Re: Simple strategy making profit

You have only tested 569 bars of which 562 are ambiguous. You really need more data to ascertain if it is a viable strategy.

Cheers

Re: Simple strategy making profit

Here is the test of this strategy for last 6 years for Nasdaq 100. It seems to have 50% profit per year! SpiderMan - do you think it will work? Or I missed something else? Is it big issue that many of my bars are ambiguous (I am using pessimistic strategy)?
