Customize Fibonacci levels

Recommended Posts

All trading involves risk. Losses can exceed deposits.

Hi All,

 

I am happy to announce a new feature on the New Web trading Platform, you will now be able to edit your Fibonacci levels. You can do this by right clicking on the Fibonacci drawing and then select the option to edit. This will then prompt you with a window like the one below from where you can specify your levels. This edit tool applies to the Fibonacci extension and retracement.

Let me know what you think of this new tool or if you have some suggestions on how it could be improved.

 

Thanks

Anton

The input does not support negative value. This will give the total freedom to customize.

Hi ,

 

A couple of things would be good:

 

1. The option to place the Labels (values) at either the right or left of the Fib. At the moment they are on the left so when you move down a timeframe or two you can see the dotted line but not the Fib value or price level.

 

2. Also the ability to extend the levels. Currently you have to go in and drag the endpoint across to get the Fib to span across as time progresses.

Hi  & ,

 

I had a discussion with our chart developers to get as much information on your queries as possible.

 

I have some good news regarding the negative values, this is already possible. To enter a negative value you would need to double click on the Fibonacci drawing to bring up the customization box. From here you can manually change the figures to negative by adding a - in front of the number.

 

The option to place labels on the left/right or center of the drawing is something that is already being looked into so it is coming, however I was not able to get a definitive date as yet.

 

Extending the Fibonacci levels indefinitely could prove quite tricky, but after discussing it with the developers they believe it is worth looking into so this could also possibly be something they could add in the near future.

 

Thank you for all your suggestions, they will certainly improve the Fibonacci drawing. Please let us know of any other improvements you can think of.

 

Thanks

Anton

    • Hey @dmedin. That news piece is something I long suspected. If anyone can move the market with just one tweet then why shouldn't the cronies profit from it. I'm just surprised this has taken so long to get to the "news".
    • Ok, so I took this approach to the next level. Rather than telling the algorithm enter long at 25% and enter short at 75% levels, I decided to let the algorithm decide itself at what levels its best to enter short or long. This simplifies the strategy and boosts its gains dramatically. Top level stats over 100,000 5min candles: Gain: +1,307% % of winning trades: 60% Starting with a £2000 account, after 1 year and 1 quarter that account would have grown to almost £30k (£28k). The equity curve looks also a lot more stable, too. I resolved the issue with the lot size, this is now a formula. Unfortunately we still have 3 negative months, but overall the max runup is a lot higher than the max drawdown. Overall time in market is only 20%, so there should be the opportunity to run multiple of this strategy on different assets simultaneously to further boost the return. If let's say 3 of these programs could run simultaneously and deliver similar results you could grow £2000 to £100k within about 18 months. Still not as good as the results of the few world-class top traders like Ross Cameron from Warrior Trading, etc but a start nonetheless. The variables which the program optimised are the following: Take Profit for Long Positions: 84 points Take Profit for Short Positions: 70 Points Entry LvL for Long Positions: 23 Points below the low of previous day Entry LvL for Short Positions: 7 Points below the high of previous day Interestingly, it turned out the strategy works best without a set stop-loss, but just to close out any open positions at 21.00 o'clock at night, if not already closed by the take profit rule. I'm gonna simulate this on NASDAQ next. Obviously will need to find out the 4 variables again, as these will be subject to the Index where this is traded.   What do you guys think? Worth a shot this strategy?  
    • Lool, I'm sorry for my first post here, but it's funny :)
