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 ViperScalperFuturesZS (GLOBEX Soybean Futures) trading one contract with a 2 Range chart. Trading started at 7:30 AM PST and ended 11:00 AM PST. With a profit target of 10 ticks and a stop loss of 12 ticks, Viper suggested a daily "net win" of two trades and a maximum daily loss of $450. 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 244 trades resulting in a loss of $2062.50 before commmission and susbcriber fees. Proforma commission expense of 4.00 per trade was $976, and subscriber fees were $897, for a total expense of $1873.

Result: this system LOST $3935.50 after commission and subscriber fees.
