## SummaryIn the previous article, we explained the premise of realizing the trading strategy from the aspects of the introduction of the M language , the basic grammar, the model execution method, and the model classification. In this article, we will continue the previous part, from the commonly used strategy modules and technologies. Indicators, step by step to help you achieve a viable intraday quantitative trading strategy.## Strategy Modulehttps://preview.redd.it/a4l7ofpuwxs41.png?width=1517&format=png&auto=webp&s=3f97ea5a7316edd434a47067d9b76c894577d01d ## Stage IncreaseStage increase is calculating the percentage of current K line's closing price compare with previous N periods of closing price's difference. For example: Computing the latest 10 K-lines stage increases, can be written:1234 CLOSE_0:=CLOSE; //get the current K-line's closing price, and save the results to variable CLOSE_0. CLOSE_10:=REF(CLOSE,10); //get the pervious 10 K-lines' closing price, and save the results to variable CLOSE_10 (CLOSE_0-CLOSE_10)/CLOSE_10*100;//calculating the percentage of current K line's closing price compare with previous N periods of closing price's difference. ## New high priceThe new high price is calculated by whether the current K line is greater than N cycles' highest price. For example: calculating whether the current K line is greater than the latest 10 K-lines' highest price, can be written:12 HHV_10:=HHV(HIGH,10); //Get the highest price of latest 10 K-lines, which includes the current K-line. HIGH>REF(HHV_10,1); //Judge whether the current K-line's highest price is greater than pervious K-lines' HHV_10 value. ## Price raise with massive trading volume increaseFor example: If the current K line's closing price is 1.5 times of the closing price of the previous 10 K-lines, which means in 10 days, the price has risen 50%; and the trading volume also increased more than 5 times of the pervious 10 K-lines. can be written:1234567 CLOSE_10:=REF(CLOSE,10); //get the 10th K-line closing price IS_CLOSE:=CLOSE/CLOSE_10>1.5; //Judging whether the current K Line closing price is 1.5 times greater than the value of CLOSE_10 VOL_MA_10:=MA(VOL,10); //get the latest 10 K-lines' average trading volume IS_VOL:=VOL>VOL_MA_10*5; //Judging whether the current K-line's trading volume is 5 times greater than the value of VOL_MA_10 IS_CLOSE AND IS_VOL; //Judging whether the condition of IS_CLOSE and IS_VOL are both true. ## Price narrow-shock marketNarrow-shock market means that the price is maintained within a certain range in the recent period. For example: If the highest price in 10 cycles minus the lowest price in 10 cycles, the result divided by the current K-line's closing price is less than 0.05. can be written:1234 HHV_10:=HHV(CLOSE,10); //Get the highest price in 10 cycles(including current K-line) LLV_10:=LLV(CLOSE,10); //Get the lowest price in 10 cycles(including current K-line) (HHV_10-LLV_10)/CLOSE<0.05; //Judging whether the difference between HHV_10 and LLV_10 divided by current k-line's closing price is less than 0.05. ## Moving average indicates bull marketMoving Average indicates long and short direction, K line supported by or resisted by 5，10，20，30，60 moving average line, Moving average indicates bull market or bear market. can be written:123456 MA_5:=MA(CLOSE,5); //get the moving average of 5 cycle closing price. MA_10:=MA(CLOSE,10);//get the moving average of 10 cycle closing price. MA_20:=MA(CLOSE,20);//get the moving average of 20 cycle closing price. MA_30:=MA(CLOSE,30);//get the moving average of 30 cycle closing price. MA_5>MA_10 AND MA_10>MA_20 AND MA_20>MA_30; //determine wether the MA_5 is greater than MA_10, and MA_10 is greater than MA_20, and MA_20 is greater than MA_30. ## Previous high price and its locationsTo obtain the location of the previous high price and its location, you can use FMZ Quant API directly. can be written:123 HHV_20:=HHV(HIGH,20); //get the highest price of 20 cycle(including current K line) HHVBARS_20:=HHVBARS(HIGH,20); //get the number of cycles from the highest price in 20 cycles to current K line HHV_60_40:REF(HHV_20,40); //get the highest price between 60 cycles and 40 cycles. ## Price gap jumpingThe price gap is the case where the highest and lowest prices of the two K lines are not connected. It consists of two K lines, and the price gap is the reference price of the support and pressure points in the future price movement. When a price gap occurs, it can be assumed that an acceleration along the trend with original direction has begun. can be written:12345678 HHV_1:=REF(H,1); //get the pervious K line's highest price LLV_1:=REF(L,1); //get the pervious K line's lowest price HH:=L>HHV_1; //judging wether the current K line's lowest price is greater than pervious K line's highest price (jump up) LL:=H ## Common technical indicatorsMoving average https://preview.redd.it/np9qgn3ywxs41.png?width=811&format=png&auto=webp&s=39a401b5c9498a13d953678c0c452b3b8f6cbe2c From a statistical point of view, the moving average is the arithmetic average of the daily price, which is a trending price trajectory. The moving average system is a common technical tool used by most analysts. From a technical point of view, it is a factor that affects the psychological price of technical analysts. The decision-making factor of thinking trading is a good reference tool for technical analysts. The FMZ Quant tool supports