Quantacula Studio is becoming Wealth-Lab 7! We've taken the Quantacula code base and have used it as the basis for developing the newest version of the popular Wealth-Lab backtesting, charting, and trading platform.

I'm not sure if this is a Quandl problem, or a personal issue, but I can't access a Quandl database for VIX futures.

I'm running Q217, just installed the Quandl extension package. It works to call up a symbol if I use the default WIKI database (in the tester), but problems with other things like actually using it:

  1. I can't seem to access CHRIS/CBOE_VX1 (or 2, 3, 4... any of the continuous VIX futures) as a data source. These report as NULL values in the tester, and if I configure a Quandl indicator to try and use one of them, it shows up as NaN with no graphed data shown.

  2. I can't get the example in the extension docs to work either, the one with SF1 and @_EQUITY_MRQ. Also gives me NaN.

  3. The Fear and Greed indicator works. So I am getting through to Quandl with my API, but unsure of the reason for these problems. Configuration? WIKI is set as my default.

This strategy is modified for stocks from one I found reported on an options trading forum (behind paywall) as follows:

//// START

Here are the trading rules:

  • Sell a put credit spread at 35-45 DTE, 20-30 delta when the Upper Bollinger Band (3, 3) is below the Lower Bollinger Band (20, 1).
  • Close at 50% profit.

Bollinger 3,3 means Bollinger 3 period at 3 Standard Deviations. Bollinger 20,1 means Bollinger 20 period at 1 STD DEV.

I call it the Bollinger Bend because that upper bollinger bends down kind of like an elastic when it goes under the lower bollinger and more often than not it also flings back up again just like an elastic.

//// END

Hi, I've been trading for about 4 years and would like to get some information on how easy/hard it would be to create an effective trading bot that would simulate my normal trading system. The rules are pretty simple its a strategy that most people are aware of which is the MACD cross over when above or below the 0 and a 200 ema to filter out "false" signals. I have zero programing knowledge basically and I can't seem to add more than one indicator for back testing.

Hi, Glitch! I was considering adding Automatic Automaton Arbitrage to SuperBands for c2, so can you tell me what command I may use to watch NASDAQ-100 at the bid ask? Thanks!

I have some big news regarding the future of Quantacula. As some of you may know, prior to developing Quantacula, I created Wealth-Lab, another backtesting and trading platform, and the first web site that offered portfolio level backtesting. Wealth-Lab was acquired by Fidelity Investments in 2004, and I continued to work with Fidelity improving Wealth-Lab until a few years ago. Upon my departure from Fidelity, I developed Quantacula, which incorporated many modern features that Wealth-Lab lacked.

4 consecutive down days, and the RSI(14) turns up after having been in oversold territory within the past 3 bars.
