Trading System Discussion / Long and Short Signal at same time
« Last post by davidp13 on March 14, 2017, 02:31:33 am »
Good day,

I'm fairly new to amibroker and I'm busy re-building one of my trading systems onto the platform. It trades both LONG and SHORT side across a couple of Future Indexes. I have noticed that when I backtest the system it will produce both a LONG and SHORT signal for the next bar, but when the trade is opened in backtest mostly/only the LONG side is actioned and the SHORT trade is ignored. Why is this so and what backtest type should I rather use to essentially open a LONG and SHORT trade at the same time?

Amibroker Help / Help - Can Amibroker do this?
« Last post by rs_trader on March 02, 2017, 05:11:54 pm »

Can amibroker do the following:

I have several price pattern, named PPT01, PPT02, PPT03, etc.

I want to test each price pattern with another condition (for exemple: RSI(2)<10 AND PPT01 is TRUE)

I think its possible to do this seperatly for each system. what i would like to do is in the same system test all the patterns with the rsi condition using the optimize feature to see wich one is best.

Amibroker Help / Fractals
« Last post by likhazar on February 23, 2017, 08:56:06 am »
Hello, I am totally new here... so first of all Welcome :)

I need your help with creating a fractals indicator for AFL.

I am trying to create an indicator which will check if current bar has higher high than x previous bars and y bars after and then set an arrow over that bar. I have something similar in mql4.

Anyone could help me?
Hi I am a newbie!

is my  zero lag macd afl for the explore function correct? 

Code: [Select]
p = Param("P",12,3,36,2);

r = Param("R",9,3,15,1);

EMA1= EMA(Close,p);
EMA2= EMA(EMA1,p);
Difference= EMA1 - EMA2;

Difference= EMA1 - EMA2;

New to Amibroker and this forum. Have downloaded the trial version from the website. Having one problem - for intraday charts the new bar forms 5mins
before the end of the period (say the new hourly bar for 10:00 starts at 09:55). I am looking at RT data for the NSE -intra day  database settings are : start time 09:00
and end time 16:00. I have changed the settings to 09:15 and 15:30 - still does not work.  I currentle use METASTOCK and the bar times are correct in METASTOCK, so I conclude there is no issue with the rt data.!

Need help to get correct settings for Amibroker.

Thanks for the help

Amibroker Help / Backtesting a portfolio of stocks incorporating Surviourship
« Last post by BruceW on February 21, 2017, 07:23:50 pm »
Hi Folks,

I was hoping that someone can help me with this problem?

I want to backtest a portfolio of stocks, using stocks from a particular index. Over time, the stocks in the index will change, as stocks are either added, or removed from the index.

I have a number of watchlists that replicates the stocks in an index during certain periods ie

WatchlistA (Index 1 January 2014 to 31 December 2014)
WatchlistB (Index 1 January 2015 to 31 December 2015)
WatchlistC (Index 1 January 2016 to 31 December 2016)
WatchlistD (Index 1 January 2017 to 31 December 2017)

My question is, can I do a Custom backtest, whereby the backtest process will use the Watchlist applicable to the time period. If so, any hints on how the afl would be coded?

Many thanks in advance for any help?

Best regards
Bruce W.
