Hull Moving Average Strategy - Multi Time Frame Trading System
Using the Hull moving average, a market rule, two time frames and an N-Bar stop, this strategy generates an annual return of 30.91%, a high Sharpe ratio of 2.13 and a very low drawdown (-16.21%). The strategy beta is equal to 0.29 and the correlation between daily returns and S&P 500 index returns is 0.43%.
The trading system is based on the crossover of the low price and the Hull moving average in a daily time frame and the crossover of the close price and the Hull MA in a weekly time frame. Another trading rule that has greatly improved the system performance is a market rule that prevents the strategy from entering new long positions/trades when the 20-Bar return of the S&P 500 Index is in a negative territory. The unique exit rule consists of a simple 3-Bar Stop. (Exit a position after 3 days).

This hull moving average trading system was not optimized, which means that you can probably improve it by adding new buy/sell rules, modifying the market rule, optimizing function parameters, updating trading system settings...
The trading system uses a custom technical analysis indicator that can be downloaded here: Hull Moving Average. It also references an external symbol (^GSPC), which is the ticker symbol of the S&P 500 Index. Make sure you download end-of-day data for that index.
The hull moving average is a smoothing indicator that tries to eliminate the lag (which is the main weakness of moving averages) by using weighted moving averages and the square root of the period. The result is a special moving average that is smoother and more responsive to price movements. The result of this trading system shows you how profitable this function can be if applied correctly.
Trading financial instruments, including foreign exchange on margin, carries a high level of risk and is not suitable for all investors. The high degree of leverage can work against you as well as for you. Before deciding to invest in financial instruments or foreign exchange you should carefully consider your investment objectives, level of experience, and risk appetite. The possibility exists that you could sustain a loss of some or all of your initial investment and therefore you should not invest money that you cannot afford to lose. You should be aware of all the risks associated with trading and seek advice from an independent financial advisor if you have any doubts.
