Optimizing the Signals Accuracy
Not every candlestick pattern performs equally well. You should enable/disable the appropriate patterns for the chosen instrument and time-frame. Also, you can quickly improve the accuracy of the signals by following these simple steps:
- Make sure each pattern is set to True.
- Choose the "Success Benchmark Pips" you're looking to achieve on each signal.
- Turn-off each pattern one by one and monitor the success rate percentage.
- If turning off a particular pattern improves the success rate, keep it off.
- If turning off a particular pattern worsen the success rate, set it to True again.
- Adjust the value of "Min. Bars Between Patterns" between 10 to 50.
Increasing the value of "Min. Bars Between Patterns" will usually improve the success rate. However, a high value will significantly decrease the number of signals, so you must select a balanced value between 10 to 50.
