Hi,
Improving the number of winning trades is a good idea, but i suggest you also consider increasing the size of the stop-loss, and the exit strategies. Very often, a very simple idea can get incredible results with a different position strategy.
Otherwise, for your intial request, you can also look a the trades in the "Trades" results of a backtest and try to see which are the similitudes between winning trades. I could be volume, day change, moving averages. Add indicators to you charts, and try to have a first clue of what seems to work, then add it to your backtest.
Good luck.

Usually it takes less than 20 sec, unless you have hundreds of lines in your filters !
I suggest you try another browser, empty the cache memory, try a very simple filter to see if it comes from your filter.
Good luck.

Hello,
I'm deseperatly trying to backtest my strategy, but I have a small problem.
I configure my backtest to keep for a maximum of 1 day, and set the closing at "close", and the opening at "open", unfortunately, the backtest keeps the trade overnight, and I can't manage how to set it to close the position at the end of the first day.
Any help would be much appriciated,
Sorry if my english is not perfect,
Thanks
Nicholas
