Optimizing for Maximum Favorable Excursion in Tradestation 10


We had a "one-off" trade in our Momentum Reversals Nasdaq trading system on FOMC day this week.


We had a trade that was up over $6000 intra-trade that was stopped out for -$1200.


It is difficult to improve strategies by micro-managing them.


We show how to get rid of this "one off" trade by using optimization for discovery using a dollar trailing stop loss but also how micro- managing this strategy in this way, hurts performance instead of improving performance.
