I'm tempted to try it as a contrarian strategy... short my own trade idea .

Have any of you had surprises in backtesting that gave you different ideas?

Yes, you should take the opposite of the signals.

It's maybe a joke, you can have similar EC with a system using very tiny stoploss, and a too large profit target.
That doesn't mean that doing the opposite, small profit target and a huge stoploss, is a good idea .

. Actually its the ADXVMA strat I used last year (and stopped using when it stopped working). Now it seems better at identifying turns then catching the middle of a trend move...

I swapped the position logic (go short when long signal generated, etc) but alas, it still lost money though less regularly.

Forward testing against a basket of contracts in Sim for the heck of it while I work on some other things.
