Sep Backtesting so far

Unread post by AIMS »

I'm using 2R target, and 1R stop loss using the range of the candle. Min SL will be 10 max 20ish. 

I don't know why but I'm getting some seriously good results for this month. 

Could someone do the same testing as per the TAB in the Scan Sheet. Jasmien posts forex signals to the same sheet. 

So here are the results so far 

No. of Pairs Tested   = 5 
Total Signals and Trades = 24
Total R's  Profit = 30
Winners = 18 Losers 6 
This must be wrong ... Why don't check it for yourself? 
Let's compare our backtesting results. 

To access the Google Sheet go to Forex Signals Page Link is above in on the Navigation Bar above. Or in the First post in this topic, its embedded. click on the Tab Called Backtesting.

Hello Immy,

I have been focusing on the Waltz pattern as well as seeds in a trend.   What kind of statistical results do you get get when you test the Waltz method as well as all seeds only when trading with a nice trend.  Meaning the 10 and 20 ema are in a nice upward slope and you have had an impulsive wave.  

Thank you,

Luke

Hi Luke 

Thanks for the question. I have not done systematic in depth analysis on the WALTZ pattern alone but the seed method or the Inside Bar candles have a proven edge depending on the kind of trade management you apply to it. 

In the backtesting above, you see many seed signals taken. Seeds give us a huge edge because the Risk in terms of pips is small and reward is multiple R's. So WALTZ or HUNT Seeds are my GO TO signals .. 

The most important thing is to see that impulse move before you consider a signal. 

hope this helps 

Cheers 

Immy
