Newly question for anyone to answer.
What are the correct stochastic settings to use that properly represent what the cross over/under look like.
Again - I am asking as a new by because I am having a hard time getting this to reflect in sites like stockcharts.com.
Tried 10,5,5 but no go and 5,10,5 looks close but.....
So if anyone would be so kind as to advise what the propped setting would be I would be most grateful.
Thank you

You can't plot this on Stockcharts, since it requires a Stochastic %D crossing above/below ANOTHER Stochastic %D - most sites use only the standard %K and %D crossovers.

Kevin - thank you
Do you use anything in Prodigio as far a indicators that show position of stochastics?
Just curious - I am using 14,1,5 and 5,1,5 and they work pretty well but was just wondering if
you use anything or just ignore it and use only the signal.
Thank you

Prodigio does not really lend itself to graphical charting as much as it does for automated trading. Why look at the charts when you can simply program it to trade on the signal? It will stick to the system - no second guessing or emotional interference.

You can do this in Prodigio, but I would direct you to their support team for this.

I guess the primary reason is that when running the filter in Prodigio for say 2011 I get nothing like the results you have posted from Stratasearch and was just wanting to visually see why since there is such a large discrepancy between results if it could be visually identified.
I agree with letting the signal fire and enter or exit but if back testing one system against another and the results are very different I would like to SEE why - that was all I was trying to understand but as you indicated it is not possible in Prodigio to see the Stoch as this filter is set up but was just wondering if you used anything in that platform.
Thanks again
Cheers

You can adjust the settings on Freestockcharts.com to show the %D crossover. I can never remember how to put up a chart here or I would.

@jackmack: That's because the backtests on Prodigio are not really all that good - and I don't think you can actually test back more than 1 year on their data. Also they do not seem to reinvest 100% of the account in each trade as SS does.

Between the two I trust SS for backtesting and Prodigio for forward testing.

Kevin
Agreed on Prodigio but I have not been able to test in SS yet.
Is there anyway I could get the settings code for SS?
I sent an email previously as you instructed but I have not seen it yet.
Thank you for all your help.

Entry

crossbelow(stochd(5, 1, 5,simple),stochd(5, 1, 10,simple))

Exit

crossabove(stochd(5, 1, 5,simple),stochd(5, 1, 10,simple)) or

traildown(3,unleveraged)


Use variable trade setting and 1 open position. Have 99% of equity used as trade size.
