Euro Surge for NinjaTrader
As of 12/22/2011, we are releasing the Euro Surge trading system for the NinjaTrader Platform. This is a strategy that was originally designed in the Tradestation platform and has now been converted to Ninjascript for the NInjaTrader Platform.
The Euro Surge trading system trades the Euro Currency from 2 am – 1 pm EST, beginning when the European trading session starts. It is designed to take advantage of trends that occur at night (night for US traders but day session for European or Asian traders). Many times, the trends in markets like the Euro Currency may occur at night with the trend, range, and volatility ending once the US Stock market begins trading. Euro Surge is a strategy that will take advantage of trends in different time zones. This strategy uses a $300 stop loss.
Euro Surge is a trading system for those trading a night and can be automated. When you order you will be sent to a link to automatically download the NinjaScript and start today. The input list and performance for the last three years from 12/22/2011 are shown below. We used Kinetick data to test this strategy. The information below can be used to compare your performance when setting up the strategy in your platform to make sure the results match.
On March 26, 2013, we adding the Euro Surge Profit Target Version to our site, this version has additional exits that can be used and tested on the user end. Our recommendation is to use the inputs shown below with or without a $200 profit target per contract. Since 2009, the $200 profit target version has a “straighter” equity curve. Without the profit target the average trade profit is higher.
