When developing past systems I have always done so using Tradestation and have used the feature they offer to optimize entries/stops/exits. Now I just started keeping track of a new strategy on an excel worksheet. After 100 foward tested trades I now have enough data to come to some type of conclusion. How does one correctly optimize? for stops do you use the median or the mean of the total # of points trades went against you? what about for exits? thanks!!
