MTF Stochastic

MTF Stochastic - free TradingView bot strategy and study.

Free crypto trading bot

To make our community more profitable we decided to start a series in which we will review open-source TradingView strategies. The aim of the review is to select a strategy (or a number of strategies) from TradingView and run a reality check on it, optimise them and convert into alerts, so you can set it up as a bot on Wunderbit Trading platform.

MTF Stochastic - free TradingView bot strategy and study.

What we provide

  • Open-strategy source

  • Strategy adjustment for particular exchange, pair and timeframe

  • Backtest

  • Revised study script that you can apply in Wunderbit Trading platform for bot trading.

Description

This week we found a nice strategy for a 30 min time frame working for long and short entries for BTC-perpetual futures on FTX. The original idea was taken from: 03.freeman.You will find the original strategy code here: MTF stochastic strategy.

IMPORTANT!

  • This strategy was adjusted to make faster entry on lower time frames.

  • We added separate inputs for short conditions

  • You must set up trailing stops so the strategy can be executed according to backtest

  • We added inputs for the period selection, so you could see how the strategy is performing on a monthly basis.
