Hello all, I am doing my first newbie attempts as far as creating (I'd even say goofying with) my own trading systems. I have noticed that the principles that work during trending markets wont during the chop, and viceversa. How could I express in conceptual terms (as opossed to computing terms, I know nothing about that) so a trading platform could apply one set of rules during a trending market and another set of rules during the chop? The only idea I have come up with is requiring an initial filter, like price moving above over an EMA for a set number of periods in a row in order to apply the trend principles, otherwise apply the chop rule set. Any other ideas guys? Cheers.
