Low spread saves the day for algo forex trading positions

I talk about lessons learned in the live webinar last. It seems to help immensely with a 77% win ratio of 9 positions over the last 12 hours.

Major global Market market opening hours generate these positions

Some pairs are taken due to credit worthiness of certain currencies

You need volume and momentum to trigger the positions

Tight spread cost window of opportunity does exist based on high momentum opportunity

Woot Woot.

Just added 2% to the crypro positions return in this 30 minute Apple podcast

You blab for a half an hour where this 2% is added to your total daily return within 30 minutes. Golly gee, I wonder how I will do tomorrow?

I also found an article to see what others luminaries would say about Bitcoin’s future. Some were outlandish while others may not be that far off. I think Bitcoin will die but taken over by something bigger.

I speak about this course which will go up in the price after Dec 27.

Positions Spreadsheet of up 5% in market: Continue trading same day?

 

I posted this on my private Telegram last night with spreadsheet you can download

Here is an example of last nite. it is up 5.45% for all the positions. Is it worth to stop on the first one? Or continue to risk losing first return of the position of 4.27%? in this case, I was lucky but I can easily lose the profit or go negative entirely. this is my point of what can happen. I am able to control the losing positions when my weight average of the big 5 cryptos coins are >%1. This was the case last night so I include the mock positions. the crypto market is still >1% right now So i reset to see what happens from this point on. what would you do ?

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.
