This is not an investment recommendation. The purpose of this study is only to share knowledge with the community on tradingview.
What is the purpose of the strategy?
The strategy is to buy the 123-Stormer pattern at the bottom of an uptrend and sell the 123-Stormer pattern at the top of a downtrend, aiming for a short stop for a long profit target.
To which timeframe of a chart is it applicable to?
Recommended for weekly and , as the signals are more reliable, being that strategy a good option for swing and position trading.
What about risk management and success rate?
The profit target is established by the author as being twice the risk assumed. Also according to the author, the strategy is mathematically positive, reaching around 65% of success rate in tradings.
How are the trends identified in this strategy?
Two averages are plotted to indicate the trend, a fast average with an 8-week close and a slow average with an 80-week close.
Uptrend happens whenever the fast is above the slow and prices are above the fast . In this case, we should start looking for a LONG entry based on the signal of the 123-Stromer pattern to buying.
On the other hand, downtrend happens when the fast is below the slow and prices are below the fast . In this case, we should start looking for a SHORT entry based on the signal of the 123-Stromer pattern to selling.
How to identify the 123-Stormer pattern for a LONG entry?
This pattern consists of three candles. The first candle has a higher low than the second candle's low, and the third candle has a higher low than the second candle's low. In this pattern, we will buy as soon as a trade occurs above the third candle's high, placing a stop as soon as a trade occurs below the second candle's low, with profit target twice the risk assumed. In another words, the amplitude of the prices of the three candles from the third candle’s high upwards. (you can use to determine your stops and profit targets).
Importantly, the low of the three candles must be above the fast average and in an uptrend.
How to identify the 123-Stormer pattern for a SHORT entry?
This pattern consists of three candles. The first candle has a lower high than the second candle's high, and the third candle has a lower high than the second candle's high.

In other words, the amplitude of prices of the three candles from the third candle’s low down (you can use to determine your stops and profit targets).
Importantly, the high of the three candles must be below the fast average and in a downtrend.

Feel free to provide me with any improvement suggestions for the backtest script. Bear in mind, feel free to use the ideas in my script in your studies.
#1: Use of syminfo.mintick variable for stop-loss
#2: Optimization of order cancellation control using the array.remove function
#3: Adjusting the display of buy and sell signals on the chart using the location.abovebar and location.belowbar properties
#1: barLimitForEntryInput replaced thresholdForEntryInput. The new parameter is more semantic than the old one, and therefore better conveys the purpose of its use.
#2: barLimitForCloseInput is intended to indicate the maximum number of bars in trade for closing an open position
#3: profitOverRiskInput sets the profit target based on the risk taken on the trade.
