Viper has released their official guidance on how to best set parameters to trade ScalperAT. In fairness to Viper, I will post back test results using NT 6.5 and the suggested recommendations as sent to Viper AT subscribers. I will simply present the data and withhold my opinion or recommendation.

Pictured below are the performance data, equity curve, and parameters for ViperScalperFuturesTF (NYBOT, Mini Russel 2000) trading one contract with a 4 Range chart. Trading started at 6:40 AM PST and ended 12:40 PM PST. With a profit target of 14 ticks and a stop loss of 20 ticks, Viper suggested a daily "net win" of two trades and a maximum daily loss of $600. If either of those situations occur, the system would stop trading for the session.

For the period starting 11/21/09 and ending 2/19/10, the system generated 208 trades resulting in a loss of $1140 before commmission and susbcriber fees. Proforma commission expense of 4.00 per trade was $832, and subscriber fees were $897, for a total expense of $1729.

Result: this system LOST $2869 after commission and subscriber fees.
