Winning with few losing positions in crypto currency automated trading world

I have demonstrated in this test in a video that 2 out of 4 positions were profitable. One broker even with another of tiny loss of 0.06% which is very minimal. Remember that the commission of Binance is 0.1%.

That is pretty good I would think but I am trying to get a 66% win lost ratio. This test has been successful but this time period was of the asset of class of crypto currency is up. Also, this test ran for over 14 hours.

I will also be working on ways to enhance the profitability potential this system of Python scripts.

#1 goal in forex trading is not to lose money but profit is 2nd

Let maximise our crypto currency asset class trading positions with portfolio optimization

This 15 (approx) minute video showcases my portfolio optimizer which I have shown before. Do realize this can be applied to any asset class. You can always search on my Youtube channel for ‘portfolio’ as hinted in this video. The idea here is to showcase you could triple your expected return by using the appropriate strategy type with proper optimally weighted positions. This is all shown in the video. I would say this is one of the biggest reasons to automate your strategy and trading. No human can do this if you were to allocate a higher number of positions across multiple asset classes for the day. You could even run this script every few hours if I wanted to allocate positions every X hours. I would have to feel pretty lucky to do that.

Look back matters among other parameters to consider

Do understand your analysis look back also matters depending on your overall asset class performance. As of now, crypto currency has taken a major beating so it might be wise lower the loopback to let’s say 7 days vs 30 as shown in the earlier part of the video.

Note that this can be used on any asset class based on the historical performance of standard open, high, low, and close market data. I use Binance exchange which only allows long only but could also include portfolio strategy methodology of Markovian Long/Short, Markovian market neutral, and Markovian Market Neutral.

Let me know what you think of this.

Detailed overview of Dukascopy API order and positions with stop loss and take profit

Complete overview of Dukascopy API order and positions with stop loss and take profit

I wondered what exit strategies people use in their trading. I posted this on various Facebook entities I administer. I posted this:

Who uses either stop loss and/or take profit only on their exits only? What other techniques have you used in an automated trading setting?

I got these comments:

I use trailing stops on nearly all trades… I break up my sells and trail stops a little different for each block… I don’t automate trading – I wish I could learn it, but its too much for me to learn by myself…

always have a limit order for exit, it’s the only way you can predict your losses therefore have a strategy, if you don’t cap your losses how can you have a profitable strategy?

 

I am interested to know what you use. I had many dialogues over this but things may have changed since then.

 

I also posted this video lately regarding the API. If you missed the memo, I have found Visual JForex can generate really ugly Java code as part of your strategy. In fact, I would consider it even useless or beginners if they want to advance their own programming skills.

 

Right now, I am focused on the stop losses right now for exit strategies. As a result, I made a video on this as usual. Also, note that I do plan to use regression for entry as hinted in another previously sent video as well. In short, just take a look at my most recent videos found in my Dukascopy playlist on my Youtube.com/quantlabs channel.

I got deep on these different scenarios which means I will use various techniques for my exit strategy needs https://quantlabs.net/blog/2017/09/complte-overview-of-dukascopy-api-order-and-positions-with-stop-loss-and-take-profit/
Remember I got my affordable video course series on these topics if you want to learn what I am applying here with Dukascopy.
