this is a 60-min bar system that holds overnight. i am using a simple crossover system, except the indicator is something that i have been working on and is proprietary. just wanted to know what you thought, because i am very new to strategy design. i haven't attempted to optimize yet. i was only able to test as far back as esignal let me (6 months). traded 2000 shares of qqq at a time. $40 commission per round trip. thanks there will be more to come.
