Beluck:
and here is expert. try backtesting with default settings on EURUSD H1. not bad

Hello Beluck, can you post backtesting results?

I'm not getting good backtesting results, but perhaps I'm doing something bad.

Best regards.

hello,

My first conclusions are : on this link

There is a bug in the T3MA indicator posted here.

It took a long time to

SetIndexStyle(0,DRAW_LINE);

SetIndexDrawBegin(0,Periods);

if(

!SetIndexBuffer(0,e7) &&

!SetIndexBuffer(1,e2) &&

!SetIndexBuffer(2,e3) &&

!SetIndexBuffer(3,e4) &&

!SetIndexBuffer(4,e5) &&

!SetIndexBuffer(4,e6) &&

!SetIndexBuffer(5,e1)

)

Print("cannot set indicator buffers!");

[/CODE]

Look---the same index buffer is set to e5[] and e6[]. That's wrong.

Change to

[CODE]

!SetIndexBuffer(4,e5) &&

!SetIndexBuffer(5,e6) &&

!SetIndexBuffer(6,e1)

This gives some very different results.

So, we may use two indicators?

Or I do not understand something ...

The same two indicators with SATL (default settings) - see picture.

If the t3 indicator is similar with satl so we may use an other digital indicators just to improve the system.

May be.

So, if t3 is similar with SATL it is the main trend. On the picture:

- T3M in aqua color;

- SATL is blue;

- FATL is white;

- on indicator window 1 is FTLM-STLM.

T3M is the main trend. If FTLM-STLM (STLM let's say) is zero so it is the reverse point (for T3M). If the FATL and SATL are going on the same direction it is the very strong trend.

Growing STLM and growing SATL in the same time is evidence of the bullish trend acceleration. Horizontal and positive STLM and growing SATL is evidence of the set bullish trend. The more absolute the value of STLM, the more potential the bullish trend has. Falling STLM at falling SATL testifies the bearish trend acceleration.
