At the request of our users in the Forums that they hope to have a multi-symbol dual moving average strategy as a design reference, a multi-symbol dual moving average strategy will be implemented in today's sharing. Remarks will be written in the strategy code to facilitate your understanding and learning of the strategy, which will enable more new students of programmatic and quantitative trading get started with the strategy quickly.

Strategy Thinking

The logic of the dual moving average strategy is very simple, that is, two moving averages. A moving average with a small period (fast line) and a moving average with a large period (slow line). When the two lines have a golden cross (the fast line up crosses the slow line from bottom ), buy long, and when the two lines have a dead cross (the fast line down crosses the slow line from top ), sell short. For moving average, We use EMA.

It is just that the strategy needs to be designed for multiple symbols, so the parameters of different symbols may be different (different symbols use different moving average parameters), so it is necessary to design parameters in a "parameter array".

Parameters are designed in form of string, with each parameter split by comma. These strings are parsed when the strategy starts running, which will be matched with the execution logic for each symbol (trading pair). Strategy polling detects the market quotes, of all symbols, the trigger of trading conditions, and chart print. After all symbols are polled once, the data is aggregated and table information is displayed on the status bar.

The strategy is super simply designed and very suitable for beginners; it is only of 200+ lines in total.
