Re: Trading Multiple Strategies on Same Symbol

I use sub accounts at Amp futures to run different strategies on same symbol.
Keeping them completely separated works good for me.

When testing on sim, this is not important, you can just use separate charts.

What is Piv Ext signal logic ?

hi

What is the logic behind the piv ext signal in MC ?

I see the piv reversal logic but I would like to understand the piv ext logic better.

The piv reversal seems to be based on a swing high or low.

Is the piv ext also based on swing highs and lows ?

scaling of indicators ?

hi
when I add floor pivots or OHLC , the scaling distorts the chart too much for me.
I have tried the different scaling settings , but cannot get the scaling to stop all together.
I do not want any scaling of the indicators. Is this possible ?

thanks

Re: Strategy Report: Run-up < Profit? [SOLVED]

i thought that it means the run up is beyond the profit point.
So if $100 profit was not taken , then the run up would be $190.

So it looks like the profit target is good for that strategy.

I may be wrong, but thats what I thought it meant.

strategy conversion into MC NET

Does anyone know a good person that could convert a strategy from a different trading platform to MC ?

I have a basic one I created that works well on a renko chart, and I think I can refine the renko chart in MC to improve performance.

Is that an expensive job ?

yes, they do form the basis for the strategy. I just wanted to set up a scenario where only the

you can use either DT or new SE with amp/ cqg if you have regular version, it works also when the trial expires , buy the multicharts or just use se or dt. the only thing dt cannot do is custom scripts through power language editor.
