Actual trade results to be posted beginning 4/13. Thoughts... When do you know where to put your stop? Small means you hit it often. Large means you lose all your gains. If you think this conjecture is bogus, go run the statistics yourself. It would be a simple program. I hope you are not implementing this system live (or wasting your time paper trading) without having real information. If it were this easy, everyone around here would be a rich man Edit/Delete • Quote • Complain

But you can make an educated guess with iterative and / or quantitative methods, tech analysis or fading your favorite contrary indicator. Edit/Delete • Quote • Complain

I will be releasing VSS.2 after I review the feedback I have received, and determine the best ways to tweak the system. Edit/Delete • Quote • Complain
