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.

Backtesting Support · Closing a position the end of the first day

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,
