In these tutorials, posted to the MarketDelta Blog, we look at a single trading concept based on an "Initial Balance" trading strategy. Each tutorial progressively takes you through the process of building a trading system, from start to finish.
Part 1 - The concept is discussed, as well as the goals for the trading system testing.
Part 2 - We build a custom indicator to identify the Market Profile levels on a regular multi-pane bar chart.
Part 3 - Creation of a custom trading signal that automatically identifies when to go short or long based on this strategy.
Part 4 - Simple but effective RTL shortcut to streamline the signal in Part 3 for greater clarity.
Part 5 - Introduction to Backtesting - We backtest the Initial Balance strategy from Parts 1 to 4 above using a simple end-of-day exit signal.
Part 6 - We backtest with new profit target rules for the system.
