@monpere, how goes your testing? I am finding the bars move so quickly that trying to get an order in manually or automated any where near the second bar after a reversal is near impossible. Are you finding this? And what have you found to filter the the chop successfully? Please share what you feel you can. Thanks.

I tested with market orders, and generally there is a couple of ticks slippage. They seem to perfrom pretty well outside of chop, but chop areas become huge killers, they can take the profits away very quickly. The testing I did was just applying my current strategy to these new bars without any alteration. I have not thought around the chop issue yet. I would have to do some more testing and analyzing for that. Given that these are manufactured bars that do not show real price action, I cannot backtest them without changing code to account for that, so my tests have just been in live market sim. Obviously, that way it takes way more time to play with these new bars.
