Fantastic work MooMooFX! :o

One question I have is how can I setup the getTradingDayOffset parameter, 5pm as the end and beginning of a trading day.

Thx

As implemented this is not possible at this time.
You can can only use chart data, provided by FXCM servers.

Is this strategy written to work with today's pivot points or from the day before? I'm testing it without trading and the pivot points are always moving so it is not actually based on yesterday's pivot points. Can this be fixed?
Thx again!

The strategy is based on the current values of the Pivot Points indicator. This is how most people use the Pivot Points indicator. This can be confirmed if you look at the screenshot in the original post.

Are you saying you would like to request an enhancement that it be able to use yesterday's pivot points?

Hi MooMooFX
I tried to test the strategy based on the weekly pivot points, but the program did not open any position. You can see what's going on?
thank you

Hi Paulo C,

I looked into this briefly and identified an issue that impacted timeframes greater than D1 so I have quickly resolved this. Quick testing in the backtester looks good.

Please re-download the strategy from the first post and let me know if it is is not fixed for you.

Your other enhancement request is still on the to-do list unfortunately.

Cheers,
MooMooFX

For some reason I can't install this or any other strategy. I try to click and drag it to my chart but when I do it shows the circle with a line through it. You know the stop sign, symbol. Just wondering if it is something I'm doing or something on fxcodebase's end. Is anybody else experiencing this same thing or have a solution? I have downloaded many things from here I just don't know why it's not working now.
Thanks,
FJFX

Hi,

I backtested this strategy today with different currency pairs and found there is a problem. Since I only sell at R and buy at S and only close with limit of 10 (I don't close at PP), I should only have increasing balance although my equity will drop from time to time. I noticed a few sudden drop in my balance and then I checked run history.

I found that wherever there is a sudden drop in balance, there is a 'USD/JPY order' showed up in the middle of the events and closed all my orders. I should note that this bug only happens after 2-3 runs.

Could you please explain and fix this? Thank you!
