I've played around with automated trading for several years with limited success. I can get my different ideas to work with Excel receiving data and sending trade signals to Interactive Brokers. The problem is that whenever I test something for 100+ trades, the result is always close to breaking even. Does anyone have any idea what method of trading would give me the best chance for success? Which equity works best with automated trading? I've tried all different methods, moving average crosses, breakouts, buy at the lower band, sell at the upper band etc. etc.
