Thank you rgd, ingenious great start. Thank you Eventhorizon. I assume you are talking about futures contracts? I would be grateful if you have time you could give a simple and obvious example. Testing so far has shown some very strange trades which may be my programming or directly related to your ...

Blox for testing entry based on percentage move?

Is there an entry blox with a pararmeter for % instrument change?

If not can anyone give me some clues on how to program blox to do so?

% change could be from test start date.

TIA
Medius.

Jez, One way round this might be to run your TB simulation with say $1,000,000 and risk set to your desired level. Then trade using 1-5% of your own account size utilising the stops exits and entries generted by TB. Subject to your account size you may need to modify your TB portfolio to reflect the...

Jens You mention you operate using a 6 ATR stop may I ask how much you risk per trade in terms of percentage of your account? If I adjust the stops on my simulation to 6 ATR I go from a simulated 29% CAGR to 10% and TE DD of 22% down to 15%! Using data from 1996 to today. Regards Medius Sluggo and a...

Hi Matt, I've been using a combination of solutions. 1. Firstly I try not to advertise stops to the market at all. (Unless I'm being compromised by my own account size related issues running out of margin etc). My account size is a lot less than the $1m recommended. 2. I bought TB builder. 3. I down...

Thanks sluggo great idea. However Risk Management doesnt have an Entry Order Filled script option? Well as far as I can see.

Edit:
Ok thanks Roger.

I've written a Risk Management block to readjust stops based on riskEquity and a frequency parameter (none,daily, weekly monthly and yearly). The next step is to test readjusting/rebalancing by selling into the market and repurchasing. This I've written but I'm not sure the additional orders are bei...

For the purposes of testing rebalancing can we? Automate contiguous simulations ? If so how? And can we pass the End Balance (or any other simulation results like positions exited due to test end etc) of one simulation to the Test Starting Equity of another? (Without having to do it manually). My ap...

Volatility Pumping or CRP Constant Rebalancing Portfolio?

Hi,

Has anyone developed blocks for Volatility Pumping or CRP?

Or can anyone suggest how CRP may be simulated with existing blocks?

Thanks in advance

Ok Levijean point taken thanks for letting me know. TB builder is on the shopping list, but, right now I suspect it would be like giving a 5 year old child an Indy car to learn to drive in. I'm happy finding the limits of my understanding of probability, simulation and reality using TB Turtle. Too m...

Any trader using a buy on open strategy have a rule for executing the trade in the market like using a limit order, waiting for the US open or just buying at local (say UK) market open immediately? Since trying to follow the simulation the exits have been good but an entry today although better than...

The system hadnt but I had! I'm using a Donchian system with a fairly hefty offset for the exit breakout. In testing, exiting on the day of the signal, not the preferred open of the following day, things seem ok. CAGR just slightly less than the MAX TEDD. Manually running the system as Levijean sugg...

Thanks sluggo "follow the system" is has a proven tested outcome. Levijean, following our discussion on not using stops in the market: I had an instrument go through an exit level during US time thus exiting me from the simulation. Therefore time to exit the broker position on the open. At the UK op...

Further thoughts ok so the stop gets triggered by a spike but then the instrument resumes trend. Do you?

a) Exit?
b) Check your out orders list and see if the instrument is still on the list and if so just revise the trailing stop to that of the new order?

Originally my thinking was if the system made the Turtles so rich why bother with anything complicated.

I trialed the Builder version after reading WOTT, having not seen a trading system before it was a bit overwhelming.

Now I know a little more I see what you mean.

Lazy may be...but it sounds like youve done a lot of work, thinking and testing up front. Gives a whole new meaning to LTTF though. I'm using TB Turtle edition at the moment so unfortunately I cant make the code changes you suggest. I'm wondering how I can approximately simulate the trade entry and ...

Levijean do you do the same thing with Entry orders? i.e. wait for the simulation and enter on the the following open?

After the hastle of maintaining a similar number of stops what your suggesting seems almost theraputic.

Excellent thanks Levijean, sounds a scary but very practical solution.

Is it possible to simulate the exit you describe using TB? If so how?
