Scraping Ideas/Signals EA?
Quite interested to see how much value people would see on an EA that scalps several places throughout the internet to collect and 'judge' readily available signals/ideas.
For example, collecting all of the ideas from https://uk.tradingview.com/markets/c...s/?sort=recent, https://live-forex-signals.com/en/ and some twitter accounts.
Extras could be that all the signals on each region of tradingview are collected (US/UK/FR/DE...etc. all collate signals separately), and compared.. Assume we then collected 3x BUY signals for EURUSD within a 30min timestamp, that would be classed as a good indication to trade. Equally, we could backtest all signals and be able to give users a rating, and automatically trade high rated posters signals.
Additionally, we could then add in the twitter scalping, and other websites. For twitter it could be posters with known formats (https://twitter.com/fxsignals_club?lang=en) or we could just search for hashtags (#GBPUSD) and try and use AI to dictate what kind of action to take (either by trying to parse, or by looking at positive/negative sentiments alongside keywords like BUY or SELL. Therefore, if we have 2 signals on tradingview for buying GBPUSD, and a positive sentiment trending for BUY and GBPUSD, we'd open a trade.
Really keen to understand if people would think this could be a reasonable EA method?
As an example, I've coded up a scraper for TradingView. Here is some data I've grabbed earlier (containing a total of 4000 signals from UK/US/FR/DE...region WWW is US btw):
Note the highlighted area... 4 signals within 2 minutes from 4 different users... 3 SHORT, 1 LONG. Below is the graph:
If we would have gone with the majority, we could have done nicely (depending on TP/SL of course).
Really interested to hear if people have used/heard-of similar methods before, and if people think it may work?
