Doesn't look very profitable, would you really use a 50% stoploss?

yes you re right i checked other years too ..the problem is year 2008.. all other years are positive ...
45% stoploss
45% profit
45 days holding
19 max open..
year 2011 was the best.. if you look at equity summary..
the other problem ..it is picking the biggest volume gainer.. but how to test for example the 2nd biggest vol.gainer at the end of day?