many different types of moving averages, as shown below: 1234567 MA_DEMO:MA(CLOSE,5); // get the moving average of 5 cycle MA_DEMO:EMA(CLOSE,15); // get the smooth moving average of 15 cycle MA_DEMO:EMA2(CLOSE,10);// get the linear weighted moving average of 10 cycle MA_DEMO:EMAWH(CLOSE,50); // get the exponentially weighted moving average of 50 cycle MA_DEMO:DMA(CLOSE,100); // get the dynamic moving average of 100 cycle MA_DEMO:SMA(CLOSE,10,3); // get the fixed weight of 3 moving average of closing price in 10 cycle MA_DEMO:ADMA(CLOSE,9,2,30); // get the fast-line 2 and slow-line 30 Kaufman moving average of closing price in 9 cycle. ## Bollinger Bandshttps://preview.redd.it/mm0lkv00xxs41.png?width=1543&format=png&auto=webp&s=a87bdb4feecf97cbeef423b935860bfea85ffe6d Bollinger bands is also based on the statistical principle. The middle rail is calculated according to the N-day moving average, and the upper and lower rails are calculated according to the standard deviation. When the BOLL channel starts changing from wide to narrow, which means the price will gradually returns to the mean. When the BOLL channel is changing from narrow to wide, it means that the market will start to change. If the price is up cross the upper rail, it means that the buying power is enhanced. If the price down cross the lower rail, it indicates that the selling power is enhanced. Among all the technical indicators, Bollinger Bands calculation method is one of the most complicated, which introduces the concept of standard deviation in statistics, involving the middle trajectory ( MB ), the upper trajectory ( UP ) and the lower trajectory ( DN ). luckily, you don't have to know the calculation details, you can use it directly on FMZ Quant platform as follows: 1234 MID:MA(CLOSE,100); //calculating moving average of 100 cycle, call it Bollinger Bands middle trajectory TMP2:=STD(CLOSE,100); //calculating standard deviation of closing price of 100 cycle. TOP:MID+2*TMP2; //calculating middle trajectory plus 2 times of standard deviation, call it upper trajectory BOTTOM:MID-2*TMP2; //calculating middle trajectory plus 2 times of standard deviation, call it lower trajectory ## MACD Indicatorhttps://preview.redd.it/9p3k7y42xxs41.png?width=630&format=png&auto=webp&s=b1b8078325fc142c1563a1cf1cc0f222a13e0bde The MACD indicator is a double smoothing operation using fast (short-term) and slow (long-term) moving averages and their aggregation and separation. The MACD developed according to the principle of moving averages removes the defect that the moving average frequently emits false signals, and also retains the effect of the other good aspect. Therefore, the MACD indicator has the trend and stability of the moving average. It was used to study the timing of buying and selling stocks and predicts stock price change. You can use it as follows: DIFF:EMA(CLOSE,10)-EMA(CLOSE,50); //First calculating the difference between short-term moving average and long-term moving average. DEA:EMA(DIFF,10); //Then calculating average of the difference.The above is the commonly used strategy module in the development of quantitative trading strategies. In addition, there are far more than that. Through the above module examples, you can also implement several trading modules that you use most frequently in subjective trading. The methods are the same. Next, we began to write a viable intraday trading strategy. ## Strategy WritingIn the Forex spot market, there is a wellknown strategy called HANS123. Its logic are basically judging wether the price breaks through the highest or lowest price of the number of K lines after the market opening## Strategy logic- Ready to enter the market after 30 minutes of opening;
- Upper rail = 30 minutes high after opening ;
- Lower rail = 30 minutes low after opening ;
- When the price breaks above the upper limit, buy and open the position;
- When the price falls below the lower rail, the seller opens the position.
- Intraday trading strategy, closing before closing;
## Strategy code12345678910111213// Data Calculation Q:=BARSLAST(DATA<>REF(DATA,1))+1; //Calculating the number of period from the first K line of the current trading day to current k line, and assign the results to N HH:=VALUEWHEN(TIME=0930,HHV(H,Q)); //when time is 9:30, get the highest price of N cycles, and assign the results to HH LL:=VALUEWHEN(TIME=0930,LLV(L,Q)); //When time is 9:30, get the lowest price of N cycles, and assign the results to LL //Placing Orders TIME>0930 AND TIME<1445 AND C>HH,BK; //If the time is greater than 9:30 and lesser than 14:45, and the closing price is greater than HH, opening long position. TIME>0930 AND TIME<1445 AND C ## To sum upAbove we have learned the concept of the strategy module. Through several commonly used strategy module cases, we had a general idea of the FMZ Quant programming tools, it can be said that learning to write strategy modules and improve programming logic thinking is a key step in advanced quantitative trading. Finally, we used the FMZ Quant tool to implement the trading strategy according a classical Forex trading strategy.## Next section noticeMaybe there are still some confusion for some people, mainly because of the coding part. Don't worry, we have already thought of that for you. On the FMZ Quant platform, there is another even easier programming tool for beginners. It is the visual programming, let's learn it soon! |

