So I just spent a ridiculous amount of time finding a strategy that works well with the "setbreakeven" code as an exit on daily bars. Of course I embarrassingly remembered that with this type of exit on a daily bar I have to try it with Look-inside-bar setting activated. Of course the whole strategy failed with that setting enabled...

I don't have faith that I will be able to "save" this strategy but would still like to make an attempt by asking the forum if they have any advice on what code or rule I could try to add to give the strategy some "wiggle room" so it would resemble the daily chart but without the look-inside-bar enabled. As of now, as soon as the profit reaches the breakeven amount, and then falls below that it just exits.

I know it's a long shot but I thought I might as well ask...

Have you tried modifying the code to work on minute bars instead of on daily bars?
