Description

The Vortex Strategy is based on the Vortex Indicator study. Signals generated in the study are used to trigger automatic trades. This automated trading strategy was created to demonstrate the mechanics of an automatic trade and is not intended for actual use. A more comprehensive strategy that may include multiple studies, margins and stops could be developed. This strategy definition is further expressed in the code given in the calculation below.
