    Simple strategy on High/Low of prev candle

    Hello,

    Would like to build a strategy for testing. Description in the subject. Where should one start? Are there important shortcuts and things to know?

    Thanks in advance!

    Hello Lester,
    Thanks for your post.

    You can check the high or low of the previous candle with either High[1] or Low[1], respectively.

    I am not aware of any specific shortcuts for creating this strategy. Are you going to be creating this strategy in the Strategy Builder or manually coding it?

      Hi Josh,

      Thanks for replying. Strategy Builder. Is there a simple guide?

      Is this still up-to-date?

        Lester,

        That guide is fully up to date. You may also wish to check out the Strategy Builder 301 webinar:

          Hi Josh,

          Watched the webinar, read the guide. Cannot make a strategy to show on a chart, neither his nor mine. The name shows in the left upper corner but the bars of action are not highlighted. It is 'enabled'.

          For a strategy, I'd like a M15 at 18:30 to be compared to the price and make an entry based on that.

          Regards,

            Lester,

            Do you mean that you cannot run the strategy built in the webinar?

            Do you see any errors on the 'Logs' tab of your Control Center? If so, what do they report?

            Are you able to run this strategy in the Strategy Analyzer? If so, what results do you see?

            If you enable the 'SampleMACrossover' strategy on your chart do you see historical executions?

              Hi Josh,

              No errors in the Logs. Run in the Strategy Analyzer is okay. I do not see historical executions on a chart.
