This reminds me: Is it also possible to algo everything? My manual strategies are maybe incredibly hard to code because of strict rules.

Ya, the good news:
Any rule that can be written in a (relatively) simple and not-ambiguos list of sentences can be implemented in an algo.
Moreover, algos rules are nothing less than strict -by definition-.

The bad news:
Fear will not go away. Pain will not fade. Losses will hit your stomach. Gains will strike you mind. Your hand will not be able to stay away from the keyboard and do something stupid. It's sometimes harder than discretionary.

Btw, algo could be a good way to test mechanically your rules. Your writings here make me think that maybe you don't rely on your rules as you think.
