Signals Pirate™ Market Screener
The main Input options are 'Reactivity' and 'Depth', which allow for a dynamic trend following strategy that works on all time frames and assets. Using these values the strategy will print the bundles main ‘Buy’ and ‘Sell’ signals to try and identify the trend early and accurately. Their main functions are to dynamically calculate volatilityand current trend direction – but we’ve gone more in-depth below!
Reactivity controls how quickly the Algo reacts to changes in trend. This part of the bundle takes into account the Average True Range(ATR) to gauge current market volatilityand direction of the trend. Lowering the reactivity value will generate quicker reaction times of the algorithm as it will lower the threshold of volatility required for a signal to be generated. Therefore, it’ll show trades more frequently.
Depth controls the position of the signals according to the trend swing. Calculated using a variation of the Average Direction Index (ADX) to measure the changes in prices over a given period, when running parallel to the Reactivity volatility filter the trend can be identified quickly and accurately on any given time frame or asset. Higher Depth will allow for less frequent and slower entries. In contrast, lower Depth will give more frequent and earlier entries.
The default settings are the best settings we’ve found so far but you can change them to build your own unique trading strategy. We’d recommend experimenting with these values to find the best results for the asset you are trading, and your own personal trading and investing style.
Direction for use:
1. Use on any asset class and time frame and add the tickers of any asset you want included in the screener.
2. Fine tune the Reactivity (volatility) and Depth (trend sensitivity).
3. Consider longing assets that appear in the ‘Bullish List’ after candle close, and consider shorting assets that appear in the ‘Bearish List’ after candle close.
4. Exit positions once an asset has switched from one list to the other.
As mentioned previously, this Market Sceener uses a trend base system that dynamically operates to function with superior accuracy regardless of what you’re trading. But with the level of customisation available, this can easily be fine tuned to accommodate scalping, reversal trading, or even long term investing.
