Note: I have a lot of new indicators already completed for Tradestation and the upcoming excel plugin- DViXL, and we are just wrapping up beta testing for the new Amibroker release (no fixed probably within a month).
Adaptive ATR stops
adaptive DV2 and excel plug in, please.
Adaptive RSI and DVSC/DVO, please. Have you designed the new indicators to work faster than the current ones?
I think stops are much more important as they allow you to work out your heat (risk) and derive your position size, which is the basis of the money management of a trading system. And Money management is a cornerstone of a succesful trading system.
So… I’d go for 1)
Jez is right… but I think money management becomes less important if one doesn’t have a good system to trade in the first place, right? I hope you do both, David, but right now, I vote 2.
I would vote for #2 – adaptive oscillators. I have never had success using stops other than MAE stops – stops often have a deterimental impact on system performance. Moreover I think it is much more important to diversify among a number of stragies and time frames, and understand proper trade size. That type of money management has a much more meaningful impact on risk adjusted returns than stops on a single system.
I’d like to see adaptive DV[2|SC|O] indicators and DViXL (hopefully with some portfolio performance metrics/visualizations).
I would like to see the adaptive RSI and DVSC/DVO. However, I believe the RSI requires a fixed length, so you would have to devise some other method … which i wouldn’t put past you, David. Like Bill, I wonder if you have designed the new indicators to work faster.
To my eye the exits are where I see room for the most improvement.
Something to speed up the computational time would be lovely.
Adaptive DV2/DVSC/DVO please 🙂
Adaptive RSI/DV2 for me please. Cheers
Adaptive RSI/DV2 …
Number 2 please. Stops are USUALLY hit just when a turn comes. USUALLY. I use mental stops . Thanks.
Adaptive RSI or DV2/DVSC/DVO is my vote
Adaptive RSI or DV2/DVSC/DVO
Having recently moved from TS to NinjaTrader, I’m also interested in obtaining ports of the code to work with that. TY
heywally: Just curious, why did you move from TS to NT?
Without saying anything negative about TS, the support at NT is tremendous, which not only provides users with quick answers but makes me optimistic about future platform upgrades, and they have pretty much everything TS does with the exception of the built-in data history. They have chart trading that connects to my brokerage (IB) …. etc.
Adaptive RSI or DV2/DVSC/DVO please.
I’d go with the adaptive ATR stops, which sound pretty unique. There’s enough fancy-schmanzy indicators out there already, but not much in the way of smart stops.
In the end, money management is where you make your $$. I assume most readers of this blog are familiar with how you can make money with totally random entries if you have good money management practices, which shows the importance of MM. That’s where I would put the emphasis.
I agree with Troy S., both interesting, but I vote #2, thanks a lot!
Good luck counting the votes!
Stops can be quite damaging from my own experience. Given we have already seen quite a rebound I think #2 would stand a higher probability of trading success this year.
