The code for the Ghost Trader is designed more as a template than a complete trading strategy. Some trading strategies incorporate the success of the last trade signal in the calculation/determination of the next trade signal. We have tested several methodologies that only initiate new positions after a losing trade. Some traders feel that there exists a high probability of failure on the next trade signal if the last trade was closed out with a profit. This approach is much easier to trade than historically back test. It’s easy to keep track of your trades and then skip the hypothetical trades that don’t meet your criteria.
