Initial capital: $5000
Commission: *set to approximate for 10 option contracts
Back testing range: Feb 22 - Apr 4, 2022
How it works:
When trading the indices, many rely on the TICK for market directions. This strategy is a trend following strategy that uses a combination of conditions using the following indicators:
- VIX volatility index
For entries, the conditions are:
1. TICK moving average crossover with a delayed signal line
2. Bullish or bearish RSI signal, RSI > 50 for bullish , < 50 for bearish
3. VIX must be above a certain threshold to take advantage of high market volatility
4. Price must be on top of EMA line for long, and below for short
5. Price has not moved significantly already (this delta can be set)
For exits, there are 3 scenarios:
1. Stop loss set by a percentage of the daily ATR value
2. Trend changes on the TICK and the RSI
3. Bearish or bullish divergence on price with TICK
This strategy automatically signal to close all trades at 3:50 pm EST at the end of the day.
- There is an option to show P/L for reinvesting profits
1. Added option to trade TICK divergences (regular bullish / bearish divergences)
2. Added option to use Stochastic RSI for optimal entry (ie. when the stochastic RSI is in the lower range for longs, upper range for short)
3. Added option to "chase" the trend after an exit is the conditions are still favourable
4. Added option to hold 1/2 positions overnight on Tues / Thurs
All of these options can be turned on/off~
- Trade with price target -> default to ON
- % ATR for price target -> changed from 23 to 17.5
- RSI signal length -> changed from 5 to 6
- RSI moving average line -> changed form SMA to WMA method
- Removed pause trade on significant price movement
