The reason I actually published this, is because people have been asking me what the best way to find the best settings for a strategy. So I made a YouTube video showing people how I personally do it. I took this built in strategy and within 5 minutes took it from a net profit loss and profit factor of 0.5 to a net profit win with a profit factor of 3-5.
Of course this is only on the 1 minute candles, so forward testing the strategy is a must as I do not recommend straight up taking this and trading it.
You can watch the video here:
Hope this helps everyone speed up their back testing and fine tuning their strategies.
