understanding regresssions .. notice the blue arrows, 3 points of regression .. a line in geometry takes 2 points .. once two points are established either you play the 3rd or wait for the 4th ..

the low on the 3rd regression proximity was on 11/13/19 .. 3075.75 , deploying the 'Line In Sand' algo or the breakout algo .. not the Inv Line In Sand. You input the dates 11/13/19 and the pivot 3075.75

if deployed on
11/13/19 .. the drawdown would be ~ 675 .. cum profit ~600
11/14/19 ~ -300 - 775
11/15/10 ~1,762.5

Can be used for swing trading .. the problem with traditional orders, it would only trigger once, and you would have to keep reinstituting the order again and again till breakout, tedious and screen intensive for trader.

Key is to find discrete structure, where the human eye see's a pattern, other regression players will see that break and look to get in intraday .. the market maker algo's also realize this, and will try to throw off as many positions as possible. If intraday trading, just exit on the close, don't hold anything overnight and just reinstitute on session open. The coded algo does this. It lets you input, the previous 8p-midnight session plus new day session till close. Main thing like anything, its not 100% efficiency. Zig Zag trades will create costs till final breakout.

If your playing high zig zag zone, based on market profile. Than instituting the Inv algo, would work against the market makers.

Consolidative pattern (zig zag) is always greater before the extent of the resulting gap, Meaning market makers will consolidate it extensively before the gap which is nominal.

Added code to close out any positions if small account is being used, and closeout is mandatory. Notice the difference in sets of code, one if 'crosses above' crosses below' and other is > or < than .. variation. Ninjatrader Brokerage has mandatory margin check at 15:45 EST USA time. To build a safe amount of time for bar generation to trigger closeout, a large interval is used so account is not in margin violation.

Startdate and stopdate is usually Asian Session (11/19/19)
Startdateb and stopdateb is from midnight to midday next day (11/20/19)
Startdatec and stopdatec is from midday to closing day (11/20/19)

Starttime and stoptime is Asian session (18:00-24:00)
Starttimeb and stoptimeb is from midnight to midday (1-12:00)
Starttimec and stoptimec is from midday to closeoutstart
Closeoutstart to Closeoutstop (interval to exit positions)

Ideally you want to start the time intervals where you see a trendline break anticipated or has occurred. Or if trading news event is planned. The variation is code 'Cross Above/Below' or '> or <' the algo wont trigger if price has moved away using 'Cross Above/Below' method, but will trigger if using the > or < method. Reason being the Algo checks each bar generated to trigger code, both sets or variations have use in different situations.

You need some basic Ninjatrader code working knowledge to put it to use and create variations.

Price during different time intervals has different pivot outliers, if you try to backtest using the same pivot for historical data, you will get a great amount of zig zag costs. Up trending markets, the pivots are usually close to the prior session lows, and down trending markets, the pivots are usually above.

above is the 'above below' code. It's basically a buy and hold a swing short or long .. it exits before margin check, and reinstitutes on open of session.
