A couple questions, you have a max hold time of 10 days regardless if exit has triggered or not?
What does it mean when there is a 2 in the exit column. Any relevance?

++++++++++
1. Yes - you close the position regardless of profit or loss.
2. The code for the exit is "close if X OR Y occurs" and SF code requires you to look for either one using the count() function. As a result, there are times when both exit criteria are triggered and you get a 1 + 1 = 2 result in the column.

Using the SF code, yes. However, the original Stratasearch code does not show this as triggering, possibly due to small differences in the way indicators are calculated. Your call on this - if you have not taken any short positions you are able to enter at a better price than several of the filters that triggered earlier.

So I've been watching these the last 2 days at close, and both times it showed 1 or 2 entries to go
long Vix only to disappear after hours. Odd. Plus, what happened to the late buy signal on no.5?
Did that vanish?
