ahh yes nicolas thank you soo much for your wise input i was reading the same exact thing in alot of the books i was reading aswell... i didnt do the parameter adjustment like you mentioned but i actually just tried another security goog, cmg, msft to see how far off the results would be it was about 40-55%
funny story i was testing the ultimate oscilator last night and it has been tested to be a very highly accurate instrument but when i tested it on different equities and indexed results varied from 70-100% keep in mind that it only tells u to get in average about 5-6 times a year on a daily chart.. anyways point being is your right i will not only mess with parameters but test on diff equities futures and indices to see validity
but the equity curve is a critical piece of information i neglected i need to figure out how to acess that with trade station im sure they have it will google it soon
but right now this is just the compiling of a loose fitting system once i have something solid i think i will try to break it with very rigorous testing before i use it
