PSAR crossover alone won’t give good results even in trending market of 2014 and 2015, I have backtested them all the way from 2007 spot nifty in Amibroker for hourly charts (I myselves use 1 hr charts for trading).
You can use PSAR as an exit strategy but not for getting entries. Also please ensure that you backtest strategy for atleast 3-4 years. I was only backtesting in PI for just 3 months data, I got super results in 3 months backtesting. But when I tested in Amibroker for longer time, it gave horrible results in many years.
AlgoGeek why you say its fair result. The net profit in this strategy is 455-392= 63 points.
Number of trades =350
Per round trade you need ~4 points to get breakeven (considering brokerage, STT, stamp duty etc).
Points lost in transaction = 350*4 = -1400
Actual points = 63-1400 = -1337
Loss of more than 1000 points!
