EL Strategy Help

Discussion in 'Strategy Development' started by PENSACOLA, Oct 12, 2010.

  1. I have a strategy coded based on RSI with a condition that the bid - ask spread be within .03 for long entries only. This runs on thinly traded nasdaq stocks that typically have big spreads.

    Example; current bid - ask is 5.00 X 5.20. My RSI rule is met. I'm wanting to buy the ask at 5.03 if / when the bid - ask condition is met.

    How do I prevent this from buying the ask at 5.20 is someone jumps the bid to 5.17? What other rule, indicator or condition can I apply?

    Thoughts, comments, suggestions much appreciated.
     
  2. What is wrong with something like, when your RSI condition is met you place a limit order ...

    entryOrder = EnterLongLimit(numberOfShares, Bid[0] + 0.03);

    [it would be something like the above in NinjaTrader, i.e. C# ... don't know about EasyLanguage, but hopefully the idea would be the same.]
