    Default PSar Supertrend

    hi viv108,

    that is actually the problem:

    if the EA will jump only once a time on a trend i will use PSar settings 0.04,0.20 on a H1 timeframe. (to get more entry points)

    if i get the EA to jump always on the trend, when they are showing same both signal, then i will use 0.02,0.10 on a H1 timeframe. (to reduce loss trades)

    the supertrend setting are always 25 at all nbr_periods.

    That's why i asked the second question @ my last post. Let's wait if someone give a hint. I try to fix it my self, but i'm really great noob in writing programms.

    Default PSar Supertrend EA

    Hi, it's me again...

    I think i fixed the problem, the EA can be only used on higher timeframes (over 30min). And the nbr_periods have to be set higher than 20. Otherwise the colour will change often, sometimes i saw colour change between the last three candles!

    The other problem will take some time...

    Have a nice day

    Default PSar Supertrend EA

    Lo viv108,

    i'm trading since one jear with parabolic sar and other indicators manually. For me, parabolic sar works fine.

    This week i'm testing the PSar Supertrend EA on demo Account. So i will write on friday the result. But i think, it looks good.
    And this test is only possible because of funyoo. He was so kindly to write the EA for me. So thanks for this friendly community here

    Regards

    Criss

    Default PSar Supertrend EA

    Hello,

    I had run the EA since Monday still now on three currencypairs. EUR/USD and EUR/GBP on 30 min. and at GBP/USD on H1 timeframe. I stopped some minutes ago. The colour of the supertrend changes also on higher timeframes. With this, it is senseless to use the EA. I have attached a image. You will see opend buy orders while supertrend show downtrend signal and vice versa. The basement is always the colour change for some minutes of supertrend.

    But although, i think this can be a very good EA. I would give this EA another try on Demo next week. But i would like to change the exit rule. The exit rule " close position when supertrend changes coulour" has to be connected with the rule "close position when parabolic sar changes signal". So only when both showing opposit signal, the position getting closed. I searched some hours in the code but i did not found the right place. Can someone tell me?

    Regards

    I know I'm getting in on the thread a little late here but I see that Automatic brought up an interesting point about ranging periods between sessions. I have traded a system similar to double psar manually and had relatively good results, better I would say, than the back tests. I believe that this is partly due to the fact I shut it down during the middle of the day (where I am, PST) when markets are ranging. Every pair has different volatility at different hours too, which might be worth knowing. Depending on your tF this may or may not be an issue. I trade the 1HR.

    just my two cents, Ryan

    Hi funyoo thanks a lot, just a little mod, could you plz remove the trailing stop code from thie latest version and use the original version one.

    I find the original version trailing stop code method better because it trails from the positive pips. the latest version trailing stop, gets hit most of the time especially when you specify 10 minimum. Thanks again.

    Cheers.
