Comment on Code your Technical Analysis strategy

Sasi,

Basically you can make an expression if you have access to 2000 or 3000 candles.

What I mean to say is presently for all stocks we have daily data from commencement. So assume you are analyzing daily historical chart of Reliance for 10 years. You will have 2500 daily candles( 250 days/yr and 10 years), so yes you run the strategy.

But if you are looking at hourly candles, 2500 candles would mean 2500 hours which is around 400 days. We presently don’t give you 400 hourly candles data on algoZ, so this won’t work.

We will be providing only online support for algoZ, all your queries will be answered here. Check this http://www.zerodha.com/z-connect/blog/view/algoz-a-simple-example gives you how to write/backtest/go live on a very simple strategy. The only thing that you will have to change is the code.

Best of luck.
