I'll Take the challenge.
What are you looking for in terms of verification though? I can share my output files from NinjaTrader from market replay results:

Would something like this satisfy the requirements or would you like to see more details?

Let me know and I will be glad to play:

Ian

I planned challenge for my own expirence, but it will be great if you can take part.
What do you mean with "share my output files from NinjaTrader from market replay results"?
I planned to post results once a week or two weeks.

Trades are the next ones


It was 3 active trading days out of 10.
And I didn't trade at days with high volatility.
After the first 2 trading days I had involed into trading >5k of a profit. So I could add 5 contracts to max number of 20 contracts. The added risk was only from the profit.
A start max intraday margin is 20k (1k per contract howewer many of a brokers allow 0.5k). A max risk is 40k. So, I need for trading total 60k.
The main goal is not to force myself to trade EVERY day.

With best regards,
