How long have you been testing your system live (on a real account with real money)
SIM fills are very different from real market fills.

What is the total number of trades the system took ?

A realistic period is like 18 Months, but a professional will say, ok the market only went up
so they will most likely want to see your system in up market and in down market

Good luck !

I have been trading the system live since about last September. It has been generating an average of about seven trades per month, with some months having several more than that and other months having many fewer. So, I am definitely far short of the 18 months you mentioned there.

I did go back with about two years of data to see how it would have done and it had similar results, but we all know that doesn't count for much because trader psychology changes when live money is on the line.
