This script trades basic and patterns.
It's an extremely simple strategy with minimal filters, and according to my personal manual backtesting and automated trading results, performs best on the on certain forex pairs.
It is intended to be traded on the forex markets but theoretically should work on all markets (especially if you optimize the settings).
The script also comes with complete AutoView automation for Oanda.
Make sure you've connected AutoView to TradingView and Oanda, then simply set an alert using the "alert() function calls only" condition and it will automatically execute trades based on whatever settings you've selected (only recommended for experienced traders - use at your own risk!)
If you're not sure how to set up AutoView, search "The Art of Trading AutoView Guide" on YouTube to find my detailed video guide.

Best of luck with your trading!

I ignore the $ equity gain/loss in the TradingView Strategy Tester because I don't use a fixed position size like the tester does, but rather a dynamic one that changes on each trade based on my account balance. When I published this script I guess I had the position size set to 1 contract because I was more interested in the win rate which is why the $ gain is so low
I personally use this script to scan for markets with a high win rate and then I manually backtest to see what those numbers turn out to be. In my testing on EURJPY with a 1.4R and 2% risk per trade I had a 200% gain for example, which isn't much over 16 years but it compounds when combined with other markets and other strategies.
This is intended to be an extremely low-maintenance background strategy that is supplemented by other more active strategies to compound your long term returns, not traded on its own as that would be a waste of time. But if you find 6+ markets to trade this strategy on it can net 10%+ per year on average with the right parameters which is a decent profit for a strategy that only requires a minute or two per day to execute
Your comment helped me to come up a simple metric to asses the gains and risk of a strategy that I call GR metric => Gain x Risk metric
GR = (1 - invested_amount/initial_equity) x (1 + returns / invested_amount)
Here it will penalize for very risk appetite and also for low returns whose min value is zero. For a balanced approach let's say 50% invested capital with good 10% returns the value is 0.55
