Opening Range Breakout (ORB) - Intraday Trading System

#31
rk,
you mean, we need to track the day's high when we are long and day's low when we are short? am not sure how do i get these value from amibroker.. i will figure it out
Amibroker gives that in backtest results . . .
look for the columns called MAE, MFE

thats what exactly RKK wanted . . .

MFE - max favorable excursion
MAE - max adverse excursion


:) Happy


EDIT:

and putting in profit stops is very easy . . . use

ApplyStop(1,2,R);

where R is the opening range you are getting

I have just pasted the lines suggested by HappySingh in "Augubhai's ORB System v1.1" AFL for the benefit of all.

I do not know AFL coding.

Thanks

Happy,

It would be great if you could make the following changes in the code.


1. After breakout of 5 Mins bar, the position needs to be exited once the Target of 10 points is reached.

2. Stop loss is when 5 mins bar closes above/below the opening range. (i.e. above/below 1st 5 mins bar)

3. If neither Target or Stop Loss is hit, the position should be exited @ 03:20 PM @ market price.

4. When backtesting, it should be considered as Intraday trade. i.e no positions should be carried over.


I guess the 3rd point will not happen as the target is very less, either the target or stop loss will be triggered before 3:20PM. If you feel the same, you can skip this part in the code.

I tried making the changes in the code, but its not showing the correct results. I think am writing a wrong code in the

stop loss part. Pls help. Thanks.

Hi

Before we change any code try setting a profit stop of 10 points . . .
can set it in Backtest Settings >> Stops >> Profit > Points > 10 > exit intraday at stop

Without the SL if you are getting enough number of winners then only one should try introducing a SL.

:) Happy

Thanks Happy.

I checked it and i could see 80% of total trades achieved the target. With the present AFL, the entry and stop loss condition varies completely.

Could you please help out in implementing the below conditions.

1. After breakout of 5 Mins bar, the position needs to be exited once the Target of 10 points is reached.

2. Stop loss is when 5 mins bar closes above/below the opening range. (i.e. above/below 1st 5 mins bar)

80% is good success ratio... :thumb::thumb:
