1. Overview
After several publications on how to build strategies in Visual jforex and tracking of various strategies performances I decided to write one more article on several strategies usage at the same time. So in this publication I will cover 3 different strategies and its pros and cons on its usage simultaneously.
2. Strategies logic
There are 3 strategies working in different pairs: EUR/USD, USD/JPY and EUR/JPY.
All 3 strategies has very simple positions opening logic it uses 5 min. RSI to determine position opening. RSI thresholds are configurable and can be change on strategy start:
Thus simply if RSI is higher than threshold rsi_h strategy opens short position and if RSI is lower than threshold rsi_l strategy opens long position. Additionally there is check if spread is within acceptable range in order not to open positions then spread widens and also one more check is implemented which prevents increasing exposure in the same currency if certain position is already open. For example if there is already EUR/JPY long opened opening of EUR/USD long will be prevented by strategy only opening of EUR/USD short will be possible. This is realized in visual jforex in following w…

Благодаря программе Visual JForex создание торговой стратегии сейчас доступно практически любому начинающему трейдеру, а огромный набор индикаторов, представленных в торговой платформе JForex, позволяет достичь впечатляющих результатов в автоматической торговле.
Изучая в прошлом году индикатор Time Segmented Volume я пришел к выводу, что его можно применить как базовый для автоматической торговли. После ряда исторических тестов, методом проб и ошибок, была создана торговая стратегия NBI (ver. 4.7), победившая в январском 2018 года конкурсе стратегий. Ключевая ее идея – вход в рынок по локальному тренду после незначительных коррекционных движений. Источником сигналов служит пара индикаторов TVS с временными периодами 12 (TVS12) и 3 (TVS3). Основное условие открытия ордеров buy – положительное значение TVS12 при отрицательном значении TVS3, а ордеров sell – отрицательное значение TVS12 при положительном значении TVS3.

Предисловие
Статья написана в помощь всем, кто пытается освоить визуальное программирование на VisualJForex. На примере стратегии основанной на индикаторе MACD, по шагам Вы научитесь азам как в Форексе, так и в визуальной среде программирования VisualJForex.
Идея
Первое что необходимо, перед тем как "программировать" нужно разработать стратегию. Предлагаю рассмотреть стратегию, которая много денег не заработает, но 50-100% годовых будет. То есть такую стратегию интересно иметь если у Вас портфель из стратегий (У Вас большой депозит и Вы используете много торговых советников, которые торгуют за Вас, выгодно иметь как рисковые торговые советники, так и стабильные - мало входов, мало сделок, но все плюс минус в "яблочко").
Торговля ведется на инструменте EUR/USD на 4-х часовом таймфрейме. Нам нужно добавить 1 индикатор MACD параметрами 12,26,22(смотрите рисунок 1).
Суть стратегии такова - сигнал получаем при выходе сигнальной желтой полосатой линии из розовой гистограммы. Если гистограмма выше нуля, открываем ордер на продажу. Если ниже нуля на покупку.Как я и писал выше,сигналов не много, всего 4 сигнала за 2 месяца. Но за 2 зайцами когда гонишься - результат всем известный, Депо ра…

Introduction

Momentum based trading strategy is an investment strategy that aims to capitalize on the continuance of existing trends in the market. In order to take advantage of the perceived opportunity, a trader takes a long position in a currency pair that has shown an upward trending price, or short-sells a security that has been in a downtrend. The idea being once a trend is established, it is more likely to continue in that direction than to move against the trend.
This article looks at how we can create a momentum based trading strategy in Visual JForex using the Commodity Channel Index (CCI) and Stochastic indicators.
What is Visual JForex?

Visual JForex is a comprehensive solution to build, test and run strategies; it is based on a user-friendly interface using drag and drop feature. It has a unique way to develop fully automated strategies using blocks linked to each other to build a complete and ready-to-execute forex strategies.

1. Overview
After creating of various strategies which in their logic used more or less Martingale principle I decided to test one more possibility. As I tried several times different approaches in strategy contest and sooner or later such strategies ran into negative territory or logic was not aggressive enough to build enough balance for taking of prize position. Thus after analysis of strategies performance I decided to develop my approach and create strategy based on big numbers approach.
2. Strategy logic
First of all this strategy will not be suitable for strategy contest as strategy logic is based on having 2 simultaneously opened positions. But it will suit well for Dukat contest thus after creation of mentioned strategy I will load it to Dukat contest and there will be possibility to monitor strategy performance.
So strategy will be base on running to strategies simultaneously one in EUR/USD pair and another in USD/JPY pair. If position in EUR/USD pair will be LONG, position in USD/JPY pair will be LONG also. And vice versa is position in EUR/USD pair will be SHORT, position in USD/JPY pair will be SHORT too. Thus effectively we will have EUR/JPY exposure either LONG or SH…

Many traders struggle to make it in Forex and more than 50% eventually give up. But Forex requires a lot of patience and perseverance. Most people are usually profitable in their first days of trading Forex because they are able to adhere to the rules and their knowledge is still fresh. But in Forex to make it, its best if you adhere to the rules. Sometimes the rules may not be enough because of a wrong strategy. In this article i will discuss a way in which one may improve their existing strategy to make it profitable.

