Directional Trend Index Strategy

by Brian Brown, 2766 days ago
Share |






The Directional Trend Index, DTI, is a trading indicator that uses the high/low momentum to calculate the increasing momentum of the highs in an up market and the decreasing momentum of the lows in a down market.

The DTI slope tells you about the direction of the market or security price. The higher the indicator slope the stronger the security's rise.

This trading system is a long/short strategy that uses the DTI indicator and trades only S&P 500 stocks. A maximum of six positions are allowed at the same time.

It enters long (buy) when the DTI crosses above -10
It enters short (short) when the DTI crosses below zero

The strategy has two stops:

10% Stop Loss
10% Profit Stop

Backtesting Result: (2000-2012 Period)
Annual return of 19%
Sharpe ratio: 0.82

A buy and short liquidity rule should be added if you want to run this trading system on other stocks (Example: Russell 2000 stocks):
Example: 5-bar average daily volume in dollars is higher than 50,000.

To backtest or use this strategy in a portfolio, you must download and install the DTI indicator. This indicator can be found here: Directional Trend Index.

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.
