TDesk, Super Slope TD and XY42

Postby SteveHopwood » Sun Oct 07, 2018 5:10 pm

I am putting this here rather than in the TDesk setups exchange so that we can possibly develop a trading method that can be moved there.

There has been a perfect combination of:
  • My ever-growing faith in Baluda's Super Slope.
  • The arrival of TDesk. Wow, but has that revolutionised manual trading, or what?
  • A 'private' trading aid EA commissioned by zennor.

Here is the trading method I have been developing and am now trading it live:
  • Super Slope on the D1, H4 and H1:
    • All three must agree on a trading direction.
      • They must be >= 1 to buy.
      • They must be <= -1 to sell.
  • TDesk must be showing a multi-signal of >= 50 f0r a buy and <= -50 for a sell.
  • Peaky must agree. I find that trading only when H4 Peaky agrees is the most successful. "Peaky" is the attached Peak HiLo indicator attached. There is a user guide available at SteveHopwood @ My Peak HiLo indi if Peaky is new to you.
  • Trade the M15 charts for the trade trigger.

I apply the relevant XY42 EA when all these conditions are met. This is the EA I coded for zennor - no idea why the name as it was his choice.

There are more details in the User Guide, but here is a brief description of what the EA does:
  • Imagining a buying scenario, zennor wanted these trading aids to:
    • Be applied when he had decided on the trading direction.
    • Send trades as and when appropriate. There are two styles:
      • “Regular” trades to be sent after x consecutive rising candles.
      • “Pull back” buy trades after the market had fallen for x candles – i.e. “buying the pull back".
    • Add new trades every time x candles had moved in the desired direction.

I am trading the M15 charts.

TDesk shows me the signals, so I go to the chart and apply the relevant XY42. I am trading this live on two accounts:
  • 0.03 lots on my main account, dealing with the DD left behind by Peaky during the summer. The individual pair basket tp is $100.
  • 0.01 lots on a second account account, with a starting balance of $1,000. The individual pair basket tp is $100.

There is a post describing my experience up until 3rd November 2018 at SteveHopwood @ TDesk, Super Slope TD and XY42

You will need:

Apply the TDesk.tpl template to a XAUUSD chart. Open a different chart and apply the XY42.tpl. Read the details in the XY42 User Guide. Have some fun.

It does not matter what times you trade as SuperSlope gives you a clear indication of how tradable a pair is. I tried shutting down for the evening as an experiment but found it unnecessary - a few such experiments meant I restarted the demo several times. Here is the result of where I am from just two days last week:

TDesk is the genius development that makes all this possible - it takes about 5 minutes to set load up the relevant EA's, then I walk away.

Have a play and see what you think, folks.

:xm: :rocket:

Edit 21st October 2018:
I have used this system to deal with Slopey Peaky Bob's DD across two live accounts. I have been trading it on a third: here are the results from two weeks:
XAUUSDH1.png


Edit 3rd November 2018:
I continued trading this way throughout Desky's development - in fact I coded some of Desky's features to mirror what I am doing here. Pairs can and do go against me. Here is what I do about that:
  • Leave the trades alone so long as the D1 SS is still in their favour i.e.
    • D1 SS is positive: leave buys open.
    • D1 SS is negative: leave sells open.
  • It is amazing how often the pairs return and all three SS timeframes come back into alignment.

The downside of this is that a pair will be deep into DD by the time TDesk generates an opposite direction signal. Imagining a scenario where there are buys open and TDesk generates a sell signal, here is what I do:
  • Remove XY42.
  • Open a sell trade to the full size of the open buys. From here, 1 of 3 things will happen:
    • The market will grunge around going nowhere for ages and costing me a fortune in swap.
    • The market continues to fall so the hedge trade becomes increasingly profitable. The hope is that when the market turns around again and TDesk generates a fresh buy signal, I can close the sell, bank the profits and watch the DD on the buys diminish.
    • Instead, the market turns around again, and rises. DD on the buys drops and the sell hedge becomes an increasing liability. The hope here is that a future TDesk sell signal will come when those buys are profitable, they can be closed and I can watch the sells DD drop.

The hedging stuff is a bit theoretical as I only have one hedged pair and it is one of those grunging around scenarios. :arrrg: Hey ho; we shall see how this develops. I am hoping soon to let Desky take all this over but I am not yet satisfied that he has no more coding bloops to surprise is with.

Edit 18th November 2018
I am getting great results basket trading with a basket take profit of $25 per 0.01 lots traded.

I had the wrong template in post 1. Sorry about that folks; it should be correct now.

Steve,

Very interesting entry EA. Similar to stop and limit grids but I'm keen to see how the entries turn out. However, I have it on demo and it's throwing up a 130 error when I ask it to put in a safety stoploss of 100 pips. (using StopLossPips set to 100).

I know this is a tried and tested shell so just checking.... is it just me?

Try going to CalculateStopLoss() and try NormalizsDouble ing the stop loss calculation stop = price - (StopLoss / factor);

My settings are in the defaults - the advantage of being the coder.

Right now I am busy with Desky, but some time soon will produce an indi that replicates the candle patterns needed by XY42. Then we will be able to trade all this automatically.

I have automated this. It shows how easy it is to think of a trading system that uses the drone indicators and then automate it without adding a single line of code to anything at all.

I have developed my trading plan - details in, "Edit 3rd November 2018:".

Managing my way out of Peaky's draw down is taking a while, but it is happening slowly. Here are two baskets that closed last week:
Mine.png


Here is progress on a starter account beginning with a deposit of $1,000:
PJ.png


I could be about to test out my hedging theories as I have GBPxxx pairs in DD but we shall see. The D1 SS is turning out to be mighty powerful and is still in the right direction. I have a hedged pair - NZDJPY - and here is how it looks:
NZDJPYM15.png


I might start buying again if the H4 and H1 go over 1. Not sure yet.

All this is possible because of TDesk. Thanks Thomas. :clap: :clap: :clap: :clap: :clap: :clap: :clap: :clap: :clap: :clap: :clap: :clap: :clap: :clap: :clap: :clap: :clap: :clap: :clap: :clap: :clap: :clap: :clap: :clap: :clap: :clap: :clap: :clap: :clap: :clap: :clap: :clap: :clap: :clap: :clap: :clap: :clap:
