Hi,

I would like to share my personal setting

What building blocks do you recommend?

Heheh, thats a bit like an artist asking another artist : “what paint colors do you recommend”. There is an infinite number of combinations that can be suggested, so it wouldn’t be worthwhile to answer, without an idea of the goal (what are we trying to paint / generate). If Sloth011 is able to share his Config file, i can give specific guidance. Looking at it, I can answer the key questions:

  1. What asset are we trying to trade?
  2. What broker will we be going live with?
  3. What is the initial deposit we will work with?
  4. What frequency do we want trades to occur? (a few times a day? a few times a month?)
  5. What kind of trading system? Trend following? Mean reverting?

Nice, spoken like a pro. Let’s hope Sloth011 shares his config and we can all learn from it.

Hi, I would share my personal setting.

I build from 2013 to 2018 wthit 50% is and 50% oos. In the 2010-2011 I run the first oos and from 2019 to now the second oos. Than i test the Slippage, other markets, other time frame and i run some Monte carlo.

Do you think it’s a good process?

No one has presented a working strategy. It seems like it’s all a pipe dream and a waste of time.

Cheers

Just some thoughts … I see a lot of focus being put by algo traders into forex markets and not sure why. I understand forex market is super easy to access but isn’t that the first warning sign? I do not think these kind of markets are ideal to begin with or rely on them fully. For example there are example over 10,000 publicly traded companies (stocks) just in USA not counting stock exchanges all around the world. Then hundreds of futures contracts and various CFDs contracts for indexes and commodities that allow to trade smaller size if the full contract size if too expensive and risky. Then we have young crypto markets and I would say these are lot less effective compared to forex mostly driven by central banks planning. Forex pairs are full of competition and sideways moves with small of amount of opportunities to profit from especially in times of average or low volatility. I would recommend to really look around and think about where opportunities are. Endless efforts put into datamining does not necessarily have to pay off with forex.

Hi Kris,

Have you investigated the differences to see if its due to your setup. Without access to your actual sqx strategy I can’t tell what the issue you are having is. But in general the following can cause MT4 vs SQX results to diverge:

  1. data – are you using the same data for your SQX and MT4?
  2. SQX setup – have you set your SQX instruments to have the same settings as your MT4? On MT4 check instrument specification and copy across to SQX. I am referring to the pip value etc
  3. Spread – have you checked your tests on MT4 is including current spread?
  4. Other costs – commission, swap on MT4
  5. are you using MT4 tester or demo? you will get slightly different results for that.

On why noone shares their successful strats, this is just human nature. Can you walk up to JP Morgan and ask then to share their process for making money? SQX is a very good platform for developing strategies.

Consider joining up with like minded people on this journey, it helps to bounce ideas off other folks. In addition to this forum you can consider joining this discord channel which I have found useful https://discord.gg/gd6an783
