I'm not sure I have enough data to answer all your questions but I'll do my best. I was taking ever instance of the setup so I could track various conditions and then perhaps filter out the best setups.

1) Entry, breakout long above high of a bar that has a large range and large volume. Stop set to 3 ES pts and target set to 9 ES pts. vice versa for short.

2,3,4) Stay in trade until stop or target is hit, or signal in opposite direction.

The screen shot attached shows an ES long.

My equity curve has been pretty choppy though. I'm looking to adjust my setups, I think I'm better suited for a longer time frame like a 30 minute bar chart. I have switched to that and done some initial visual backtesting and will now forward test it for awhile.

thx conal

perhaps, just perhaps, on exit you could have a smaller time frame screen to guide you, if and when direction changes--so perhaps you could decide to close out your profitable/nonprofitable trade without having to suffer the full stop. just a whimsicality.

good and profitable trading, conal.

No Trading on Thursday 3/15/12.

I was traveling for work so I was not able to trade. It can be frustrating to be pulled away from practicing and screen time, but it's a necessary evil. In fact next week, I'll be traveling Tuesday - Thursday. I was able to read a little today. I'm reading Outliers by Malcolm Gladwell. I highly recommend it! I hope I'll be able to read while I'm traveling. I plan on re-reading Markets in Profile by James Dailton.

That's a good suggestion, I'll definitely have to keep that in mind going forward. Thanks! Happy trading.
