Comparing daily close prices as a strategy.
This strategy is equal to the very popular "ANN Strategy" coded by sirolf2009(1) which calculates the percentage difference of the daily close price, but this bar-bone version works completely without his Artificial Neural Network (ANN) part.
Main difference besides stripping out the ANN is that my version uses...
Here is an another attempt to demonstrate repainting and how to avoid them. It happened few times to me that I develop a strategy which is giving immense returns - only to realize after few forward testing that it is repainting. Sometimes, it is well disguised even during forward testing.
In this simple strategy, conditions are as below:
Buy : When a 3M bar...
This indicator shows how to avoid repainting when using the security() function to retrieve information from higher timeframes.
What do we mean by repainting?
Repainting is used to describe three different things, in what we’ve seen in TV members comments on indicators:
1. An indicator showing results that change during the realtime bar, whether the script is...

There is a code that can control sensitivity. try to change 'ATR Multiplier' menu
There is a code for prevent 'repaint'. If you want it check 'Forces Non-Repainting' menu

Open Close Cross Strategy R5 revised by JustUncleL JustUncleL
Even when your code does not use security() calls, repainting dynamics still come into play in the realtime bar. Script coders and users must understand them and, if they choose to avoid repainting, need to know how to do so. This script demonstrates three methods to avoid repainting when NOT using the security() function.
Note that repainting dynamics when ...
This strategy is for illustration purpose only. Do not use this as there is massive repainting.
As usual, I was experimenting with adding different entry/exit filters to my main strategy. Thought of adding higher frame filter, picked the code for getting higher time frame supertrend from someone else's script and copied it without thinking much about it.
This script is a proof of concept and one possible solution for how to deal with upper timeframe repainting issues. It works for Strategies only .
Strategies that utilize data from upper timeframes can still be subject to repainting issues when forward testing. Users can copy the code and use a similar solution in your own scripts.
For full code commentary,...
it's a repainting script cheating on tester, on backtesting %100 correct but on forward testing it will only work % 15 correct and %85 wrong. I did another script showing real forward testing results of this script.
The indicator is for experimental purpose only, it must not be used as a decisional tool but only as a visual one (like Zig-Zag, Fractal etc). The information this indicator display is uncertain and subject to drastic changes over time. If you have further question feel free to pm me.
Most of the filters you will find are causal,...
This is a collection of all the moving averages available. Some are built-in, a couple were tricky to source out.
Higher timeframes can be specified so you aren't limited to your chart setting.
Repainting has been disabled by default.
There is also an option to use Heikin Ashi candles as the input source rather than standard bars.
Hope that someone finds this...
Pine's implementation of the security() function behaves differently in realtime vs. historical bars. Specifically, for historical bars, calling security() for a time frame (TF) larger/slower than the current chart's TF will return information about the last completed bar of the higher TF. However, for realtime bars (i.e. if you allow the chart to...
