The Weekend Trend Trader Strategy is the specific code for the system defined in the Weekend Trend Trader eBook. It was initially designed for and tested on the US market, but its popularity means it’s now traded on markets globally.

The Weekend Trend Trader is a trading strategy designed for people who want a simple to follow trading plan that trades just once a week. An ideal investment strategy for people who work full time but are actively planning for their retirement.

The strategy allows users to generate buy and sell signals, plot charts, run backtests and adjust a myriad of parameter settings without needing to understand coding. Other filters include price, volume, turnover, market regime and two position sizing modes. The code is completely viewable and editable by the user.
