    I would be very happy to discuss ideas that help me avoid those nasty spikes.

    This is one of the the reason why human being is still required in trading. My own experience is if there is a spike that triggers the entry, you may sometimes need to cancel the entey. It depends on the amplititude of the spike, of course.

    Here is a link to the math behind the scenes.
  5. Very interesting article. Are there any others like that?
