I added a filter for my reversal bar setups and now there are less of them to show.

As long as it remains a profitable strategy, then less trades is fine.

It's about making more money, not trading more.

I went through the same process, ended up filtering out most of my trades, but my PnL thanked me. Good luck

I am going to start posting the setups I am skipping because I think they will provide a good source to refer back to when reviewing my results.

So far I have skipped 3 setups in the last week that would have resulted in a loss.

I trade the first 90 minutes of each market. That is when volume is highest and when the market makers are active.