Technical analysis
1. Support and Resistance

This is one of the most important tools that every trader needs to know how to use. Support and resistance lines help provide the best entries and exits for a trader. They also help remove any bias from the market and also facilitate both counter trading and trading along with the trend. Of all tools i think support and resistance can really make a difference in your trading if combined with your existing strategy.

2.Pivot points

Support and resistance lines are subjective. The skill of drawing them accurately may take time to develop and also drawing them largely depends on one's Forex knowledge. If you are one of the …

We are in the Forex market to make money but all of us know it's easier said than done. The most important factor which ultimately makes or breaks the trading career is the trading framework using which we carry out the trades. Success in trading comes if the technique we are using to undertake any trade is sound. If we have faith in the framework we are using the most of the decisions will be rational and we will be less prone to take decision based on the emotional impulses.
Now that I have tested some success in Forex market I tried to look back on the things I have done right and things I have done wrong. In process I realized if we use multiple things to validate our single trade then probability of trade going right can rise to as much as 75% to 80%. Here I will be providing information on how we can use the various forums of Dukascopy Forex community to our advantage. The tools such as Visual J forex platform, trade feed of trader contest and Signal provider contest, views of fellow traders on important fundamental events listed for the day; can together help us in deciding which trade to choose and when to keep out of market.
Let us now look at how we can use each platform …

What is it all About?

I have been trying to develop strategies in visual jforex – a visual platform to develop strategies. You can develop a strategy in less than 30 minutes but only after you play with the platform functionalities and know how to utilize the strategies. I will provide the basic functionalities (“Hello World” type) to get anyone started and then to see the output (back test) of the strategy. And off course some tips, tricks best practices which I found useful while working with strategies.
The main theme I will cover in this article is- How to back test your strategies so as to save time and not wait for real market if your strategy will work or not. Although there are functional document provided by Dukascopy but I missed to notice back test features anywhere in the documents. I will provide one simple strategy - if RSI above 70, sell or if RSI below 30 buy and then test this strategy on beautiful back testing (called Historical Tester) feature at jforex 3.0 trading platform.

The above very simple strategy (Just for illustration purpose) to get you started. It has simple logic:

In my previous article i have shown you a strategy based on MACD & stochastic oscillator. This strategy is one of the best strategy present in the library. Lets automate it and see
is this is a profitable strategy or not?
So lets start building the strategy first.

STEP-1 Beginning

1. Periods + Instrument Selections
2. Position Limiting Block
Take a look at the Figure-
STEP-2 Indicators

1. Macd

As from figure to Open a trade we have to look at the slope of macd.
is it upward or downward? To know we have to think about simple maths. we need three last histograms to be
Uptrend- "up down up"
Downtrend- "down up down"

See the Figures
hence it is confirmed that we have require the past three histogram data which is given by
MACD(Shift1), MACD(Shift2), MACD(Shift3)

2. Stochastic

A simple Stochastic of default period with shift-1
This is how it looks like-
STEP-3 Opening Orders
1. In the figure, The left hand portion is for opening Sell order and Right hand portion is for open Buy orders.
2. We have used 3 macd hence to Open a position we have to use same down up down strategy for opening Short position and vice versa for a long position.
3. Stochastic is default as crossover, if it …

Thanks for your effort, it's beneficial for readers to know, how the "article" can be melted in some automated strategy. However I'd be cautious to claim that it's profitable strategy based on back testing result of one month.

