Higher blood pressure strains the hearth.
I am not a doc, but a lower blood pressure will make your hearth works for a longer time.
So be happy : )

He already solved this question hundreds of years ago.
Simplifying his suggestions, it is worth to reduce more the possible numbers of rollovers.
Why not? Less Fee, less slippage.
Doing this research, you will also find that not all active months are used by traders, especially in Grain Futures.

link symbols

Have you linked your simbols for a better test?
Double check that Trading Blox is reading them, because till you save, chart, rewrite, rerfresh and make a prayer, could it be that csi chart is linked, but trading blox is still reading the old file.

What if today is 30 dec 2010.
Are your best parameters 45 /150?
If not, look at results on the last 24 month with new parameters.
You are testing with one million as starting equity.
Try also 500.0000 and 1.500.000.
