The results look good but what matters most is how the testing has been done. I hope you have kept curve fitting in mind while developing this. Let us see how this performs in the live market, that is when real learning would come.
May was a good month to trade. Last 4 months have been very testing in many aspects. I had to deal with situations which i have not dealt so far.

Its been quite a time since i have made an update. I was busy in some personal activities.

Anyone incurring less...
