    Trading the Alligator+Fractals Strategy

    Author: Maks Artemov


    Today, we will speak about one of the most popular Forex strategies called Alligator+Fractals. It was designed by a famous market psychologist and successful trader Bill Williams in the 20th century, however, it remains topical nowadays.

    Alligator+Fractals belongs to trend strategies, which means it does not work in the times of a flat.

    This strategy is multicurrency, however, observations show that it works better on instruments with a small spread, such as most basic currency pairs and metals. With high-volatile instruments, it may give false signals.

    You may use any timeframe; however, on smaller ones, signals will be multiple but their quality may worsen. On H4 and longer timeframes, signals will demonstrate better quality but appear more rarely. A trade will be working off for several days if not weeks. The size of Stop Losses on large timeframes may exceed the size allowed by your risk management. However, the profit may be huge compared to the Stop Loss.

    The Fractals and Alligator indicators: the base of the strategy

    This strategy is based on two indicators designed by Bill Williams and included in most trading terminals by default:
    1. Fractals
    2. Alligator


    Fractals indicator settings

    The Fractals indicator looks like an arrow above a Japanese candlestick or a bar and points at the price extreme. For a Fractal to appear, the following conditions are necessary:
    • The highs of the two first candlesticks are increasing.
    • The high of the third candlestick is higher than those of the preceding two candlesticks.
    • The highs of the fourth and fifth candlesticks are decreasing gradually.
    • If all the requirements are met, a fractal forms on the extreme.


    In the settings, you may only change the color and the width of the line. Other parameters are set.

    TSTester Expert Advisor for Testing Manual Strategies

    Author: Dmitriy Gurkovskiy


    Today's post is devoted to all of you. We will speak about an expert advisor TSTester that will teach anyone not only to trade systematically but also to create and check on practice new trading ideas and approaches, thus saving your time.

    What is TSTester and what is it meant for?

    I recall myself as a beginner (as many of you do, I suppose). I gleaned information about the analysis and trading method, checked new systems, tactics, and strategies dozens and hundreds of times, hundreds and thousands were earned and lost - all this for gaining experience and developing my own view of the market. The only thing I am sorry for is my lost time.

    At the time, time was spent easily, but now we realize that it is not the best practice. Then an idea emerges: what if there were such a thing as a tester of manual strategies... Many laughed at such dreams but some must have taken note of them: nowadays, there are various trading simulators for beginners and experts, meant for practicing trading technics and skills. In other words, simulators for traders have the same purpose as punchbags for boxers.

    Remember how many demo or even real accounts you had lost before your system became perfect? Anyone who is serious about trading must check the profitability of their strategy.

    All of us have been checking and will go on checking our own and other people's ideas real-time on demo or real accounts. However, each approach normally requires lots of time. To call a trading strategy or system efficient, you need to test it for six to twelve months.

    Nonetheless, TSTester helps you to test any trading strategy, saving a lot of your time, to perfect your trading style, and to work out your trader's discipline.

    TSTester looks like an ordinary expert advisor for MetaTrader 4 where you can test indicators and strategies, learn how to trade various instruments and timeframes supported by the terminal.

    How to install and launch TSTester in MetaTrader 4?
    1. The process of downloading and installing the expert advisor is standard. The file with the expert advisor is put to the "Data catalog" via "File". Then copy the expert advisor to the "Experts" folder and the indicator - to "Indicators". Restart the terminal.
    2. If needed, renew the quotations of the currency pairs that you will carry out your testing on. For this, via "Service", open the quotations archive and upload the minute data under the chosen currency pair.
    3. As strategy tester in MetaTrared4, choose TSTester. Choose the currency pair, the timeframe, the period for testing, and put a tick in the "Visualization" box. Click "Start" and start testing in a new window.

    The interface of the expert advisor looks quite laconic and modest. However, before you start testing, you need to understand what function has each window and button.

    How To Find Stocks For Long-Term Investments?

    Author: Eugene Savitsky


    Nowadays, many investors are perplexed by the choice of stocks for long-term investments. It is important to take your time as no one knows whether we have already hit the market bottom or are in the middle of the decline.

    You can always buy the stocks of well-known companies such as Apple (NASDAQ: AAPL), Amazon (NASDAQ: AMZN) or Facebook (NASDAQ: FB). Most likely, you will make a profit. However, there are other ways of finding companies for investments, and in this article, we will discuss one such way. This method is very simple, and you will easily repeat it.

    1. Find and define the sector of the economy

    First, make up your mind about the sector of the economy in which you will be looking for a company for investing.

    Go to the website Finvix.com and proceed to Groups. In this section, we will find the economic sectors that suffer from the crisis less than others.

    Healthcare sector

    As long as the coronavirus started spreading in December 2019, we will need information for the last three months: this is the period during which stocks demonstrated the most dramatic decline.


