Introduction
This article is about the ‘tool’ I developed for JForex which will allow to link some or all of your charts to a main one, and switch the selected instrument in all of them in just one click.
How to setup
Save the .jfx file on your preferred C://...//Strategies folder and play in Local Run. Before playing the code, click on the chart where you desire having all commands. In this article’s example the GBP USD 30 Minutes will be our main chart:
Once hit the PLAY button, there will be the possibility to set few parameters through the ‘Define Parameters Window’. Consider the following picture:
Once hit the Run button, the code will load a very small widget on the main chart and a red “dot” on every open chart. See the picture:
1 - How to link 1 or more charts
The red dot is mouse-event sensitive: a double click will link the chart and another double click to un-link it back. If the chart is linked, the dot will be automatically drawn in green color. Consider the following picture:
2 - How to switch Instrument
The widget will load the previously selected instruments in the left-to-right order, so the first button after the switch button (explained in next paragraph), will b…

Dear developer, could you tell me how can I add more currency pairs to this? shall I edit the .jfx file to do this? how and where can I edit .jfx files? by which app?

Do you mean adding more buttons? You cannot modify the jfx file.... You should modify the java file but is not published

Je voudrais partager avec vous quelques aspects de l'analyse statistique sur l'historique des cours ou backtest. Précisons avant tout que cet exposé se limite aux cas suivants :
  • Backtest manuel
  • Daytrading
  • Trading manuel

Nous allons donc nous attacher à l'analyse statistique menée manuellement dans le cadre d'une activité de daytrading basée sur le modèle statistique étudié, activité qui ne peut être automatisée et qui nécessite alors votre présence devant l'écran tout au long de votre session. Cette restriction n'est pas impérative mais s'applique au mieux à l'analyse du présent article, libre au lecteur de l'adapter à ses besoins.
Prenons un exemple pour clarifier ces conditions : vous désirez étudier une représentation en chandeliers japonais 5 min dans une structure graphique particulière. Cet exemple ne pourra être formulé, un backtest automatique est donc exclu. Si ce backtest est validé, l'ouverture et la fermeture de toute position se feront manuellement.
L'ambition de cet article n'est pas de vous livrer clés en main une méthode d'analyse statistique mais plutôt le b.a.-ba de ce qu'il ne faut pas faire.
J'ai toujours été fasciné par l'écart, parfois le gouffre, qui peut exist…

In a definition of Price Action trading (PA) strategy, it is an act of responding to ways and manner that price behaves or behaving during a period in time. With PA, you are going to trade what you see and not relying on any complex indicator that you did not even know how it’s been calculated. You act based on some laid down rules as regards price behavior.
Although, price action is best recommended for anyone who’s just beginning in financial market. I could recall my first encounter with FX market, I was so overwhelmed with a whole lot of different trading strategies. They all appear great in theory, but ugly in practice. Not until I’ve learn to settle down for price action strategy and the reward was huge.
No strategy is fail safe, price action inclusive. No strategy or system will single-handedly give you consistent result or profit. Every time we speak of consistency in Forex trading, little do we know that it cut across the way we interpret the market, the way we stick to a strategy over a period of time, the way we keep to a leverage size and the time we open and close the trading terminal every day.
Well, I wouldn’t want to bug you with too much talk. If you’ve been in the…

Before continuing I would reccomend to read the previous steps where I explained the bases and some core concepts. You can find them following these links: part 1 here and part 2 here.
The fourth element

The concept is always the same: everything has a clear (eventually complex) function but has to be as much simple as possible. At this stage I'm going to implement the order engine, so meaning the whole code structure that allows to open positions in the given instrument.
As I already explained, any MA-based strategy is definetly not stable: always ends with an overall losing result, no matter what timeframe or instrument, but in the same time there are really good opportunities happening in particular conditions.
To simplify and improve my trade decisions, I need the maximum amount of informations and commands in the same chart so I found useful to sligthly modify a simple tool found in the Strategy API: the widget.
Chart widget
What triggered in my mind this idea is simple: since the full automation doesn't work (for this MA-based strategy), I will execute the trades manually, but I wa

Actually, I had to remove the downloadable .java because I noticed there is something wrong with order execution. It works on strategy test, but does not work in real mode! Quite strange indeed.... will check out, and eventually post it on comments after I fix the issue :/

Ok fixed. I thought it wasn't necessary to pass on te IOrder. I was following my idea based on previous strategy which was built in ITick.

I take the opportunity to modify some parts and implement the code to make it work better. I will probably finish before contest expiry date, so will publish everything on last article (just a quick review). Eventually if someone wants the code, I will put it available again. Thank you

This is in continuation of previous article published on 4th February, where I exposed how the Linear Regression Slope indicator can be used to collect many informations in one single data outcome (indicator positive or negative) when used in m15 timeframe, with 96 time periods.
The second element

Before going to explain this step, I have to explain deeper the first one, showing a clear example of what happens in a daily chart and how I read it in the 15min timeframe.
In the following picture we see the EUR/AUD instrument in daily timeframe. Starting from the beginning of 2014, price was showing some attempts to keep rising and resume the previous uptrend, but as we see there was a strong reversal down with a full 2 days downward. This was due because of strong fundamental change, came near important resistance area.
Looking at this scenario in the 15m timeframe I have much more to say, see the chart:
When the new year was open, price immediatly came back down near 2013 close, showing a quick bounce reconquering the eMA65 and giving a further 50pips continuation to the upside (indeed strategy's purpose is to get maximum 40-45pips each trade). But the overall situation is

Introduction

I have been observing for a while, one of my short term strategies to identify possible good entries or eventually 'emergency exits'. In the past I already explained it quite deeper with a series where I also shared a quick code in order to obtain the strategy to work in full automation: you can find all explanation about strategy concepts, codes and backtests following this link.
However, this kind of strategy creates a large amount of losing trades when price is stuck in major resistances and supports, indeed all MA-based strategies has the same limitation.
With this article series, I'm going to show all steps I made in recent months (long time spent watching strategy behavior), taking the opportunity to share some quick ideas which can be interesting for other members.
The first element
I have some firm beliefs about trading and one of them is the simplest ever: when there is a clean direction, everything works fine. See this chart:
If market was everyday like this, trading would make us billionaires in few months! Situations like this however, happens few times during one month and so I started wondering "what makes that situation different from another?".…

Hi, you article is good, the idea is good, but unfortunatly you are publishing only fragment of code without global variable, take some time to test the code, so just stop the reader to go the next article
