Hello all,

Does anyone know how to build an indicator that is able to store the data from myfxbooks community outlook. I have a trading system that uses community outlook as a reserve indicator. In order to back test my trading plan and optimize it, I need to be able to use this historical data. If you are interested in creating this indicator please PM me. Thanks

Hi,

I created it years ago for MT4... check out blog.
It stores data from the time you start it.
What platform do you use? Backtesting while refering to external data seems complicated.
As you don't have past data.. the best is to backtest realtime in demo with EA
As you can see, I have already performed realtime testing over 2 years.

My conclusion the way I used it as a strategy it works well only when market is really strong.

As manual, I have performed it live for 3 months and I provided a live course.

1. Trades will be entered and exit at specific time everyday. These times must be adjustable
2. adjustable SL is needed
3. adjustable trailing stop is needed
4. trades will be put on during the days that the sentiment ratio is above an adjustable level (example 60%)
5. The length that the sentiment ratio must be above certain ratio to put on trade must be adjustable
6. daily trade filters (trade only Tuesday to Thursday) but should be adjustable
7. News filter (don't trade on Non farm payroll or interest rate accouchements)

Sentiment indicator is FX blue sentiment Indicator

For final instructions please ask

Can anyone build this EA ???? MT4 and exe files

I already have it.

You should go to MQL4 forum and hire a developper.

This is how it works.

What do you already have exactly. Also I get messaging on here for programming offers so I thought I would make it public

Do you have a Python script for scraping community outlook data?

You can surely look up some videos and ask expert traders about how to go about it. All the best.
