Here is a summary of the rule changes. Our increase in net profit comes at the cost of more trades which is due to the fact of lowering the stand on what we consider a viable pullback. By increasing the RSI threshold from 5 to 10 more setups qualify as a valid entry, thus we take more trades. But we also increased our look-back period for our exit calculation. Thus, we should be holding some of the trades a little longer in an attempt to make more profit.

The stop value does hurt the performance of our model. It will also help protect us from massive losing trades as seen in Stops do hurt the system, but our modified rules do continue to perform well.
