Smart Money Index (SMI) Backtest

If you would to use this indicator on the ES, you should have intraday data 60min in your account.

Smart money index (SMI) or smart money flow index is a technical analysis indicator demonstrating investors sentiment.
The index was invented and popularized by money manager Don Hays. The indicator is based on intra-day price patterns.
The main idea is that the majority of traders (emotional, news-driven) overreact at the beginning of the trading day
because of the overnight news and economic data. There is also a lot of buying on market orders and short covering at the opening.
Smart, experienced investors start trading closer to the end of the day having the opportunity to evaluate market performance.
Therefore, the basic strategy is to bet against the morning price trend and bet with the evening price trend. The SMI may be calculated
for many markets and market indices ( S&P 500 , DJIA, etc.)

The SMI sends no clear signal whether the market is bullish or bearish . There are also no fixed absolute or relative readings signaling
about the trend. Traders need to look at the SMI dynamics relative to that of the market. If, for example, SMI rises sharply when the
market falls, this fact would mean that smart money is buying, and the market is to revert to an uptrend soon. The opposite situation
is also true. A rapidly falling SMI during a bullish market means that smart money is selling and that market is to revert to a downtrend
soon. The SMI is, therefore, a trend-based indicator.
Some analysts use the smart money index to claim that precious metals such as gold will continually maintain value in the future.
