Testing Strategies

Recommended Posts

The link is quite interesting, especially the Pullback strategy, i'm a firm believer in 'simple is best' and that strategy is right up my alley! I wonder how it may pan out if applied to UK stocks or the FTSE? 

Now, I was wondering if you could help me. I've been having a bit of a look around on here over the past couple of nights and your name keeps popping up, so i'm guessing you know your way around here. I'm looking for somewhere to discuss with a few like minded individuals some of my/their trades, focusing on stocks and technical analysis (primarily volume based but anything would be good). Would like to bounce a few ideas around off people who hopefully know more than me, add my input (for what its worth lol) and led a helping hand to anyone which may need some advice (once again, for what its worth). Any help would be greatly appreciated!

Cheers Bando

Hi @Bando, thanks for joining, hope you took a look at the link within the Pullback strategy to see the 'first draft' version  https://jbmarwood.com/a-simple-pullback-strategy/  that set out the very simple rules accompanied with a very respectable equity curve, the second draft in the link I originally posted added a shorting component, would be interesting to see it backtested on FTSE as you say, as well individual stocks, 

You are welcome to post away to your hearts content, there are no clecks here, just create a new thread on anything that interests you, there are quite a few here who are interested more in stocks and shares than other assets and most here are interested in technical analysis so you should get a response. Best of luck.

...and dont forget @Bando if you wish to 'tag' someone to get their attention you can use the @ symbol and then start typing their name. It maybe useful. 

Adding images and charts can help as well, and you should be able to export IG charts using the 'export' feature here.

    • Hi all, On average are Forex markets more suited to mean reversion strategies than say indices or commodities? And do you choose your market type based on the conditions at the time or do you steer clear of some on purpose? Thanks for your insight      
    • Hi, I was wondering how the ban the FCA are planning on crypto trading from the beginning of 2021 will affect IG? Specifically will we be forced to close our CFD crypto positions at the end of this year? Given how volatile they are, I don't want to find my positions being closed out at some arbitrary date. 😟 I haven't seen anything from IG about this, but maybe I've missed it. Hope everyone's having a good trading day. Cate
