Moving Average Envelopes Backtest

Moving Average Envelopes are percentage-based envelopes set above and
below a moving average. The moving average, which forms the base for
this indicator, can be a simple or exponential moving average . Each
envelope is then set the same percentage above or below the moving average.
This creates parallel bands that follow price action. With a moving average
as the base, Moving Average Envelopes can be used as a trend following indicator.
However, this indicator is not limited to just trend following. The envelopes
can also be used to identify overbought and oversold levels when the trend is
relatively flat.

Would it be possible to modify the backtest to go long on any test of the lowband at the time of the test versus upon the close of the candle?

@JMVala_Trades, Results will be incorrect, because backtest use open\close price for entry\exit. Your logic need to be tested on the realtime data.

How do we select the stocks for trading MA envelope? High Beta or High Volatility stocks, which will go well? Please suggest.

Thx for this work - I analysed this one - can you explain me these lines of code?
pos = iff(close > xHighBand, 1,
iff(close <xLowBand, -1, nz(pos, 0)))
possig = iff(reverse and pos == 1, -1,
iff(reverse and pos == -1, 1, pos))

Are you calculating the bearish or bullish?
