    Also, when I go to get the Daily[1] Close price, it always seems 3 pips higher than the actual close price of the bar. And my spread is set to 5 pips. What could be wrong?

    Thanks

    Ok, thanks for your advice, I’ll try that out.

     

    I’ve loosened my parameters and managed to get some strategies listed! Now, I am running robustness checks on these strategies on different timeframes and another currency, as the tutorial recommends. I have come up with something that looks very profitable, nice equity curve which actually gets better during out of sample time. The strategy looks really good.

     

     

    This brings me to another Q: Does the SQ strategy builder build these robots on a test rig using tick-by-tick data or open of bars?

    When I download the best strategy that’s passed all the robust checks, I load it into MT4. When I backtest it on exactly the same asset, T/F, spread and time range, on both open bar and tick-by-tick, I get entirely different results. The strategy is actually losing money, and the equity line is all over the place, not like the SQ builder equity line. Tick by tick results is 90% modelling accuracy on MT4 backtest.

     

    Am I missing something, and how to get 99% accuracy?

     

    Thanks again in advance for your help. Julian

    Thanks for your assistance. I’m getting a FILTERSYMBOL error, it can’t recognise that file.

     

    This is well above my understanding. I’d like the symbol options to appear as checkboxes just like the dates and days of the week.

     

    That way we can include or exclude the symbols we want. Please can Strategy quant add this feature to the analyzer? It would be such a useful filter to have, and It’s a no brainer!!

    I’ve tried using:

     

    Stop loss set as a pips range:

     

    Pricedifference ( Openprice, SL)

     

    Still no success.

    Hi Mark

     

    I’d really like to see pending orders modify function in the THEN box. Also is it possible to make an EA based on a trendline break? There doesn’t seem to have this function here, but it’s available on EABuilder, if you could add a trendline indicator, so price would cross a trendline drawn on the chart that would be awesome!

    Hi Stearno, 

     

    Yes, I got the EA taking trades now, thankyou. I notice however, it’s only taking buy trades, and again I think it’s to do with the glitch in EA wizard’s fractals calculations.

    Appreciate the input Tomas262

    Hi Stearno,

     

    Thankyou for this advice – I realise what you were saying and still tried to shift 3 the fractal indicator – There’s definitely a glitch in EA Wizard’s fractal indicators, signals work on buys but not sells.

     

    Despite loading your EA, I can’t seem to get it to take any trades. I’ve saved it now as an indicator and it doesn’t show any signals at all, and even when I change IndiShiftForFractalChannel to 5. I’ll maybe have to ask some advice about how to get it signalling trades. This is a very interesting strategy because it’s more purely price action based.

    Stearno,

     

    This is a fantastic indicator and shows me exactly what I’ve been looking for! It shows me the fractal highs & lows – It reminds me of the donchian channels.

    I’ve loaded it into my custom indicators in EA wizard – There’s just one thing. I’ve tried to use it in my formula for a signal indicator, firstly to specify a few conditions but it doesn’t seem to be working for me. For example, I have this as an example pseudo code:

     

    // Rule 1
     
    IF ((Bid Crosses Above CustomIndicator( “Fractal Channel” )[1]))
    THEN
       Buy 0.1 lots at Market
          Magic Number = 1000;
     
    END IF;
     

    The problem with this is there doesn’t seem to be a way to specify ‘IF’ price crosses above the upper fractal channel line, or IF price crosses below the lower fractal channel line. And I’m not sure this code by itself would work properly as a signal indicator either. Any chance you could point me in the right direction?

     

    Thanks again,

     

    Julian

    Hi Stearno,

     

    Thanks so much! Is there supposed to be a file attached to your reply? I’d like to test it out. Appreciate your gift very much.

    Hi Stearno,

     

    Thanks, it helps a bit. Unfortunately finding the last upper fractal requires custom coding as the shift specifies the last candle not fractal. Is there someone on this forum that would be able to code this for me for a fee? I’d like to select it to find the price value of the last upper & lower fractal. Thanks

    Thanks for your reply stearno.

     

    I thought of making a simpler condition – If bid price goes above the last upper fractal, then… paint up arrow. This is just a simple component of something more advanced I want to do.

     

    So far I’ve got it right, I’m sure, but there seems to be a bug in the fractals – Using buy & sell signals with the same programming, but getting different signals which look incorrect on BUYS, and correct on SELLS. 

     

    I saw someone else in the forum commented on faulty upper fractals when he was trying to use them as stops.

    Attached is my file, glad if you took a look and assist, thanks

    Thanks tomas262.

     

    Please can you tell me when that new EA Wizard update including the order modify is likely to be released?

    Thanks for your reply.

     

    The magic numbers are meant to replace the existing orders which is why they are the same. I think the pending order modify function is really what I need. Would be great to see it added soon – I’m even willing to pay to have that function added to EA wizard as it’s the most important one I need, I have had to have it custom coded. I am having a lot of success with the custom mod done to my EA wizard expert
