Alright, I do it for you. As I said earlier, probably the intraday swing (30-120 minutes holding time) is the best for the Combine, assuming 3-5 traders a day.

Here is the thing about scalping. It is rather easy specially in slow markets to pick up 1 tick profit trading the ES. Now if you are trading 3 cars and doing the 30K/20days Combine you only need 8 ticks per day, thus 3 trades with 1-1 tick wins will do it. The only problem is meeting the parameters, but as I showed earlier, you can manipulate both the Duration and the Average loser by taking quick, small losses, so it could be done...

Taking 1 tick wins doesn't really show any kind of strategy though, and if I were the backer I wouldn't fund anyone with such results...

I see your point about intraday swing and scalping. Intraday swing makes the more sense by using quick and small losses method.
