Comparing daily close prices as a strategy.
This strategy is equal to the very popular "ANN Strategy" coded by sirolf2009(1) which calculates the percentage difference of the daily close price, but this bar-bone version works completely without his Artificial Neural Network (ANN) part.
Main difference besides stripping out the ANN is that my version uses...
Here is an another attempt to demonstrate repainting and how to avoid them. It happened few times to me that I develop a strategy which is giving immense returns - only to realize after few forward testing that it is repainting. Sometimes, it is well disguised even during forward testing.
In this simple strategy, conditions are as below:
Buy : When a 3M bar...

There is a code that can control sensitivity. try to change 'ATR Multiplier' menu
There is a code for prevent 'repaint'. If you want it check 'Forces Non-Repainting' menu

This strategy is for illustration purpose only. Do not use this as there is massive repainting.
As usual, I was experimenting with adding different entry/exit filters to my main strategy. Thought of adding higher frame filter, picked the code for getting higher time frame supertrend from someone else's script and copied it without thinking much about it.
This script is a proof of concept and one possible solution for how to deal with upper timeframe repainting issues. It works for Strategies only .
Strategies that utilize data from upper timeframes can still be subject to repainting issues when forward testing. Users can copy the code and use a similar solution in your own scripts.
For full code commentary,...
it's a repainting script cheating on tester, on backtesting %100 correct but on forward testing it will only work % 15 correct and %85 wrong. I did another script showing real forward testing results of this script.
