PRT enhancement requests - automated trading


Guest Stef

Question

Hi All,

 

Some ideas for bettering the automated trading functionality in PRT...

 

1) Colour-coding trading sytems

 

When running/testing multiple trading systems at the same time, it becomes difficult to distinguish between positions opened by their respective systems, as can be seen in the image below, especially if the systems are variations of one another and open positions at the same levels (or levels close to one another).

My suggestion would be to have a colour-coding scheme (or numbering system) for the positions in the running systems overview window and for the positions displayed on the charts.

 

2) Toggle positions displays:

 

Related to 1 above, where multiple positions are open, would be the ability to toggle positions displays on/off - to only display on the timeframe that they were opened on (or to display on all timeframes). Reason behind this, if you are running/testing strategies on different timeframes, it would be a lot simpler to only view the blue position line and accompanying information on the timeframe the postion was opened on. This way, you would be able to better tweak opening and closing conditions for different timeframes. At the moment, for example, all positions are displayed on all timeframes, so, a position that gets opened on a 15-minute chart (15 minute system) will show up on your 1 hour and 5 minute charts also - making the display cluttered and confusing. And no, until the backtesting module is fixed/changed to behave the same as the ProOrder system, Probacktest is not the answer.

 

Some variations:

- Ability to toggle the display for all charts from the trading system overview window. In addition to the above, or as an alternative. As an addition would be better, so that you can still "switch off" the display of certain systems that you are currently not looking at. Or at least be able to dim them - if it is a concern that people might lose sight of/forget about their open positions - more of a problem in a live environment as opposed to a test one.

 

- Displaying positions opened on different timeframes in different colours. For instance, displaying all positions opened on a 5 minute chart in one colour, and displaying all positions opened on an hour chart in a different one. When you're trading strategies over different timeframes, this would be a lot better for keeping track of your positions. Curently this is confusing. This would solve the problem of trying to figure out why a postion was opened/event was triggered at a specific level/condition on a chart, only to realise that you are looking at the position on the wrong (different) timeframe chart.

 

3) Realtime export - running systems information

 

The ability to export (via DDE or other method) realtime information about running systems to Excel. This way, you would be able to compare systems over time, by say populating excel tables at set intervals. It would also be easy to compare systems (or variations of systems) in realtime - WRT drawdown, profit, etc., in order to help you decide which systems are performing better than others.

 

This type of functionality (to compare systems) can also be built into PRT, but I guess this will take too long to implement. I am happy to do whatever I want (or need) in Excel, if this information is available as an export.

 

That's all for now!

 

Regards

Stef

 Yeah great idea!

 

I have the same problem and also even if you mouse-hover over the Order then the name of the order cannot fully be seen as it shows up below the Order and of course there is another order there ... as shown in your pic ... and so the order name doesn't fully show.

 

I suggested they set the default Order name to be 'to the right of the Order' (not underneath).

 

I've only got onto this Community today, but in future I'll be putting all my ideas and gripes on here.

 

