[Strategy] TRIMA + Williams %W = >400% profits

Hi,

Tested out this indicator combo on ETH/BTC and it worked better than I thought. Got over 400% profits in 6 months backtest (from 1st Jan 2016 to 15th Jul 2016). Let me get straight into it..

Safeties (optional):
  • Close above 20% profits
  • Close below 10% losses

Indicators:
  • TRIMA
    • 5/35
    • 1 hour timeframe
    • Notes: This indicator is here to pick up the trends.
  • Williams %W,
    • 30/-30/-70
    • 15 minutes timeframe
    • Notes: This indicator is here to pick up the sideways dips and tops.

Insurances:
  • None.

I tried this strategy on FCT/BTC and DASH/BTC too, but the settings were really bad for FCT since backtesting it showed me over 700% losses for the same time period. But what comes to DASH, it worked pretty well, but not as well as for ETH/BTC.


Cheers,

Interesting I wonder how LTC would fare on this strategy

I tried this on LTC, but it's just way too aggressive and untamed.. Maybe if you'll find good settings for it, it might work no problem.

Are the indicators meant to run as master indicators so they trade independently?

No. I used them as a pair. %W is there to snap into the dips and tops, while TRIMA will work as a confirming indicator. You could backtest them how they work as master indicators.

OK. Thanks. I will test them as a pair then.

Well, I used the default values for it, just because you actually CAN'T set negative values... :|

Default values are giving my bad results... I spent the night playing with everything.
How exactly did you managed to get this +400%.... my best was +100% for a month

I smell something fishy here... Can you provide more information or screenshots?

If you got +100% for a month, that's even better than I did. And you should really read what is written here, before any annoying assumptions:
Tested out this indicator combo on ETH/BTC and it worked better than I thought. Got over 400% profits in 6 months backtest (from 1st Jan 2016 to 15th Jul 2016).


Also, if you are backtesting this on Poloniex, you need to calculate the fees yourself, since they are F'd up.