Feel free to talk about technical analysis here (not argue against it), but before you ask any question make sure you see the following information:

Technical analysis (TA) uses historical price movements, real time data, indicators based on math and/or statistics, and charts; all of which help measure the trajectory of a security. TA can also be used to interpret the actions of other market participants and predict their actions:

**Measure:** Is the security's price trending, has it dipped or is it a falling knife? **Interpret:** Does the current price mean investors think it's undervalued or overvalued; when did they buy/sell more and why? **Predict:** If price reaches a certain point, will there be a rally or get rejected?

The main benefit to TA is that everything shows up in the price (commonly known as priced in): All news, investor sentiment, and changes to fundamentals are reflected in a security's price.

TA is best used for short term trading, but can also be used for long term.

**Indicator**- a calculation based on price and/or volume, it can be displayed as a line/number on a chart or watch list; some indicators use statistics like standard deviation such as the Bollinger Bands indicator**trade signals**- when an indicator tells you that a buy or sell (short) entry is available (also called buy signal or sell signal)**lagging indicator**- based on past prices, for example the Moving Average indicator**leading indicator**- typically oscillators which fluctuate from 0 to 100 and back, and these typically measure the rate of change; they also generate overbought, oversold, and divergence, all of which help create trade signals**oversold**- a trade signal for when to buy, for example RSI below 30, however it's best to wait when the RSI line points upwards past 30 before buying**overbought**- the opposite of oversold; for RSI it's above 70**divergence**- when an indicator and stock price move inversely which foreshadows a coming change in the price**whipsaw**- when trade signals & price suddenly reverse either stopping you out or making you exit your trade**resistance**- an area on a chart where price can't seem to go higher. The main reason is that no one is willing to buy above that price or there's more sellers than buyers.**support**- an area on a chart where price can't seem to go lower. The main reason is no one is willing to sell below that price or there's more buyers than sellers.**breakout/breakdown**- when price breaks support or resistance**alerts**- a notification for when price hits your desired target, some software allows you to place the alert direction on a chart**level ii**- This shows all bid & ask orders from market makers, usually your broker charges a fee for this, and is only really usual for day trading**trend line**- can be a moving average, previous day's high, an indicator, you can even draw a line connecting all the highs or lows for example**Market participants**- also includes market makers, institutions, and retail & institutional investors. Different markets have different participants such as futures (hedgers & speculators) and forex (banks & speculators).

**Moving average (MA)**- lagging indicator that averages previous prices, for example MA 20 will average the previous 20 days; MAs do not predict price movements, they smooth out price changes. Common averages are 10, 20, 50, 100, and 200. Typically you use 2 to 3 per chart.**RSI**- relative strength index, takes the average gain of the stock price divided by the average loss over a number of periods, default 14; starts to reverse when it points down from 70 (sell signal) and reverses agian when it points up from 30 (buy signal)**VWAP**- intraday indicator, takes the average price and weighs it by volume, basically you want to be short below VWAP and go long above VWAP; near the VWAP line (or price) there can be lots of whipsaw**MACD**- combines momentum & trend indicators; gives off many trade signals including ovebought/sold and divergence, see link here note that the histogram in the center shows how wide the MACD & Signal line are from each other**ATR**- Average true range gives a number that tells you how wide price movements are, great for helping set stops. ATR on a daily chart of 5 means average price movement of 5 points, typically you would have a stop loss 2x ATR so in this case it would be 10 point wide stop. If a stop loss of 2x ATR is too high for you, then trade a different stock.**Bollinger Bands (BB)**- takes the standard deviation of price times 2 (default); in statistics, 95% of all values are within 2 standard deviations. BB is typically used for resistance and support, more info here.**Ichimoku clouds**- Combines even more indicators, good for beginners, see here

