Thread: EA for Fx Fish Indicator

  1. #21

    Default

    Funyoo,

    The EA stars out good. It opens a trade per bar as long as the Fish indicator is above or below the levels indicated (.5 or -.5, or whatever the user enters).

    The trades at the beginning of the trend will most of the time become profitable once the level reaches ZERO.

    HOWEVER, the trades opened later as the trends reverses become the losers - more than enough to offset the winners. That's why the account blows up in the end.

    Funyoo, can we have the EA to open ONLY at the start of the trend. When you have the time.

    Also can you add a second close option using the same indicator but with a DIFFERENT PERIOD (Customizable by user) - example: EA period is 14, Close positions when indicator with period 10 reaches ZERO. In this case we close the positions early, saving some precious pips.

    Time filter also appreciated.

    Thank you

    Funyoo,

    1 more request. I know you are busy. Can you separate the exit rules for the sell and buy based on Level.

    Sell Exit Level: user input
    Buy Exit Level: user input

    thank you

    After tinkering with this EA/indicator for the whole week, I have come up with the following revamp of the EA:

    Separate LONG and SHORT entry levels
    -Long when still in the red but Level is going UP -example at level going up -1
    -Short when still in the red but Level is going DOWN -example at level going down +1

    Separate CLOSE positions:
    -Close long position upon reaching a certain level (user input/changeable by user)
    -Close short position upon reaching a certain level (user input/changeable by user)

    Add MA filter
    Add time filter
    Add entry for indicator options-the smoothing numbers (changeable by user)
    Add second Close option when
    -using the same indicator but with a DIFFERENT PERIOD (Customizable by user) - example: EA period is 14, Close positions when indicator with period 10 reaches ZERO. In this case we close the positions early, saving some precious pips

    Thank you funyoo. I know it is asking a lot. I wish I know how to code. It your time. thanks again

    The EA starts out good after opening a position, but the profits get wiped out as the level goes back to Zero. In most cases, it becomes a looser in the end. A better exit strategy must be incorporated.

    Back testing has been disasters also.

    Any idea Funyoo?
    Hi bcajes,

    You can use maxtrades = 1 or changedirection = false.

    Could you change this EA so it only uses the fixedfish indicator. Right now it is using both the fixed indicator and the repainting indicator Fisher_Yur4ik. Could you put an option in the EA so we can either use just the fixedfish indicator or both if we wish.

    Thanks
    Hi maree43,

    Fixedfish and fisherur4ik option added.
