...The only filter I added was to no longer take reversal bars against a steep trend...

Thanks for sharing, tradethetick. Just a suggestion, you may wish to explore if an ATR trailing stop can help you filter or stay in the trend.

Here is the link to Fat Tails's SuperTrend indicator for NT7:
https://futures.io/local_links_sort.php?catid=19&filter=&sort=d&page=1&pp=10&keyid=47

I'm still can't see the reversal bars myself, but I've attached a M3 chart for your reference. The simple ATR trailing stop setting is just 1-bar period and ATR=2. Hopefully, it may be of help to you..

Forgot to add that it is a lagging indicator, but I think if it's set to just a few bar periods, it can provide a current volatility range to look at.
