Well the difference maybe because the exit seems to be the next day at open , after it moves above the lines, and not at the close of the same day

The only "non-standard" setting I am using is that I am keeping the maximum number of open positions at 100, rather than 250. Still keeping it at 25 max trades per day. Given that I look at trading costs as well, a $400 investment (the usual amount when the max open positions setting is 250) means that I have to make a minimum of 5% to cover trading costs. At $1000, it's only 2%.

Still selecting by volume descending - this may also affect which stocks are selected.
