If it is calculating TMA Centered then it is recalculating, is it possible to replace TMA centered calculation with JMA or any other MA ?Thanks.
Thank you mladen!
But..is there another option to do a good backtests?
Thank you in advance!
As far as metatrader EAs are concerned, there is no other acceptable (100% compatible) way of backtesting
It can not be made the way you set it up (and I recommend that you do not use it the way you set it up). Let me explain : when two indicators are placed ate the same subwindow metatrader is adjust the vertical position of the two (if they do not have the same minimum and maximum value - and MACD does not have a known minimum and/or maximum). So it completely depends on the minimum and maximum values of the indicator on the visible segment of the chart you are currently observing. And there is the catch : if the minimum or maximum value of the indicator changes then all (including the places where you have those crosses) will change
In short : you will have a heavily repainting indicator. As a test : place it on a 1 minute chart and observe how will the crosses change places as the time passes (and minimum and maximums change).
On the other hand, if we place two MACD indicators in the same subwindow and anchor them to 0, the crosses will always happen on a place where MACD crosses 0 line.
Ohh ok thanks for explaining it Mladen.
Thank you mladen,
so, I understand that you can find another way to backtest (without metatrader). Could you teach me on that or give me a reference/link to learn it?
For example, what is your method to try the codes (it's what I really want to know, because I thought it was with MT4)? If is this case, do you know other similar/better?
Two different questions...but talking about the same, more or less.
There were some alternative to metatrader back-testing and I was trying one or two but I gave up due to too much incompatibilities
So, for that last 2-3 years the code I always try with metatrader and frankly do not know a better way to test it
Will see what I can do but can't make any promises on it.
Hi Mr Tools or Mladen, can you make this Stix indicator multi-time frame please? Also if you can make an EA version of it too, that would be great. Thanks.
Protrade this is the mtf version and a stripped down EA version.
