Range bars 5. It was a runaway strategy that kept opening positions in a way that wouldn't work live. As for bull and bear - it was all one day.

Doesn't look too bad. A few questions - what is the average trade PnL, and does it include commission? Is it market, limit or stop entry? Are most of the trades during EU/US day, or night?
