Beat The Market strategy - can someone survive in markets with this strategy? Is this tough question? Yes. Definitely. Who knows the answer? Original creator, of course. I hope he knows it ...

I'm going to check that strategy. It's the only way to answer my question.

The first things first. I need to build BTM environment. And it requires the indicators.

I've got two sources:

I'm not sure about this. There are a lot of "stories" there on the air. So, for me the deadline is December 1, 2019.

However, if the strategy will prove its viability, I'll create all required indicators to be independent from original versions.

JoeeF Nov 8, 2019 6:16am | Post# 4

Till now, I've read only the first ten pages of the original thread.
So, my the first aim is to mimic the basic BTM approach and implement it into my EA.

The first step is to implement entries when the arrow will appear. For now, without exceptions.
Trend check will be implemented in the second step ...

Please be patient. Trend checking is coming soon ...

Subscribed. Thanks for the effort. EA that takes all rules into consideration would be huge!
I have been testing this strat with a small 10 euro account and made it to 28 now in about 2 weeks. So it has huge potential.

Hi trieuVhh

When you mean mq4 version, do you mean that the guys in the potential scammer btm thread indicators that correlate well with the BTM indis or you have the BTM indis as mq4?

Thanks

For live environment it should be OK. What about the strategy tester? It'll be much tougher. Is D-indicator repainting?

October 29, 2019 - It's logging downtrend till 19:45. However the chart is showing change of the trend a little bit sooner. Yes. This will be an issue with back-testing.

And so on. How reliable would be a backtesting? We'll receive a best answer when compare results from live trading with results from back tester afterwards.

I've implemented BTM trading approach into my own framework for creating expert advisors (JFFramework).

And I'm trying to check if BTM is viable trading method.

Great this will save us a lot of waisted time if it's not. I hope it can be successfully backtested with a strategy tester.

JoeeF Nov 8, 2019 6:02pm | Post# 40

I hope it can be successfully backtested with a strategy tester.
That's a question. There is a issue with repainting (D-indicator). Please read above posts.

Anyway, you can try it in back tester. I'll release a basic version in a few hours.
regards
