C320up Strategy Tester Start Time
This is a little snippet you can paste into your Strategy to set the testing start date and time.
It is not a Strategy per se, though is an example with the timestamp script included.
Instructions are fairly straight forward, and are listed in the script.
If for some reason you also wanted an end date, that too is possible....
Code put blue bars during times you input. I put it to show times I am asleep and not alert to trade. I also put code into strategy to control when trades can open or close. FXCM and IDC exchanges have different time zones, as well as AMEX, etc. You will have to change it for each zone.
update: added weekly and monthly pivots, the offset is a average approximation so there may be inconsistency on the date forecasted to be end of week/month.
(using diferent sessions or limited time intervals is not possible).
The script combines 3 single Bollinger bands into one script for easy plotting and range modification. It can be used for analyzing a market with multiple time frames and ranges using Fibonacci series as the range.
EXPERIMENTAL: this script can be used as a trend follower if bgcolor is active, it can be used to catch extremes and target levels for a pull back to the mean, can be used as support and resistance with the time period open price and extreme. other uses, improvements let me know :p.
