email communication. I’m not rich with eloquent english, and in simple words – not formal (straight, strict), cosy (comfy), unusual in a good way for me. As the result – i am not just reading all content of your emails, i also answer or even go to the survey page ))

And i hope that your are real, not some advanced AI/ML tech, which were made at Quantlabs )))

I cant see the results, at least the new one – latest is in youtube format , dated 12 apr )

I have a pattern kind of like head and shoulders but not commonly known which I use to trade by hand. I have tried to automate it using Gekko and tradingview, and Gekko kept bugging out, and it works on tradingview but I use a chrome plugin called autoview to automate it and that bugs out as bad as gekko. It just randomly doesn’t trade sometimes or just messes up a lot. Could you possibly do a video on how to automate our own pattern using ccxt?

Bryan , let me tell a few words about my aims at the moment.

Specializing in IT security with 5+ years in web development experience, having a strong computer background i’ve been recently asked by my boss to dig into trading strategies implementations and backtesting ( the man who worked on that – left our company).

I can refuse him with no consequences on salary , etc… and we all do what we want to do, so i have and interest for trading and markets, got little basic self education in this area, improved finance and economy english words knowledge. I was fine with switching to trading strategy analysis… cause its also includes programming.

We have a little fund, and we rely on trend following in common. So the legacy i got from the man who worked and was kinda experienced in the field are Wealth-Lab and few strategies.

CSI UA is for futures historical data, and as i know yahoo is for stocks. Daily trading – meaning that we rely on the data for the day, not intraday…

Our trader guy is follow this strategies and manually make all trades. Portfolio – is futures and CFD’s .

So i started to go deeper only few weeks ago, looked at wealth lab scripts which is in C# which i consider good language, and my fav is Python )

And these scripts appears to be a mess… it’s really f-ud up for me as a programmer)

So me research into this area showed that first of all – the Wealth Lab “for loop” approach while testing strategy is have far more cons than pros. Event-driven model is far more real, and convenient.

Starting from this post

http://www.followingthetrend.com/2014/05/why-i-prefer-rightedge-for-strategy-modeling/

made by Andreas Clenow, later he became my “mentor” in this area, i like his approach, found his articles or posts in a lots of places, he is likes or loves coding, RightEdge uses C#, but he also improves himself at Python and lots of programming stuff.

I also discovered https://www.quantconnect.com/ , quantopian – more as a knowledge base platforms, than actual trading or backtesting.

Took a look at software analogues of WealthLab  (which for me was a bit of fail) , i stopped at RightEdge which is relatively cheap, and has a real full blown C# support (i think they us GUI parts from Visual Studio), the other choice i may ask for could be OpenQuant 2014, but it’s 10 times more expensive ) about 4K $ per year… I think for starting and for moving from shitty WealthLab – RightEdge is right )

Then the common strategy principles are pretty simple – few price channel indicators, and ATR. So as i understood thats called volatility breakout, or pricechannel breakout strategies.

It was added with some additional logic by the guy before, and cause of his shitty code i hardly grasp it yet…

That`s called systematic trading ? for sure not algotrading….

Getting deeper into topic i met few researches, one was huge  –  that statistically tech analysis tools (trend following ) even with proper backtesting, etc in our times… have no evidence as profitable (and yes i know thats a strategy for at least 3 years to wait ).

Compared to this recent strategies which are based on tech analysis plus AI/ML (based on some fundamental data and tech data as i recall) were statistically significant.

summary of all long text:

now i have just basic understanding of implementing trading strategy and backtesting it, appeared there are much much more specifics are need to be done (like proper risk management), and i moving that way slowly, but deeply )

In the nearest future i think we should implement automatic algotrading (at least on some part of equity and instruments), and then for sure i see positive side to use AI/ML and fundamental data in complex approach…

Now i have a lot of beginners questions… as for python, statistics, probability theory, patterns – i would like to join your lecture/lesson – depends on a local time. I will check!

Well, much obliged for reading this far )))

anyway will be in touch, its morning already here )))

Demo of automated head and shoulders with XRB BTC hourly crypto currency data from Binance

Demo of automated head and shoulders with XRB BTC hourly crypto currency data from Binance

This is a powerful indicator or trading patterns which is generated automatically. As explained in the data, I can only get this working with hourly data since it needs about 1000 data points. I can confirm it seems to download hourly data from both Bitmex and Binance using ccxt Python package. Always remember this is the potential market entry point once the closing price rises above the green dot. This pattern also needs to be verified against other patterns and indicators that I have among my arsenal.

Note that this is a very crude chart for mechanical demo purposes with no proper timing displayed on the horizontal axis. It seems to work ok.

I have no interest right now in inverted head and shoulders sinceI only have an interest in longing for now.

More info head and shoulders info

https://www.babypips.com/learn/forex/head-and-shoulders

Correction from the video means that the green dot should represent the expected price move:

You can see that once the price goes below the neckline it makes a move that is at least the size of the distance between the head and the neckline.

Flat forex markets adjustment for this automated trading strategy

Required changes to trading strategy for flat forex markets

Quite a few changes I need for this current passive strategy used for forex:

  1. Use slope of curves of daily charts (end of day)
  2. Period has changed from 500 days to 240 which is the number of trading days per day
  3. Portfolio strategy results needs a new calculation on correct set of results
  4. Expanded number of currencies from 12 to 35

What I find is that for the data set of yesterday for 1 year shows:

  1. There is not many currency pairs that show long term upward trend
  2. Markets seem very volatile to calculate a steady trend. I think this is why many banks have reduced staff on currency trading desks globally

What are the options for me?

  1. Expand into other markets like commodity or regional stock market indices. Note that using Dukascopy only can be used with CFD which is banned in USA. Just remember Dukascopy do not accept US residents. I will need to verify the bahvior of these broker CFD with their underlying instrument.
  2. Will higher risk amount of leverage help in these flat forex markets?
  3. Crypto currencies seems high risk with no predictable patterns for forward looking guidance.
  4. Will my patterns of wedges, flag, pennants help? This will be under development by a third pattern starting this week.

I will need to watch more NicTrades videos on Facebook to really understand how this overall strategy plays out.

Big whale profit algo automated forex trading lesson

Who knew? You make a 43 minute video and you teach yourself certain lessons. It seems the velocity of negative real time P&L (from the broker) can be a potential guarantee to see if you have a unprofitable trade going against you. Check this video out to see a potentially big whale position version others that go negative. It seems shorts have a higher profitability that goes against me. Also, ensure that your broker gives REAL TIME P&L after you put your position on (entry) to track this. This video also shows on how debugging and logging of the evolution of these positions can help in tracking. I don’t think many brokers offer real time P&L nor proper trading APIs. Can this also be said for all the crypto currency exchanges out there?

One thing after a conversation with someone who has experience with Dukascopy JForex, it is how the API has lots of detailed metrics and technical indicators. Not only that, it is agreed that the Object Oriented Programming nature of the API works to your advantage as compared to Interactive Brokers or LMAX.
