I’ve spent a few hours analysing past data to see if restricting price entry points would have any effect. On each day I checked, today, Friday, Wednesday and the previous Wednesday(crash day), all had better outcomes and also more consistent p&l movement as shown on a graph.
In particular, crash-day went from large loss to above average gain. Number of bets reduced between 25% and 50%.
A major flaw was discovered in the code today. An if statement which had been copied and pasted was incorrectly edited, basically resulting in no lay-then-back trades. IMPORTANT NOTE always double check each line of code AND run the code through each possible flow!!!
