@ES - Converting indicators which often seem useless into a trading model. a.) it's the logic used to build the model not the indicators that make it successful. So it looks good but looks can be deceiving why not automated it? a.) the human eye will mislead you to look for big moves, but chipping is more profitable. Based on fixed ratio starting with 1 ES and levering with no additional risk up to 10 contracts. Only wins 57% of the time, run 24hrs a day non stop, 50k to 1,000,000. in 100 days. 1 to 2 risk reward - yes 200 risked for 100 made "embrace the risk" opposite of the norm. Draw-down was less than 12%, so obviously I was disappointed with that. For years I tried incorporating reversion to the mean with trend trading and found it's better just to park when it's trending and capture the majority of the market action which is choppy action. Happy to answer questions and give insights to building your own model. Mark PS I have been running this system for over 15 years so it's not over over optimized, I just added the fixed ratio component to it otherwise it would have just made under 100k over the same 100 days. By contrast an always in model which incorporates both reversion to the mean and trending modes. Seems at first glance to make more money and it does but when you figure in the slippage and commissions of bidirectional trading you wind up with less. But it looks impressive to the eye.
