If you want to test the profitability of your system in Month on Month Absolute terms then this article is for you.

One of the reasons why we came up with Absolute Returns – Profitable table amibroker afl code last time. And this time at our trader’s workplace, yet again my partner asked: “is it possible to get a Month on Month Profit/Loss table in Absolute Percentage on Initial Capital rather than in compounded percentage terms?”

Amibroker stores the Profit Table Computation in 3.Profit Table under /formulas/reports folder. with a simple tweak one can code for Absolute Percentage on Initial Capital rather than in compounded percentage terms.

  3. Hi Rajandran,
    I use daily candle
    Can you help me write a simple afl with the following conditions:

    I want candle low is less than ma(close,50) within last 3 days (including current day)
    I want candle open is greater than ma(close,50) within last 3 days (including current day)
    I want candle close is greater than ma(close,50) within last 3 days (including current day)

    what i reach so far is:

    but i not sure about whether the code actually means what i want to achieve. Basically i have a problem with within last 3 days. Low has to be less than MA(close,50) for any of the of the day of the last 3 days and so on for others.

    Filter=(LowRef(MA(Close,50),-3)) AND (Close>Ref(MA(Close,50),-3));
