    If it’s just one market (YM), probably, if you don’t have the patience. That’s why I apply my system on multiple markets, ER2, EC, YM, TY.

    Research, enhance my system’s code (there’s always work to be done in that area), read or listen to music.

    Can be hard at times. Occasionally. I still have to remind myself that no matter what, “don’t interfere with the system!” I’ve done my part, now let it do its.

  2. Three years of data?? might not be enough... You can translate 10 YM point for about 1 ES point and just multiply the price reference with a ratio within your system and see if it works for ES. They should be highly correlated.

    Automated trading has its own challenges... I am still learning myself.

    55 points per trade. 1-2 trades per day. That's an awful lot of money, especially for a mechanical day-trade system. Sorry to be cynical but it doesn't sound like it will work in the real world to me.

    But good luck anyway.

  4. You are right, I made a mistake. Its $55/trade or 11 tics on the YM.