The outcome of FOMC meeting of Federal Reserve of United States of America is a much anticipated event worldwide. The Forex market players keep a close watch on the economic data and political situation globally in lead up to the meeting to be able to accurately forecast the likely outcome of two day bi-monthly meeting of Federal Open Market Committee. The CME group's FedWatch tool was pricing in a probability of nearly 95 % of a 0.25% rate increase in FOMC target range of Federal Fund rates from 0.25%-0.50% to 0.50%-0.75%. The significance of this rate hike can be gauged from the fact that it is only second time in a decade that Federal Reserve has raised the rates.
The markets reactions to such high important events is what gives us opportunity to make big profits because of the increased volatility associated with it. If you have a trade set up which is supported by fundamental analysis as well as technical analysis I see no reason why you won't be on the winning side. So I decided to prepare a trade set up exclusively for the FOMC meeting. I did a whole lot study to figure out the best possible trades for this event. Now that I have reaped the benefits I decided to share it wi…

INTRODUCTION: Hi, friends, in a thanksgiving effort to all, I am going to give a strategy in Visual Jforex, which can help you all in turnover generation. Trading strategy which I discussed in my previous article, 2 EMA and 1 MA crossover method. As we all know when we get prize money, to withdraw that we need to generate required turnover. Logic behind this turnover generation rule is, Dukascopy wants us to make, one of the best forex trader. They want us to become a competitive trader. Because in this condition of turnover generation one will think and try to find out a trading method which will be profitable.
So lets start, I already given description of EMA and MA Indicators, in my last article and also explained VISUAL JFOREX BLOCKS which are needed here.
Lets check out on chart first, how it works. Below is the chart of EUR/USD on one minute time frame. Why I have selected EUR/USD. Because it has the lowest spread in all currency pairs, because of which it will give more profit. To make it more trend friendly this time I have used 200 period moving average. Here I have used 12 period EMA 26 period EMA and 200 period MA. On chart you can see, least width line 12 EMA, little b…

EXPONENTIAL MOVING AVERAGE( EMA )
INTRODUCTION: Exponential Moving Average is also similar to Simple Moving Average but its more important than simple moving average as it gives more weight to recent data. Another benefit is, Exponential moving average quickly adjust to recent trend change so it gives early trend confirmation.
USE OF EMA:
12 and 26 EMA are used to make MOVING AVERAGE CONVERGENCE DIVERGENCE (MACD), And PERCENTAGE PRICE OSCILLATOR (PPI). In general 50 EMA AND 200 EMA gives us idea to gauge long term trend. They are very useful but depends on right combination. Wrong combination will give late information and sometimes can even mislead you. EMA are suggested to be used with any other two technical indicators to increase probability of right trade. EMA are more reliable on longer time frame in other instruments but for very short term trade in currency it can be helpful even on 5 minutes time duration. As currencies by nature changes trend several times in a day because they are data dependent and can reverse the trend even on statements of important speakers.
Many times in sideways trend crossovers can mislead so I have made one modification. Below I will explain wi…

Buenos días a todos!
Antes de todo pido disculpa para escribir este post en Español! Podría intentar en Inglés pero seguro estaría lleno de errores horripilantes así que prefiero evitar!!
Después de años de trabajo e intentos de desarrollar una estrategia de éxito llegué a pensar que la solución está en la FRACTALIDAD!
Como sabemos el mundo fractal regula el universo, desde el Big-Bang de la creación hasta los últimos descubrimientos sobre la materia y su composición, las celulas, los atomos, los cristales ..etc
En el Trading existen muchas conexiones con la fractalidad, desde los marcos de tiempos hasta las increíbles herramientas basada en los números de Fibonacci!
Ya he trabajado mucho intentando de simplificar e intender los secretos de los mercados finacieros bajo las reglas de la FRACTALIDAD ... y allí va el proyecto de una estrategia basada en ella!
Vamos a ver algo de realmente increíble, aquí tenemos dos gráficos ... nada de especial, uno bajando, el otro subiendo ...en los dos conseguimos dos operaciones de éxito con relación de ganancia/riesgo de aproximadamente 3:1 ... bieeeen!!!
Bueno ... hasta aquí todo bien ... la entrada buena, el beneficio casi lo mismo.

In this article, I will describe the thesis of my automated trading strategy that I made for the purpose of Dukascopy strategy contest. Trading strategy I use in this contest trades only one currency pair - EUR/USD and it does not use any indicators. The main idea of this trading strategy is derived from the trading times of the eight largest financial centers in the world that are lumped into three sessions known at the Asian, European, and North American sessions. Although the forex market is open 24 hours a day the activity in a given pair is not consistent throughout the day.
Figure 1: EUR/USD volatility
The Asian trading session is characterised by small movements, low volatility, and more binded to previously established support and resistance levels with smaller probabilities of breakouts. Due to this reason my strategy opens countertrend positions in Asian trading session. Trend in question is short-term, defined by a few hourly candles.
Figure 2: Positions opened during low volatility sessions
The European and the North American session experiences some of the largest moves in the market. The volatility hits its peak in New York City where fundamental factors drive the maj…
