macd - signal crossover wanted
#1
Hi all,

Just started with Gekko and I'm looking to create a very simple strategy:
- if macd crosses signal while going up: buy
- if macd crosses signal while going down: sell

I tried to "hack" together a custom strategy, but I'm having difficulties getting the values for EMAshort(12), EMAlong(26) and signal(9) as such so I can use them in a the above mentioned crossovers.

I can't seem to find a strategy that does this, it's probably out there and I don't know what to look for or it's not since it is a foolish strategy... I don't know which..

To be honest, I'm quite new to java programming and strategies... but I would still like to see what happens with such a strategy and gain some experience programming it.

Can anyone point me in the right direction please?

Thanks!

Anyone? Or is this just a too bad of an idea for a strategy... telling me that would also help me ;-)

Thanks!

Is what you want different from the build in MACD strategy?

- You can find the implementation here: https://gekko.wizb.it/docs/strategies/in....html#MACD
- You can find the description here: https://gekko.wizb.it/docs/strategies/in....html#MACD

Thanks,

To be honest, I'm not quite sure.... I have a feeling het "default" MACD strategy is based on a trend, whereas I would like to perform an action based on the MACD crossing the signal line.

.. or is this what the MACD strategy does?

Did you find out how to do it? I need to do same with MA's

No, not really, I've abandoned this idea and am looking into other existing strategies...
