Self Optimizing RSI or MFI Trader:

This robot optimizes the values it uses for overbought and oversold based on what would have been profitable during the Optimization periods(bars) back. Using the strategy of selling when the index indicator crosses below overbought and buying when the index indicator crosses above oversold.

 First,thanks to Author for his efforts and contribution,it is really very explanatory code (brief descriptions at mostly important code lines inside code) for to better understanding,yes there is much room to be extended,for example some more needy features and possibility to apply best custom indicators (rsi/mfi) in place built in - time control and some kind filtering trade features.

Thank you mntiwanna for your comment.

I think you have a genius idea there with creating the ability to optimize custom indicators, I did not think of that before, but it seems to me to be a real possibility.

So, to sum up, your comment I have found three salient points.

  1. Add the ability to optimize custom indicators.
  2. Add some time of time controls, I presume for when to trade and when not to.
  3. Trade filtering features.

Could I request that you elaborate a little on the trade filtering features, what trade filtering features would you recommend? I am thinking of say using another indicator such as the Average Directional Index (ADX) to limit when a trade is taken or not. Something like if ADX is below 25 take trades that counter the current trend and if it is above 25 take trades with the trend. But I am sure I don't know what filtering methods are best.

Thanks again.

Hi John Davis,

Nice work. I'm assuming you are training using brute force. You could implement the training using Particle Swarm, my favorite or the Genetic Algorithm, both significantly faster.  Both can be found on the forum by a quick search.

Yes,ADX is pretty ok including 3 MA crossing addition - some experts advises to see in HTF what happening there as for one more additional confirmation

but i dont know about brute force and or particle swarm,can you explain shefard how it can be applied here when fixed values are already adapted

Hi mntiwana,

Brute force refers to a training method that goes through all the possible combinations in optimization. What method are you using?