**Trend Following**- Basically you're buying shares as a stock is going up or shorting as it's going down. Investopedia's intro to trend trading.**Fading**- shorting as price falls from resistance, or buying as price rises from support**Channels**- very much like fading except you find 2 parallel trend lines that price has been bouncing between, see here**Patterns**- Double tops, head & shoulders, and cup & handle are the most watched for, see here for more, don't get too caught up in patterns.**Breakouts/Breakdowns**- while patterns can be attractive, breakouts/breakdowns happen all the time; here's one way to take advantage of them**Pivots**- these used to be for pit traders in the exchange, just 5 numbers they needed to navigate the day's price movements, but are still used online and stock prices tend to breakout or reverse off these pivot lines

**Indicator**- a calculation based on price and/or volume, it can be displayed as a line/number on a chart or watch list; some indicators use statistics like standard deviation such as the Bollinger Bands indicator**trade signals**- when an indicator tells you that a buy or sell (short) entry is available (also called buy signal or sell signal)**lagging indicator**- based on past prices, for example the Moving Average indicator**leading indicator**- typically oscillators which fluctuate from 0 to 100 and back, and these typically measure the rate of change; they also generate overbought, oversold, and divergence, all of which help create trade signals**oversold**- a trade signal for when to buy, for example RSI below 30, however it's best to wait when the RSI line points upwards past 30 before buying**overbought**- the opposite of oversold; for RSI it's above 70**divergence**- when an indicator and stock price move inversely which foreshadows a coming change in the price**whipsaw**- when trade signals & price suddenly reverse either stopping you out or making you exit your trade**resistance**- an area on a chart where price can't seem to go higher. The main reason is that no one is willing to buy above that price or there's more sellers than buyers.**support**- an area on a chart where price can't seem to go lower. The main reason is no one is willing to sell below that price or there's more buyers than sellers.**breakout/breakdown**- when price breaks support or resistance**alerts**- a notification for when price hits your desired target, some software allows you to place the alert direction on a chart**level ii**- This shows all bid & ask orders from market makers, usually your broker charges a fee for this, and is only really usual for day trading**trend line**- can be a moving average, previous day's high, an indicator, you can even draw a line connecting all the highs or lows for example**Market participants**- also includes market makers, institutions, and retail & institutional investors. Different markets have different participants such as futures (hedgers & speculators) and forex (banks & speculators).

Typically you use 2 to 3 per chart.**RSI**- relative strength index, takes the average gain of the stock price divided by the average loss over a number of periods, default 14; starts to reverse when it points down from 70 (sell signal) and reverses agian when it points up from 30 (buy signal)**VWAP**- intraday indicator, takes the average price and weighs it by volume, basically you want to be short below VWAP and go long above VWAP; near the VWAP line (or price) there can be lots of whipsaw**MACD**- combines momentum & trend indicators; gives off many trade signals including ovebought/sold and divergence, see link here note that the histogram in the center shows how wide the MACD & Signal line are from each other**ATR**- Average true range gives a number that tells you how wide price movements are, great for helping set stops. ATR on a daily chart of 5 means average price movement of 5 points, typically you would have a stop loss 2x ATR so in this case it would be 10 point wide stop. If a stop loss of 2x ATR is too high for you, then trade a different stock.**Bollinger Bands (BB)**- takes the standard deviation of price times 2 (default); in statistics, 95% of all values are within 2 standard deviations. BB is typically used for resistance and support, more info here.**Ichimoku clouds**- Combines even more indicators, good for beginners, see here

Technical analysis (TA) uses historical price movements, real time data, indicators based on math and/or statistics, and charts; all of which help measure the trajectory of a security. TA can also be used to interpret the actions of other market participants and predict their actions:

The main benefit to TA is that everything shows up in the price (commonly known as priced in): All news, investor sentiment, and changes to fundamentals are reflected in a security's price.

TA is best used for short term trading, but can also be used for long term.
