Tick Pulse V12 E-mini

Tick Pulse V12 is an update from Tick Pulse V10. The benefit of this strategy is that it trades on one minute charts instead of 15 second charts. On this time frame we have a longer historical backtest for this strategy and we slow down the decision making of the algorithm. Fast markets with many reversals can present challenges while more selectivity is usually a better proposition for risk management.

The average trade profit and maximum drawdown are in line with our desired objective. This strategy does well when the trend is strong and the stock indexes are trading in good ranges. It will trade less frequently and also generate less profit when the market trades in more narrow ranges.

Tick Pulse V12 6/17/2019

We look at the latest results of Tick Pulse V12 mid year. The last equity peak was in January. Volatility has continued to collapse as we have seen this cycle before where volatility zooms from low to high back to low. We are looking for another spike in volatility before the end of the year.

It is ideal to begin trading this strategy if you like to anticipate volatility cycles. We discuss the average trade profit as well as the difference in intra-day peak to valley drawdown as well as closed trade to closed trade drawdown.

Tick Pulse V12 for NinjaTrader 8

Tick Pulse V12 also works in NinjaTrader 8. We show the setup for NinjaTrader 8 using the Kinetick data feed. We know that different data feeds "sample" the NYSE TICK differently and the values on one minute charts are different on different data feeds. In NinjaTrader, using the Kinetick data feed we use a Bull Value of +100 and a Bear Value of -150 since the Kinetick data feed has "less extreme" readings vs the Tradestation data feed.

Purchasing historical data for the NYSE TICK is not beneficial for strategies that use the NYSE TICK if the data feed doesn't match the historical data.
