PineScript v4 - Forex Pin-Bar Trading Strategy

צפיות ‎796‎
PineScript v4, forex trading robot based on the commonly used bullish / bearish pin-bar piercing the moving averages strategy.

I coded this robot to stress-test the PineScript v4 language to see how advanced it is, and whether I could port a forex trading strategy from MT4 to TradingView.

In my opinion, PineScript v4 is still not a professional coding language; for example you cannot use IF-statements to modify the contents of global variables; this makes complex robot behaviour difficult to implement. In addition, it is unclear if the programmer can use nested IF-ELSE, or nested FOR within IF.

The sequence of program execution is also unclear, and although complex order entry and exit appears to function properly, I am not completely comfortable with it.

To reduce the possibility of curve-fitting, this robot was backtested on 12 popular forex currencies, as shown above. The robot was profitable on 8 out of 12 currencies, breakeven on 1, and made a loss on 3.

The default robot settings could be over-fitting for the EUR, as we can see out-sized performance for the EUR pairs, with the exception of the EURGBP . We can see that GBPJPY made the largest loss, so these two pairs could be related.

Risk Warning:

This is a forex trading strategy that involves high risk of equity loss, and backtest performance will not equal future results. You agree to use this script at your own risk.
