How do we do trailing stops less than 1%?
It seems to default to 1% as the smallest %
Manual is pretty basic.
03-14-2013 10:50:46
BruceB_RR
Hey Cosmo,
Not sure what you mean for sure about the trailing stop. I did one with a trail less then 1%

cosmo
Mine goes in increments of 1%
03-14-2013 10:53:21
BruceB_RR
Yeah, I think that they meant for the manual to be pretty basic. 
I typed it in.
03-14-2013 10:53:54
cosmo
Try to save and see what you get.
03-14-2013 10:54:49
BruceB_RR
Saved like I have it above.
03-14-2013 10:55:29
cosmo
Mine goes to zero when I save
03-14-2013 10:56:16
BruceB_RR
Are you using a negative value? 
If it is a Long that is ;)
03-14-2013 10:57:05
cosmo
Long day I guess. Yea that was the problem. Sorry to bother you :)
03-14-2013 10:57:25
BruceB_RR
Not a problem at all :)
It has been a bit quite around here the last few days.
03-14-2013 10:57:58
cosmo
Anything else new? I've been working on a project.
03-14-2013 10:59:33
BruceB_RR
Nothing new yet as far as when they will announce Live trading. I hope to hear something soon. (But I thought soon was the first of this month ) 
I'm adding their Training Manual to the site so I can add side menus and linking to it. :)
03-14-2013 11:01:49

I let it run today whilr I was working with it running a swing strat and a scalp strat. The scalp strat ran flawlessly but nine of the swings held over closed today. I'll have to wait a day to see if they should have in BT. I manually closed them.
while
none
03-14-2013 11:04:59
BruceB_RR
Mine ran quite well today. I had one reverse directions on me. But I think I saw something in the manual that might explain what is happening there, or at least how they are explaining it anyway.

Anyway, My wife has the TV on Pause so I guess I should get back to her ;)

Grabbed the tablet :-) 
Did you rebuild that Strat that wasn't fireing?
03-14-2013 11:21:31
cosmo
The one I have?
03-14-2013 11:21:50
bb
Yes
03-14-2013 11:22:24
cosmo
It still does not work in the new form.
Simpler versions of it do work
And match to TOS charts
03-14-2013 11:25:18
bb
Hmmmm, I completely rebuilt the one I have and ît now works fine.
03-14-2013 11:26:51
cosmo
I've been busy with work so have not spent much time with it. I'm going to to look at it over the weekend.
03-14-2013 11:26:58
bb
Still wondering what was actually broken.
when did you write yours?
03-14-2013 11:29:23
cosmo
I'm going to build in a few different versions with some parts removed to see what it does next week. It does not fire a lot so some days there are no hits...swing strat.
I don't remember when I wrote the original however I know it was post 5.0 release.
Time for bed here.
03-14-2013 11:37:13
bb
Is it one that you wrote before they fixed the file system?
03-14-2013 11:37:26
cosmo
Yes
03-14-2013 11:37:43
bb
OK, have a good night :-)

no right click enabled on my mouse...I could if I wanted but I have to be diff!
RR - question for you...
I'm reading Mobius' article he posted titled: Basic Design for Program Trading...
at the bottom of his article he states that 'General principles indicate volatility verifies a trend change...'
based on that statement, look at the chart (daily) of AMZN and what do you see? Has the trend changed and is volatility confirming it? Just curious I'm reading his statement correctly and making sure I'm apply his thinking correctly.
(applying)
03-15-2013 08:35:27
BruceB_RR
Hey PM, I guess it depends on how you measure the volatility. 
I am looking at a Bollenger Band(), Width is maybe getting wider and the Centerline SMA(20) is maybe starting down. But if you look at the 10 period it is more noticeable. 
BB was 20 also (dumb numlock) ;)
03-15-2013 08:51:46
Praying_Mantis
A good way of looking at volatility is the Swami Volatility indicator. It shows all time periods. But, essentially it's saying the same thing as BB's are.

BruceB_RR
I was looking at google finance chart so I didn't have a lot of choice as to what I could look at ;)
My ChartTraderPro seems to be down. But Backtesting is fine. Not sure what is up with that???
