This strategy determines the price trend direction by calculating two moving averages with different parameter settings and comparing their crossover situations, so as to implement trend following trading. When the fast moving average breaks through the slow moving average from below, it is judged as a bullish signal. When the fast moving average breaks through the slow moving average from above, it is judged as a bearish signal. This strategy can achieve judgment of trends of different cycles by adjusting parameters.
This strategy uses two sets of moving averages with different parameter settings for comparison. The first moving average parameter is set by len1 and type1, and the second moving average parameter is set by len2 and type2. Where len1 and len2 represent the cycle length of the two moving averages respectively, and type1 and type2 represent the algorithm type of the moving average.
When the fast moving average crosses above the slow moving average to form a golden cross, it is judged as a bullish signal. When the fast moving average crosses below the slow moving average to form a dead cross, it is judged as a bearish signal.
According to the direction of the crossover signal, long or short positions will be executed. When a bullish signal is triggered, if the needlong parameter is true, a long position will be opened with the quantity default_qty_value or percentage_of_equity. When a bearish signal is triggered, if the needshort parameter is true, a short position will be opened with the quantity default_qty_value or percentage_of_equity.
Moving averages have lagging properties and may miss price reversal points
Solution: Appropriately shorten moving average cycles, or use in combination with other indicators
Not suitable for markets with high volatility and frequent reversals
Solution: Add filtering conditions to avoid trading in oscillating markets
There are certain risks of false signals
Solution: Add other filtering indicators for combination to improve signal reliability
This strategy judges the price trend by comparing the crossovers of two moving averages, and makes corresponding long and short operations to capture and profit from trends. The advantage is that the signal rules are simple and clear, the parameters are adjustable, the applicability is strong, and it can be optimized and adjusted for various market environments. Pay attention to prevent the lagging risks of moving averages and choppy markets, which can be reduced by adding other indicators for filtering to improve signal quality.
