Swift Trading System
Swift Trading System is a simple yet stable and powerful trend trading system based on multiple instances of the moving average as well as the RSI and ADX indicators. Additionally, the system utilizes multiple custom safety features to ensure a reliable performance.
No toxic strategies like Grid, Martingale, Averaging or others are used!
This expert also has an option to only trade in the direction of positive swaps which makes maintaining long-term positions a lot less risky and significantly more profitable, but you can also add a timeout to the orders to prevent them from dragging on for too long. Takeprofit and simple as well as trailing stoploss options are available.
The system is easy to set up and provides visual cues about its judgement of the current market situation so you can quickly understand what is happening at any time.
Swift in principle works on any timeframe and with every instrument: currencies, commodities, indices, stocks etc; setting optimizations might be required though.
The glider settings are designed for long-running trades and therefore only trade with positive swaps, the higher your swaps are the more profitable and safer this strategy will be.
Additionally, you can find static settings that disregard the swaps and instead fully utilize the range of different signals the expert can work with. This strategy will also close lost trades if opposing signals are generated.
Live monitoring of the trading system's performance can be found here.
It is generally advised to use the static settings as they should be more reliable than the glider settings. However, if your broker offers high positive swaps the glider settings are certainly more profitable.
Drawdowns can and will occur, so it is important not to push small accounts to their limits.
- Lots (0 = Autolot) - lot size, enter 0 for automatically calculated lot sizes
- Account Balance per 1 Lot (for Autolot) - factor for lot calculation from which the calculated lot size will be scaled down or up
- Stop Trading at Day (0 = Disabled) - do not open new positions from a specific day of the month onwards (but still manage open ones)
- Close Positions after Days (0 = Disabled) - close unprofitable positions with a hard timeout
- Trade only with positive Swap - only perform trades that go in the direction of a positive swap (this might not be possible depending on symbol and broker)
- Check MA Slopes - consider moving average slopes as a trading signal
- Check Average MA Slope - consider the average slope of the moving average as a trading signal
- Check MA Cross - consider a crossing of the market price with the moving average as a trading signal
- Check RSI - confirm trades with RSI
- Check ADX - confirm trades with ADX
- Trade only within a Range - only open positions if the price is above (for sell positions) or below (for buy positions) the range
- MA Period - moving average period to be used for trading signals
- RSI Period - period for the RSI indicator
- ADX Period - period for the ADX indicator
- Length of MA Slopes (>1) - number of bars used to calculate a moving average slope (must be more than 1)
- Number of MA Slopes - number of moving average slopes that should be used to determine a trading signal (only if "Check MA Slopes" is activated)
- Number of MA Slopes for Average - number of moving average slopes that should averaged to determine a trading signal (only if "Check Average MA Slope" is activated)
- Range Period - period for the range calculation
- Range Margin in % - factor by which the range limits are moved closer
- Min Profit in Currency - minimum profit at which positions should be closed
- Close Trades when Trend reverses - close position when the opposite signal is generated regardless of profit
- Use Trailing Stoploss - move the stoploss closer to the trade when it goes in a profitable direction (will be checked every bar and is thus dependent on the timeframe)
- Stoploss in Points (0 = disabled) - points difference to the opening price used for stoploss calculation, enter 0 if you do not want to use a stoploss
- Takeprofit in Points (0 = disabled) - points difference to the opening price used for takeprofit calculation, enter 0 if you do not want to use a stoploss
