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.

Hi @tradethetick, may I enquire what kind of filter do you use? Can you elaborate on it as well?

Thanks in advance!

Hi,

The only filter I added was to no longer take reversal bars against a steep trend. Now I look to only take them with the trend if the trend is steep. The trend I look at is in the time frame I am trading.

Hope that answers your question.
