Quant analytics: Automating Elliot Wave Principle in Forex

Quant analytics: Automating Elliot Wave Principle in Forex

I have been stress testing Elliot wave principle on Major FX markets for the last 2 years and I can conclude that it really works most of the time. Currently, I am working on money/risk management system around it to make it robust. But I am finding it difficult to automate it. Any suggestions?

Also, I would also like to discuss about using the same principle on equities. The statistical significance of my back tested data were not very great so I am not proceeding further with my analysis. But one observation was clear that high volume stocks have higher statistical significance than low volume stocks as the prices can be manipulated. Nevertheless, I would appreciate if you have any ideas to refine this strategy.

Yes – Please look at MTpredictor.com (looks at tradable setups using elliott waves- for e.g. ABC pull back before Wave 3 advance) – I have been using the EOD version of the program for futures (including Fx futures) in 20-30 markets for years and the signals work very well – It comes with clear entry/exit/stop loss signals as well as money management techniques with specified R (amount risked per trade)

Automating an options trading strategy – ideally on IG’s spreadbetting platform

Automating an options trading strategy – ideally on IG’s spreadbetting platform

Hi all, I would like to automate an options trading strategy that I’m currently using (manually) at IG (spreadbetting). Does anyone know if IG Spreadbetting platform can be automated? I don’t think it can be. Alternatively, can anyone recommend a platform that can be used to autmoatically buy defined options positions, triggered by free cash on the account?

Yes, it can be automated, there are two ways. First, the most simple and reliable way — you can use their charting package (that one by ProRealTime) and switch on autotrading. You have to pay them some small amount monthly, but this amount is returned to you when you meet their volume requirements. See their site for details or contact them.

The other way round is to analyse traffic to and from their web platform and send appropriate messages automatically. I had tried that some years ago, it is possible, but very confusing and overly sophisticated.

 

can you tell what is the commission you pay for options trading at IG?

are you able to tell us more how you analysed the traffic and send messages to the platform? I am looking to generate price alerts automatically and post limit orders automatically – something that can’t be done in ProRealtime. Other limitations with ProRealtime is that prices are delayed (about one second) and it does not track all the ticks (we often see jumps in the prices).
@Itamar, there’s no commission per say but you pay a spread that is larger than the bid/offer of the underlying option. The spread also widens when liquidity is low in the underlying market.
