Build a trading strategy

On Alluvie we give you access to a platform where the only thing you need is an idea. You need to be able to write it on paper in a form of a formula. Let's have a theoretical example; imagine that you have a technical indicator and you want to derive a trading strategy from it. Let say:

if technical_indicator < 30 then buy 
else if technical_indicator > 70 then sell

Once you have these rules in mind you need to think about how to transform them into signals, meaning when do I buy or sell? The easiest way here is to say: if the technical indicator breaches level 30 and goes below 30 I buy and I will sell when the technical indicator breaches level 70 and goes beyond.

if technical_indicator d-1 > 30 and technical_indicator d < 30 then buy
if technical_indicator d-1 < 70 and technical_indicator d > 70 then sell

Now you are ready to create your first trading strategy on Alluvie.

4️⃣ Once you've clicked on tecthe hnical indicator you will have access to a modal window where you will be able to choose the relative strength index technical indicator:

The option is when a technical indicator is composed of multiple outputs such as the Bollinger Bands. In this case, you will have to choose the technical indicator and the output you want to use. Finally, the shift is here to symbolize the shift in days. If you need d-1 then you will put a shift of -1.

5️⃣ When you click on Add Variable the variable is automatically added to the BUY formula with the name composed of the variable + day shift.

In the end, you should have a BUY formula as follows:

6️⃣ if you made a mistake in the order of your variable in the formula every element can be dragged and dropped wherever you want. If you want to modify, delete, or duplicate a variable of the formula just click on the element.

Repeat the same procedure for the SELL formula.
