This course walks you step-by-step through building an end-of-day trading system in Excel that creates buy/sell signals for 100+ securities at a time. Excel’s VBA language is used in conjunction with spreadsheets, links and formulas to deliver a powerful and flexible trading tool.
The model includes 5 proven technical indicators (ADX, moving average crossovers, stochastics, Bollinger bands and DMI). You are guided in a detailed fashion through creating worksheets, files, ranges, indicator formulas, control buttons, DDE/Active-X links and code modules.
The model incorporates both trend-trading and swing-trading features. The swing-trading feature can be turned on or off, depending on your trading style.
The system can be used to generate trading signals for 100+ stocks, currencies or ETFs.
If you already have our Trend Trading Model in Excel, this course will show you how to automated your model to handle 100+ securities at a time.
After building the model, you simply import the end of day price data, run the model with the click of a button, make your trading decisions, and enter your trade orders with your broker.
The course shows you how to import prices automatically into your Excel model from free downloaded .csv files or from DownloaderXL.
A pre-built back testing model is included that allows you to test the system versus buy-and-hold over 5 years of price history. The back test model displays detailed performance and risk statistics to help you select a watch list with a greater probability of generating large profits.
1) The Excel model you will build in this course will automatically import prices using free .csv price files you download from the Internet. It can also be connected to an external paid data provider or broker with a DDE / Active-X link for Excel. The course assumes you can access the data necessary to run the model.
2) The Excel model in this course does not automate send trade orders directly to/from your broker’s system. It creates buy-sell orders in Excel, which you review and submit to your broker. The model can be integrated directly with a broker’s order execution system. Brokers focused on institutional traders such as Interactive Brokers, E*TRADE and Merrill Edge offer Excel API integration to send orders directly to their trading system from Excel and receive fill information back. Implementing an Excel API connection is unique for each broker and is not covered in this course.
