Thanks, I've tried that, it's not quite what I'm looking for. I want to be able to stop and reverse anywhere where the system tester would ordinarily stop out, i.e. on a specific % or point loss, or break even or whatever, rather than on the value of the parabolic SAR indicator.
What are your reservations with the system tester? Testing in particular or just Metastock's implementation?
I agree with Darth so far as the System Tester is concerned, and I only use it to indicate maximum profit/loss entry/exit points set against my charges and making allowance for the bid/offer price. This allows me to back test any indicators I use together with the Explorer in seeking opportunities.
