I have (for me) intriguing idea after taking a long look ayt how the SetStopLoss was having my automated strategy trades finish: it looks like there could be another 3 or more ticks of profit available beyond what price was selected as the 'stop loss limit'.
I tried just adding another 3 ticks to the calculation I was using, with a small amount of success (ie same# of trades are taken, small increase in net points) but if I try to make the process into a ExitLongLimit the results are not fruitful (ie dont ask)
Any suggestions on how this can be coded effectively? My guess is that this may apply to several people that use SetStopLoss.
update: swapped out
and looks more normal but still looking for ideas
more update: I started another thread on MIT / LIT ... I feel that the question posed in this thread will be in the same context as the other discussion
