Trading crossovers

Previous page Return to chapter overview Next page

Similar in concept to a breakout, many traders like to trade crossovers. This can be a crossover of price from a certain threshold or even an indicator crossing over another indicator.

 

Key concepts in this example

Determining and storing the first 15 bar high and low values for the current session
Submitting long or short entry orders depending on which threshold is crossed
Using a trail stop to exit positions

 

Tip: This reference sample sets CalculateOnBarClose to false. The reason we are doing this is so we can submit orders as soon as a crossover occurs instead of waiting for the bar to close before submitting the order.
