Has anyone tried and backtested a reliable Parabolic Sar Filter? If so, could you please show me the filter so I can try it? Thank you. Btw, I need the filter to show the beginning of an uptrend. Thank you.

Over the years, alf44 and Kevin_in_GA have posted their choice Parabolic Sar parameters.
Good luck with your search.

Thank you Cheese in getting back to me. Just wondering if Alf44 has left SF? I see Kevin has left us now and we all hate seeing great filter engineers leave us. I am sure others hopefully will step up and take his place as others who have left before Kevin opening the door for Kevin to show us his work. Hopefully we all will have a great New Year 2018.

hi marine2,

you may want to ask sF whether alf44 has left.

from my own notes, at one time Kevin favored Parabolic SAR(0.08,0.01). This is before Ai SS NN
For Kevin's more current parameters, please check his Ai SS NN threads.

Good luck trading

This link has good Parabolic SAR info from both Kevin_in_GA(0.08,0.01) and alf44( 0.055, 0.34)

Good luck

You know that feeling that Par. looks so ez and you wish it was, but it's not?
You can improve your chances by filtering for Par. moves that have failed 2 or 3 times in a row, thus eliminating some of the fails. You can whip a filter like that up, can't you PT.
