Stochastic indicator setting, Stochastic-Oscillator
Real increase of capital in the current month - Stochastic indicator setting. The direction of the trend is determined on the basis of the exponential moving average EMA and expected depth of the pullback on the Stochastic indicator.
To determine the trend I choose the EMA indicator because it smoothes the price movement, eliminates local fluctuations and places greatest weight on the most recent data. The stochastic indicator is a momentum oscillator which shows overbought values above 80 and oversold areas values below When the trend is going up EMA is going up the strategy buys in a oversold areas and when the trend is going down it sells in overbought areas. I was testing different settings and statistically I find that in the one month period time to stochastic indicator setting more than 20 position about 15 minutes timeframe is the best choose.
Further test shows that EMA 90, Stochastic 5,3,3 gives nice results. Of course it depends on the liquidity and market conditions.
Max SL is pips and TP 80 pips but the strategy leads opened position according to Stochastic and closing it earlier when Stochastic indicator reaches overbought for longs or oversold for shorts areas. The strategy is using a constant trade volume 6M.
