Just don't get too sucked into the results that gekkoga can give you. Strategies that generate lots of profit through hundreds of trades a day don't work in live as the order can't be filled quickly enough, and strategies that generate massive trades in backtests by hitting tops and bottoms of each peak perfectly are generally not good in live as the market is very unlikely to repeat itself.

Sacrificing overall backtest proft for a good percentage of +ve round trips, low drawdowns and good sharpe ratio will  often give a far better performance in live trading - but nothing is guaranteed Smile

Thanks for the tip. That is similar to what I was thinking.
Aiming for a strat that is not in for a long time and essentially scalps on shorter time frames 4-8 times a day. 
I started out like many around March thinking there was a dip. Boy was I wrong! My capital is not what is once was. Wink
