Strategy Backtester
Backtesting: Shadow Trader
Author: Glitch
I'm considering adding this to my trading MetaStrategy, but only trading one symbol at a time while it is long. It performs well on stocks like SIRI that have been trading in a range. I remember reading a book that called these "Rolling Stocks." The Strategy enters multiple positions and enters when the 8 period RSI crosses under an oversold level. However, it ignores the first such time this happens. It takes trades on SUBSEQUENT crossings before the RSI goes overbought. In effect it maintains a "Shadow Position" = hence the name.
