That seems like it should work, I would test it to make sure.

Yes, when it is 50, the strategy will not place any trades the first 50 bars. In your case, the value could be as small as 1 or 2, since the strategy never needs to look further back in history than...

Might be a MaxBarsBack issue. Try having the chart start date 50 bars before 1170103 - something like a chart start date of 1161001 should work.

Automated code will always buy/sell the data1 symbol in the chart.

Right now your chart should have @MESH22 for data1.

That should let you automate the strategy.

Be careful, and I think you...

You said you have a US account, you could use some of that. I guess you have to decide if you want to pay a legit debt, or a way to escape your responsibilities.

Good Luck, I hope it works out for you. But just keep in mind that it is dangerous to say "a few large losing trades to fix." It is a slippery slope to curvefitting and real time failure.

Why though?

.3*3-.7*1 = .2 Expectancy

(.3*3-.7*1)/1 = .2 Van Tharp Expectancy


If that is after accounting for slippage and commission, I'd say that is pretty good!
