Multi instrument EA
1 year ago #259805
Is any one using SQX to create multiple currency EA’s?
If so have you any advise on what set up to use? i am trying to create a strategy that works reasonably well across all majeure currency pairs when combined in to a portfolio.
I don’t particular mind if it doesn’t work perfect an all pairs just along as when its in the portfolio it has a positive expectancy?
I am trying to create a workflow to build this sort of strategy using random generation i am aware it will take a lot of computer time to find this kind of strategy.
any tips or advice would be appreciated.
i would use atr in the build to help cater for the natural volatility differences between currency pairs
It will be tough I guess to get such strategy but it is an interesting task. Personally I would be happy if the strategy works on at least 2 major pairs

One way to check for strategies that work on multiple currencies
1) Create your basic checks/ Building blocks
2) There are 2 Option to continue
A) In work Flow use retest and filter to filter the strategies on all the currencies you want to try , if you use this I’d suggest a separate data bank for each currency to filter the passing strategies to.
B) Is in Cross checks use the Backtest on Additional Markets, again include all the markets you want to test and set the conditions so only the strategies that pass enough of the additional markets are sent to the Data bank
I know everyone suggest using ATR, I don’t think it’s a good measure to use in stoploss, maybe as a method to gauge volatility of a market. Here is a link to a Podcast that I think highlights the issue with ATR.

Thanks for that information. I am a 100% discretionary trader using fundamental analysis do determine direction and then basic fundamental analysis for entry’s and stop losses but their are too many variables in classical charting and PA I would much rather just have a simple entry and exit method which is what I am trying to achieve.