Cheers

(Ticker: ADI), providing a detailed breakdown of its daily and 4-hour chart patterns. This analysis aims to offer precise insights into ADI’s market behavior, which could assist traders and investors in making more informed trading decisions.   * ADI Elliott Wave Technical Analysis – Daily Chart* Our study reveals that Analog Devices is currently in a counter trend phase with a corrective flat structure, specifically positioned in Minor wave 2 of a larger Intermediate wave (3). The key focus is on identifying the bottom of wave 2. The analysis predicts finding support near the MG2 zone around $180. A bullish outlook is anticipated post-establishing a strong support level, especially above the TL2 at $200. * ADI Elliott Wave Technical Analysis – 4H Chart* The 4-hour chart analysis complements the daily insights by delving deeper into the specifics of wave {c} of Minor wave 2. Consistent with the daily observations, wave {c} has reached a point of equality with wave {a}, signaling a potential completion of the corrective pattern. A final leg lower is expected, ideally surpassing the low of wave {a}, setting the stage for a bullish reversal.   Technical Analyst : Alessio Barretta   Source : Tradinglounge.com get trial here!  
    • The Core of William Mason's Investment Philosophy At the heart of William Mason's investment approach is a keen understanding of market dynamics and an unyielding commitment to empirical research. Mason believes that the key to successful investing lies in identifying and following market trends through a systematic, data-driven approach. His system uses a combination of trend lines, moving averages, and other technical indicators to pinpoint optimal entry and exit points, thereby maximizing investor returns while minimizing risk. Market Analysis and the Current Financial Landscape As we navigate through 2024, the global financial markets present a complex tapestry of opportunities and challenges. Mason points out that despite the apparent volatility, there are underlying patterns that, when understood, can lead to profitable investment decisions. For instance, the performance of Berkshire Hathaway illustrates a less volatile yet highly rewarding opportunity in the current market environment. Berkshire’s stock has demonstrated strong returns with less volatility compared to the S&P 500, making it a prime example of how solid, fundamental investing pays off, especially in uncertain times. Diversification and Risk Management A critical element of Mason’s strategy involves diversification and meticulous risk management. By analyzing companies like Berkshire Hathaway, which holds a diversified portfolio across several robust sectors including insurance, energy, and technology, Mason illustrates the importance of investing in entities with strong fundamentals and diverse revenue streams. This strategy not only shields the investment from sector-specific downturns but also positions it to capitalize on multiple growth avenues. William Mason: Advocating for a Smarter Investing Future Transitioning from theory to practice, William Mason not only devised robust investment strategies but also moved to fill a significant market gap by developing a user-friendly stock trading app. This platform caters specifically to Australian investors, providing them with tools and analytics similar to those used by professional traders. By democratizing access to sophisticated investment resources, Mason aims to empower everyday investors to make informed decisions based on real-time data and comprehensive market analysis.
    • AUDJPY Elliott Wave Analysis Trading Lounge Day Chart,     Australian Dollar / Japanese Yen (AUDJPY) Day Chart   AUDJPY Elliott Wave Technical Analysis FUNCTION: Counter Trend                             MODE: impulsive as C                             STRUCTURE: red wave C                             POSITION:  blue wave Z                           DIRECTION NEXT LOWER DEGREES: black wave C                     DETAILS red wave B of Z looking completed, now red wave C of Z of B looking started . Wave Cancel invalid level:97.779     The AUD/JPY Elliott Wave Analysis for the Day Chart provides an overview of the current market trend and likely future developments in the Australian Dollar/Japanese Yen currency pair, utilizing the principles of Elliott Wave Theory.   Function The function of this analysis is described as "Counter Trend." This indicates that the current wave structure represents a corrective move against the primary trend. Counter-trend movements often suggest a retracement or a temporary shift in market direction.   Mode The mode for this chart is specified as "impulsive as C." This mode denotes a stronger directional movement within the Elliott Wave structure, indicating that the current counter-trend may contain a significant shift or wave progression.   Structure The structure is identified as "red wave C," which typically indicates the final stage of a corrective pattern. This aligns with the function of the analysis, pointing towards a potential transition from correction to a new impulsive phase.   Position The position within the broader Elliott Wave structure is "blue wave Z." This position implies that the current pattern is in a complex corrective phase, potentially consisting of multiple interconnected corrective waves.     Direction for the Next Lower Degrees The analysis suggests that the next lower degree trend is toward "black wave C." This provides a directional cue, indicating where the trend is likely to head following the current wave structure.   Details The analysis mentions that "red wave B of Z" appears to be completed, suggesting that a key part of the corrective cycle has ended. This is significant because it denotes the beginning of a new phase, specifically "red wave C of Z of B." This structure could represent the start of a more substantial movement within the current Elliott Wave pattern, indicating a shift in momentum.   The "Wave Cancel invalid level" is listed at 97.779. This level is crucial for understanding where the current wave structure might break down. If the market moves past this point, the current analysis could be invalidated, requiring a new interpretation of the Elliott Wave structure.   In summary, the analysis outlines a transition in the AUD/JPY pair from a corrective phase to a potentially more impulsive structure. It provides key points to watch for traders and analysts, indicating possible changes in market direction. The critical invalidation level gives traders a boundary for risk management, serving as a guide for trading decisions and strategy adjustments.         AUDJPY Elliott Wave Analysis Trading Lounge 4 Hour Chart,     Australian Dollar / Japanese Yen (AUDJPY) 4 Hour Chart   AUDJPY Elliott Wave Technical Analysis FUNCTION: Counter Trend                             MODE: impulsive as C                             STRUCTURE: red wave C                             POSITION: blue wave Z                           DIRECTION NEXT HIGHER DEGREES: red wave C (started)                     DETAILS red wave B of Z looking completed, now red wave C of Z looking started . Wave Cancel invalid level:97.779                                                       The AUD/JPY Elliott Wave Analysis for the 4-Hour Chart provides insights into the current market trends and future projections for the Australian Dollar/Japanese Yen currency pair using the Elliott Wave Theory.   ### Function The function of this analysis is identified as "Counter Trend." This suggests that the current market structure is moving in opposition to a broader, larger trend. Counter-trend movements often signal corrections or retracements within a larger trend.   ### Mode The mode described in this analysis is "impulsive as C," indicating that the ongoing wave pattern is impulsive and represents a final phase of a correction. Impulsive waves generally signify more substantial and direct price movements within the Elliott Wave structure.   ### Structure The structure for this analysis is noted as "red wave C," indicating that the market is in the final phase of a corrective cycle. This structure aligns with the counter-trend function, suggesting a more substantial correction in progress, possibly signaling the beginning of a new trend or the resumption of the broader trend.   ### Position The position within the Elliott Wave cycle is listed as "blue wave Z," indicating a higher degree of complexity and possible combination patterns. This is part of a larger structure that often involves multiple corrective waves interconnected in a larger pattern.   ### Direction for the Next Higher Degrees The analysis points towards "red wave C," indicating that the current impulsive phase could lead to a broader continuation of the trend, suggesting a transition from correction to impulsion.   ### Details The details provided in the analysis indicate that "red wave B of Z" is looking completed, suggesting that a key part of the correction phase has ended. The analysis identifies that "red wave C of Z" is likely beginning, which represents a more substantial impulsive movement in the current cycle. This is a potential signal for traders to watch for continuation patterns.   The "Wave Cancel invalid level" of 97.779 is crucial. This level acts as a boundary; if breached, the current Elliott Wave pattern becomes invalid, necessitating a re-evaluation. This invalidation level is critical for traders and analysts as it guides their risk management strategies.   In summary, the analysis describes a complex Elliott Wave structure, focusing on the transition from a corrective phase to a more impulsive one. It underscores significant points for traders to watch, indicating potential directional shifts in the market.   Technical Analyst : Malik Awais Source : Tradinglounge.com get trial here!