    On the diagram, we see that the healthcare sector has suffered the least of all. However, this is simply because the crisis affected the healthcare system, and the money was allocated to the development of the vaccine. This is the reason for which the sector has been affected less than others, as the companies got a mighty inflow of money.

    What is remarkable is that during the crisis, pharmaceutical companies started carrying out IPOs, considering now the best time for it.

    Efficient Strategies Based on Stochastic Oscillator

    Author: Maks Artemov


    Almost all active traders are acquainted with the Stochastic Oscillator. It is included in almost all trading terminals and features a wide range of settings.

    There exist a large number of strategies and systems based on this oscillator. Naturally, some will say that the indicator alone will suffice for trading. However, the Stochastic Oscillator, like many other indicators of this type, tends to give false signals that need filtering.

    Practice shows that it is very hard to filter false signals "by eye"; using other indicators for this purpose is much easier. In this article, we will discuss several trading strategies using the Stochastic along with other indicators and single out their advantages and drawbacks.

    Strategies using the Stochastic and MACD

    As the first example, let us discuss the strategy using the Stochastic Oscillator and MACD. This strategy suits not only experienced traders but also beginners as it does not require any special knowledge or skills.

    The MACD is reflected as a histogram and signal line in a separate window under the chart. This indicator belongs to the oscillator group and shows the direction of the trend. If the histogram and signal line both rise above (0), the trend is considered ascending; if they decline below zero, the trend is said to be descending.

    The settings are standard for the MT4 and MT5 terminals:
    • Fast EMA 12.
    • SLow EMA 26.
    • MACD SMA 9.
    • Apply to Close.


    https://blog.roboforex.com/wp-conten...s-1200x515.png

    The Stochastic Oscillator opens in a separate window under the chart and looks like two crossing lines moving between the levels. The indicator demonstrates the current oversold and overbought state of the asset.

    How to Trade with Average True Range (ATR) Indicator: Setting and Signals

    Author: Victor Gryazin


    In this review, we will discuss a useful technical indicator ATR. It helps to evaluate and use in trading such a price parameter as volatility.

    How does ATR indicator work?

    The Average True Range (ATR) indicator was created in 1978 by the creator of several other popular indicators J. Welles Wilder. The main task of ATR is to evaluate the current volatility of the financial instrument. In other words, the indicator shows the dynamics of the price change during a certain period.

    The principle of market analysis with ATR can be expressed as follows:
    • the higher the indicator values are, the higher the market volatility is;
    • the probability of a correction or reversal increases; the lower the indicator values are, the lower the market volatility is; this means the market is quiet, and a strong trend may begin after the price escaped the consolidation area.

    ATR belongs to the oscillator group. As long as it helps to evaluate volatility, it is often used as a part of more complicated indicators. Also, it is often included in various trading algorithms - expert advisors. ATR has proved to be a good trend filter and a provider of landmarks for Stop Losses.

    The indicator is reflected in a separate window under the price chart; it consists of just one line, showing only positive values (0 and above). ATR does not show trend direction: it will grow equally if volatility increases in an uptrend as well as in a downtrend. The higher the volatility on the market, the bigger the ATR values.

    https://blog.roboforex.com/wp-content/uploads/2020/04/atr-1042x630.png

    ATR indicator: calculation formula and settings

    ATR is included in most trading terminals. In MetaTrader 4 and MetaTrader 5, it is added to the chart via the Main Menu: Insert - Indicators - Oscillators - Average True Range.

    Ruler Strategy: Trading On Daily Charts

    Author: Andrey Goilov


    Trading on intraday charts remains popular among traders because it allows making a quick profit. Less eagerly, they trade larger timeframes, such as daily and weekly ones, where trades open rarely and a profit is long to wait.

    On the other hand, not everyone can spend long hours in front of the screen, watching the signals of the system. At times, we want to look at the trading terminal less often. A good decision here will be trading on daily charts with the Ruler strategy.

    Signals will form seldom; you will need to look at the market situation for several minutes once a day and open trades after the current day closes.

    The description and peculiarities of the Ruler

    The system supports all currency pairs without limitations. However, it is usable on the daily chart only. The system forms signals rarely but you may increase the number of trades by adding more currency pairs.

    https://blog.roboforex.com/wp-conten...1-pravitel.png

    Note that you may enter the market strictly after the daily candlestick is closed. If you try to enter earlier, the prices may be different at the moment of closing, hence, the signal itself may change. Taking your time to open the position will be the best choice as you are trading on a daily chart, and several points or even tens of points will not make much difference.

    The instruments necessary for using the system:

    1. A Simple Moving Average with period 10 is used for entering the market; to add it to the chart, go to “Indicators” - “Trend” - “Moving Average” in your trading terminal.

    https://blog.roboforex.com/wp-conten...ic-1-sma10.png

    2. A Simple Moving Average with period 200 is used to evaluate the potential for opening a position.
