Trailing Stop Loss

Hello,

Thank you to anyone who can help.

I am very young, and a good trader, but certainly not a good coder.

I am trying to make an algorithm that goes long if current price > EMA, and then a trailing stop loss(pretty simple), or sell if EMA> current price.

I get a whole variety of error codes and have spent hours trying to fix them. I was wondering if someone can help me out.

 

If someone can fix this, I would love to give a tip via PayPal or something. Thanks in advance.

Hi Christian,

Welcome to QuantConnect! We're glad to see traders utilizing our platform.

I understand it might be a bit challenging to learn a new API. So, I've debugged your code and implemented the trading logic you described, and it is free. :-) Please see the attached backtest. You may want to start from there and make improvements to the strategy.

We've always been thinking of ways to help users get familiar with our platform. Boot camp courses are very useful in learning some basics of algorithmic trading on QuantConnect. Please check them out.

Happy coding!
